In a follow up to this post, it seems I have recently found a glut of rather good cover versions:
Nouvelle Vague – Too Drunk To Fuck – one of Jello Biafra’s classic West Coast punk songs turned into bossa nova beat lounge music. Should you want to you can download their version of Killing Moon, courtesy of LastFM
Went to a party / I danced all night / I drank 16 beers / And I started up a fight / But now I’m jaded / You’re out of luck / I’m rollin’ down the stairs / Too drunk to fuck /
Be on my side / I’ll be on your side / Baby / There is no reason /For you to hide /It’s so hard for me /Staying here all alone /When you could be / Taking me for a ride.
Bobby Womack – California Dreaming – the Mamas and Papas song given a mellow soul going over.
Stopped into a church / I passed along the way / Well, I got down on my knees / Got down on my knees / And I pretend to pray
Hey mr pharmacist / Words cannot express / Feeling I suggest / Oh mr pharmacist I can plead / Gimme some of that powder I need / Mr pharmacist
