    actually it’s only just ‘interesting’ until about 2:15, at which point it becomes pure Billy Bragg

    And not REALLY a cover, but sort of (from about 1:25 including the lead up)

    But good to see Snuff get a mention, their cover of the Shake n Vac jingle was a seminal work.

    Natalie Imbruglia – Torn

    Step On – Happy Mondays.

    No. Just, no! The original pisses in its boots and pwns it with bombers.
    That aside,
    Without You – Harry Nilsson. Much better than Badfinger’s original, sadly it’s almost impossible to find the original on YouTube.

    I think it was Annie Nightingale’s request show on a Sunday night back when the Mondays’ version was out, they did a show dedicated to different versions of Step On. Sadly pre-iPlayer so not available to listen again, unless anyone has it on tape..

    Joss Stone – Fell in love with a boy

    Oh, and…CountZero – you are dead to me. 😉

    Well it’s not really a cover, and it’s not exactly a remix either, but it’s certainly a musical reinterpretation so…
