Go-Go's thread reminds me that the Go-Go's did a rather decent version of a Specials' song (Ghost Town?), and then Fun Boy Three, in turn, did a Go-Go's song...also pretty great.
(Do I have that right?)
Doesn't happen as often anymore, does it? I mean, other than some tribute thing, or some charity thing.
Thread is twofold: name great covers by contemporary artists; and/or name band and contemporary song you think they ought to cover.
