Looking for stripped down versions of pop and rock songs

I recently have become very fond of some vocal track only versions of pop and rock songs that someone had reversed engineered from DVDs and posted online, and I would like to find more music like this.

What I really liked about these songs was not they were acappella arrangements (with many parts), but just the vocal tracks from the songs, creating a really simple, stripped down sound, rather like Frente's cover
of "Bizarre Love Triangle". I've been playing this music to relax or fall asleep, because even relatively energetic songs are softer when they are just voices and little or no instrumentation.
I would like to find more songs like these, whether unplugged versions, stripped down covers, or even just vocal tracks extracted from studio recordings that weren't originally acappella or stripped down. I saw the post the other day about the site with vocal tracks from Queen, etc, and that was great, but they all seemed to be in video format and I would rather find audio files or CDs that I can purchase and put on a music player.
