I am not so sure that jamendo covers of popular tunes are free to use, since songwriter royalties
are required to be paid in the US.  I doubt that Bob Dylan has granted royalty-free use of
"I Shall Be Released," for example.

In general, it works better if freely-licensed original compositions are used, not merely
arrangements or covers of existing compositions.

Jamendo is another possibility but I cannot point
to a particular author, my musical tastes are rather particular... :)
