I love the Flaming Lips, and that is one mad cover version, but I do prefer Roberta Flack's cover personally

Nice one gel. Rock fans will always be rock fans, so I'm not expecting you to be fully converted, but I do love these tunes, and they're worth a listen if you haven't heard them before.

Personally, I was converted from goth, to anything but goth :grin:

Dexy's Midnight Runners - Jackie Wilson Said

Close to the original, but I do prefer this version.

Plus, this is the classic TOTP appearance with a picture of Jocky Wilson the darts player in the background....OOOOPS!!!
