Haha. I've actually been meaning to make a mix of cover songs where I don't like the original at all. I won't normally use a track a 2nd time unless it's super important though, so I doubt Sign Your Name will be in it.

I had the same plan when I started out. Typically, I don't even like to repeat an artist on one mix, but I was especially loathe to repeat songs from one mix on another. Then, I got myself involved in a couple of unforeseen little projects that required me to use some that I had featured previously. Fortunately for me, hardly anyone has listened to my earlier mixes. So, not too many people were in on my dirty little secret.
I must say, however, that I wouldn't be upset if that track found its way into your cover mix. Nope, not one bit.

I used to double up artists a lot more than I do now. I understand it's generally frowned upon, but since I make the mixes for myself, I'll still do it when I want to. Some mixes would be impossible to make without doubling the artists. For example, I have several all Italian composer mixes (horror or erotic), and basically, 6 composers scored 95% of all Italian films in the 60s and 70s, so that's hard to get around. The times I have used a track more than once, it's either because I lost track and the 8tracks search function doesn't work great since they changed like half of all my track information, or because I'm using the track politically a second time. Like, I had used "Take This Job And Shove It" on a punk rock mix, then used it again for a Labor Day mix, because that's just fucking science mate. But that's something I definitely try to never do.

this is your 3rd mix i'm listening to and they're all really great. haven't listened to his name is alive for a while, almost forgot how good those little pieces are. keep up the good work!

Thanks for the kind words! HNIA is one of my absolute favorite bands in the world. They still make amazing records, but those first two albums are hauntingly beautiful.
