Ok it's a fair cop - I retract. William Shatner ?
The Dickies - Banana Splits (Tra La La Song)
Though they also did a stunning 100mph cover version of Paranoid, which I am sad enough to still possess on clear vinyl (and yer average person will only know the Banana Splits song, and then only if you're of a certain age)
really? she had loads of hits and was one of the biggest pop starts of the 60s - and she was fucking great! you owe it to yourself to check her out.
The Futureheads - Hounds of Love
KWS - Please don't go
That Stiltskin abomination is Smashing Pumpkins's abomination Today backwards.
I have a copy of their version of 'Eve of Destruction on pink vinyl
Ugly Kid Joe - Cat's In The Cradle
son of a preacher man?
Will to Power had three of these (and in only two songs).
Not sure how well remembered the 10cc cover was, but I still hear the first one from time to time.
No Mr Cash doesn't count I'm afraid.
I was surprised you didn't think of son of a preacher man with dusty springfield, I'd say that's by far and away her most famous tune. Wasn't talking about Johnny Cash at all.
Coast to Coast - Do the Hucklebuck
Marmalade - Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da
Boogie Box High - Jive talkin
Everything About You also so no cigar.
sorry I'm confused I'm typing away on 3 different forums rather than working which is not a good look.
No Way Sis - I'd Like to Teach The World To Sing
This is a articularly ironic one as No Way Sis were an Oasis cover band, but their most/only famous song is one that Oasis weren't allowed to sing as they got sued by coke.
I was going to mention this one, but I didn't realise "I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing' was ever an Oasis song (even with the obvious Coke ripoff)? I just thought it was a parody/pastiche of Oasis.
It wasn't an Oasis song, but it was a cover. Of the New Seekers. Which is why Oasis couldn't sing it. they didn't get permission. But No Way Sis did.
So an Oasis coverband, whose most famous song was a cover, was not a cover of an Oasis song
For more info/clairty, the reason they did this song is because it sounded like Shakermaker by Oasis, which itself was almost a cover of the New Seekers tune.
It's a quality track/video TBF.
Right my third attempt William Orbit's cover of Barber's Adagio for Strings. Cos though Orbit is well known to those in the know - most people could only cite that if pushed.
I suspect most people, if they know Addagio for Strings at all, would know only the Tiesto version...
Actually the above version is the Ferry Corsten Remix of Orbit's version of Adagio For Strings.
That maybe so but Orbit and then a remix by Ferry Corsten got their first in 1995....Tiesto 2004.
Shola Ama - You Might Need Somebody
Christ I forgot how shit that is.
#151. William Shatner is more famous for his unique interpretation of Lucy in the Sky with diamonds.
Oh and he was in a TV series as well
