Talk about reviving your old threads. Now, I don't have a link to any video, but I always thought Duran Duran's entire covers album "Thank you" was kinda odd. It's got some good ones though, like "White Lines" and "Perfect day".

I love how committed they seem to the bit. Phonetic Korean and all.

To some, it might seem odd that Juliana Hatfield did an album entirely consisting of covers of songs from Olivia Newton John but I actually think it turned out pretty great. I just got it a couple days ago from Amazon and have been listening to it over and over and I highly recommend it, because while it's different in some respects, I really like Juliana's voice and the instrumentation too. Even if you're a hardcore fan of ONJ, I still really recommend checking it out.

This cover of the Destiny's Child hit "Bills Bills Bills" by They Might Be Giants is kinda strange.  A song by a trio of young black women covered by a couple middle age white men is certainly... anachronistic.

I'm not particularly religious, and I don't really like Muppets, but I do love word play.
