Notes

Two covers of Joy Division's biggest hit "Love Will Tear Us Apart" released for Valentine's Day. The first version, subtitled "consecutive mix", is sampled from 103 existing versions of the song by a variety of stylistically divergent artists. Each cover version is represented by a one- or at most two-bar sample, which are reassembled in the order of the original song. The second, subtitled "simultaneous mix", simply plays all 103 versions at the same time.
