The Eighties are a decade ripe for covering. Eighties covers are also one of those subsets with which bands seem to have the most fun.
One of the best examples from the past few years has got to be The Futureheads’ joyous run-through of Hounds of Love. It’s also worth taking a look at Kokolo’s Afrobeat version of The Clash’s Magnificent Seven, this genius marching band cover of Personal Jesus and – best of all – Adagio’s metal re-take on Fame.
E is also for... Electronica: You can often rely upon electronic-tinged covers to have a wealth of oddball charm. Need proof? Try The Postal Service’s cover of Against All Odds and Nekked’s version of Simon and Garfunkel’s The Boxer.
