Good cover of the Happy MOndays classic...really manage to get that 70s look and sound
I think that is the original version from the 70's!
I remember it well
Lithium - Polyphonic Spree
it is indeed...i was trying to make a joke
Welcome to the jungle
Sorry I'm a bit slow on the uptake
Here's a not-too-bad cover of a 1930's Bing Crosby classic by some soul singer or other

Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain - Pinball Wizard.
I was expecting a windmill on a ukelele there for a moment, at least some vigarous strumming
Four chaps from East Dulwich offer a version of John Lennon's Cold Turkey which is far superior to the original:
I saw these play this song on The Tube tv show and recorded their performance by putting a tape recorder next to the telly. It was all I ever heard by them until the internet and I played that tape to death! I think it's way better than the original too.
Winehouse's Valerie is the only acceptable version, imo.
unusual and the tv show it was in was GOOD
headphones for best results. god, this is good...
They split up after this, their second 12" single, was released so there sadly wasn't anything more to hear. The Coyne brothers (bass and vocals) formed the Godfathers who were good for a bit then not as interesting but quite popular for several albums thereafter. The other two became the Unholy Trinity who released a great demo quality 5 track EP then packed up. Sid Presley Experience graffiti used to adorn the walls of Herne Hill and elsewhere before the singles came out so I was vaguely aware of them before I'd heard them.
i might be alone in preferring the original but this cover is still superb
Billy Stewart kills Summertime.
Ace of Spades cover by Alice Coopers band including Nita Strauss
a cover of the professionals' 'join the professionals'

Not particularly unusual version, maybe an unusual tune to cover at all. Good.
