Best, strangest... or maybe just most inappropriate covers of all time?
Jan 21, 2017, 10:40
Leaving sampling, plagiarism and sheer money-grabbing opportunism aside.... I reckon cover versions are a valid way of setting an artist's work in context with their influences. Or plugging that hole in that song writing block? My starter for 10:

1) Have a Cigar - John Foxx
2) Respect - Dexys
3) Rock n'Roll Pt2 (I think, never can remember)/ You've Lost That Loving Feeling .... both need a mention - early Human League
4) Police & Thieves - The Clash
5) The More I See You - OMITD
6) Goldfinger - Magazine
7) Always on my Mind - Pet Shop Boys
8) Can't Get Used To Losing You - The Beat
9) The Meaning of Love - Marsheaux
10)5 o'clock World - the wondrous Mr Cope. Although no doubt he thinks it's shite nowadays.

Oh, one more: 11) Tainted Love - Soft Cell
