I like a good cover song.   I'm not talking about when Boyzone and Westlife or whatever resurrect some song from the seventies and make it utterly more shit.   I'm talking about reasonably inspired and respectful re-interpretations of other artists' work.

Let's start out with a fun, but easy one.

Being a teenager through large parts of the seventies I was a fan of David Bowie; therefore, I'm slightly embarrassed to say that I much prefer Lulu's version of The Man Who Sold The World, mainly because of the saxophone.

Nice one Halo; enjoyed that.   In recognition of it being Friday, here is a nice, dancey cover.

Who'd have thought Alanis Morrisette such decent source material for such a storming track?

Yeah, that's nice, Pap - it's the sort of thing I Iike to listen to on my ipod when working out in the gym.

Misread the post title as

"Cover us in gloy"

Pretty disappointed with the contents of the thread after that.

No offence papster, I mean it's a great thread and I'll contribute more fully later, it's just that there isn't any gloy and nobody being covered in anything.

Another of my favourite covers from the seventies is Lene Lovich's version of The Night, originally recorded by The Four Seasons

Goatster, are we the same person?

I'll raise you this, which I expect might also raise something in Flyd Owl.
