    Sorry to bump this dead thread, but have read through to the end and realised that Revolting Cocks' version of Do Ya Think I'm Sexy? is missing. An omission I had to rectify!

    Okay, cheers, in which case then Nouvelle Vague's cover of Tuxedo Moon's In a Manner of Speaking is definitely better than the original.

    Marilyn Manson's is a wall of noise and shouting and the video's full gratuitous tit shots. Crap.

    Soft cell's version is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than Marilyn Manson.
     
  28. AnnO'Neemus

    AnnO'Neemus Is so vanilla

    Exciting? Wall of noise guitar. Put reverberate on the voice ++++++++
