This smells like another thread from days past (from eis, erasure.org/com, fora. etc), but bears a repeat!

I was listening to The Smiths' "How Soon Is Now?" and, for a split-second, wondered how this would sound from Richard Butler...until I remembered he covered it already for The Psychedelic Furs.

Now, I wonder what else would sound good from others. One I always opined in the past was The Pointer Sisters' "Jump!" being done by Jimmy Somerville. I think that would have been amazing in his "Read My Lips" era, and charted too.

What's yours?

I could totally envision Jimmy doing a cover of Jump, now that you mention it!  This is a toughie.  Hard to come up with specific examples out of the blue, but it's the kind of thing you think of while listening to music!

My first thought is I'd like to see Depeche Mode cover a New Order song.  New Order cover a Pet Shop Boys song.  And PSB cover an Erasure song!

I see more Yazoo covers made than Erasure for some odd reason.

Love that Kylie covered "Only You"!

I agree that DM covering New Order would be amazing!!

And Tin, I totally love Jimmy's "Read My Lips" era!! Actually, it would be cool for Erasure to cover the track, "Read My Lips" feat. Jimmy!!

I thought he did the cover while in Love Spit Love, not the furs?  

I always wanted to hear Andy sing Yazoo's Only You.

Oh, could be. Perhaps my mistake there!

Glad to hear it! I'd still love to hear Jimmy do "Jump", but Jimmy and Andy doing "Read My Lips" would be amazing. Maybe if they toured, or did a show together at some festival and closed with that track?

The CD ought to come in Russian dolls of each band inside the other.
