>Goldfinger- Magazine

and don't forget the soft cell bond numbers! (croons) "you only live twice"

and talking of SC, what about the version of ghost rider he performed on switch in the early 80's with clint ruin. fab stuff!

>The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot- Associates

Billy did loads...

Boys keep swinging / groovin' with my bloe / green tambourine etc and, best of all, (but tragically the bad luck song) on sulk...gloomy sunday.

His version of never turn your back on mother earth is pretty good, too, even if it's not much different to the original sparks version. just good to hear billy do it.

we'll turn a blind eye to heart of glass, shall we ; )

>Wild is the Wind- David Bowie

His version of Verlaine's Kingdom Come & Nite Flights are among his better cover versions imo, though my fave has to be the very simple but effective Sorrow!

>After Hours- REM (the Velvets song)

And strange (wire)

>24 Hours- Low (Joy Division cover- see 'Transmission' ep)

And their version of the smiths last night i dreamt that somebody loved me, which i played only yesterday! like it a lot.

>Love Will Tear Us Apart- Swans

or paul, cough, young ; )

>Like a Virgin- Teenage Fanclub


>Can't Get You Out of My Head- Flaming Lips

as in ELO??

>September Song- The Young Gods

I'm rather partial to lou's MOR treatment of it myself!

>D'Ya Think I'm Sexy?- Revolting Cocks

one i mentioned. awesome!!
