Cover Versions List
(or, 'Sprout Songs Done By Other People')

Various fans have requested a page keeping track of all the Sprout 'cover versions' that have been released - a term defined very broadly on this page as a song written by Paddy McAloon, then recorded by someone else.  Obviously there are dozens I don't know about, especially in the YouTube category, so if you know any then email me with the details.

Clicking the links will (hopefully) take you to a page where you can buy them, or simply where you can watch/listen to it.
