RE: Cover Versions - The Good The Bad & "I'm Going To Kill Them For This!"
Lana Del Ray has a wonderful Nancy Sinatra style of singing, but whose idea was it for someone to be banging a metal dustbin lid in the background?

That Tony Bennett one reminds me how awful mono records sound. I'm more familiar with the re-vamped version that came out to tie in with that awful film of the same name back in the days when there was a rash of Hollywood movies all named after songs (Blue Velvet, Tequilla Sunrise, Pretty In Pink).

Next up, the brilliant & tragic Oliver's Army





Blur's cover was butchery in my view. It sounds like some kid at his kid's school concert doing it with a stylophone.

Was looking for something to gaze vaguely at while I shoved dinner into my face and settled upon one of the TOTP repeats from 1980. And so, by chance, encountered a cover version for this thread.

I don't really like The Beatles' verson of "I Want To Hold Your Hand".





But it's better than the 1980 cover by Dollar!





Arrrrrgggggh make them stop! Omg

The 1980s - synthetic music, synthetic fabrics, synthetic smiles. Good times.

Biggrin The DJ Dave Lee Travis was famous for how much he despised Dollar. Apparantly Dave Van Day & Theresa Bazar fought like cat & dog off stage, & were notoriously unpleasant to deal with.

Here's a better cover version from the same point in time:-





Annie Lennox - the musical Bet Lynch!
