    How about Bill Bailey doing "The Hokey Cokey" in the style of Kraftwerk - look for the Live version on YT.

    Yes, I remember that. I seem to remember Kevin Eldon turning up for that.
    Was that the same concert he did the national anthem as played by Portishead? Or something similar?

    RLJ has done some cracking cover versions:

    Up From The Skies
    Showbiz Kids
    Coming Back To You
    Walk Away Renee
    Rainbow Sleeves

    off the top of my head

    Agreed, my favourite is probably her version of Rebel Rebel on the Traffic from Paradise album.

    That's really rather brilliant.

    Something sillier. What is it with white funk bands and Heavy Metal covers?

    Without a doubt, Stan Webb (Stan the man live) playing 'Thrill is gone' I never tire of playing this track at live concert volume, as intended

    Other contenders, there are so many, would include Cat Power - 'New York New York' and The Stones on Shine a light concert DVD - 'I heard it through the grapevine' (not everyone's cup of tea but well worth a listen)
