    Re: 80's Covers you actually like.

    I LOVE Orgy's version of "Blue Monday"!!!!

    Kissing a fool-Michael Buble (I know, I know )
    Boyz N the hood-Dynamite Hack
    Tainted love-Marilyn Manson(to be fair it's actually a 60's song by Gloria Jones but Marilyn is true to Soft Cell's arrangement)
    I could never take the place of your man-Jordan Knight (again, I know i know but his version of this Prince song is great)
    Wanna be startin' somethin'-Akon and Will I Am
    Word up-Korn
    Faith-Limp Bizkit

    I'm doing this off the top of my head, I'm sure there's about a million more

    you're dispicable!

    There is this great podcast I sometimes listen to called, Coverville that sometimes have great covers.
    Another great cover is Dire Straits "Walk of Life" and it's done by Shooter Jennings.

    Disturbed did two awesomne 80's covers...



    The best part is they did not really change the song just made it harder.

    I sound like a real snob, and a purest. But I don't think I've ever heard a cover of an 80s song that I can honestly say that I like.

    What about Tommy Silk's cover of Outfield's "Your Love" featuring YOU?? I'm working with 80's producer Tommy and his people to promote his free jingle generator staring you! Check it out at http://thejinglegenerator.com to get your own customized jingle . All you have to do is type or phone in your information - name, address, and business type- and the Jingle Generator and Tommy Silk will do the rest! Rock out with it!

    Re: 80's Covers you actually like.

    Whoo hoo here we go, i used to be really precious about 80's songs being covered. Now go to any club and you will hear the hook from an 80's song over a techno beat. Some of the more intelligent 80's covers i have heard are from an album called "Punk goes 80's".

    Relient K.- Manic monday
    Hidden In Plain View- I ran
    Halifax- Straight up

    Grinspoon- Don't change
    MXPX- Take on me
    The Ataris- Boys Of Summer
    Hillsong- Forever young
    Gary Jules- Mad world
    Novaspace- Time after time

    there are so many more, the 80's aren't protected anymore. Alot of artists don't even own the rights to their songs, so anyone can pretty much cover the music these days.
