I think cover versions should have their own thread:

]Chia Pet - Don't You Want Me Baby[/url]

Horrible!

Nice one, just like Phil said in Brugge 2006 about Sparky who "danced" during Neosupervital.

On the DYWM theme. They might be camper than a row of tents, but I quite like Alcazar's cover verson of DYWM. With their bloke and two birds combo, it is actually quite respectful to the original. Worth a listen if you havent heard it before.

Ruined by an over the top video. Which is so camp it makes Steps look like Metallica :(

Unfortunately (or is it fortunately?) the lovely Annikafiore Kjaergaard's vocals are not a patch on Susan's, (so who says our Sooz cant sing? ;))

EDIT: More info courtesy of Panzer's detailed "Cover Library"(see next post):

I've said it before but anyway Alcazar's version of DYWM is the best cover of a Human League song ever. I Love It. Some great mixes of it too.

However I approve of this one:

"Together In Electric Dreams" - Lali Puna (be warned, it sounds very different to the original)

Thanks for the link but that is quite possibly THE worst cover of a League song that I've ever heard.

You're right Patrick but isn't any Legaue promotion welcome ;-)

I collect them all but this is really the worst cover version I've seen on YT...

Interesting cover of DYWM from the soundtrack to the Secret Life of Walter Mitty remake.

Interesting cover of Darkness, not the worst cover of a League song I've ever heard.

The resemblance is striking and the randomness of dancing is somewhat familiar too ;-)
