There's been a conspicuous lack of a) Swedish acts and b) quirky cover versions featured on this blog recently. So here are some Swedish acts performing quirky cover versions. Now I can't say fairer than that. (Damned speech impediment!)
The featured songs were originally made famous by: Depeche Mode, Bonnie Tyler and Lady Saw. Oh alright, so I've never heard of that last one either. But if you've ever wondered what an all-female a cappella choir tackling a Jamaican dancehall number would sound like (and I'd be astonished if you hadn't, frankly), here's your chance to find out.
The Wannadies - Just Can't Get Enough mp3
Stickboy - Total Eclipse of the Heart mp3
The Sweptaways with Robyn - I've Got Your Man mp3
BTW, my jury service finished the other day. Did I mention that? I think it may have slipped my mind at the time. Anyway, because it was such a long case, I've now got a ten year exemption from it (a bit like when a golfer wins a major championship, only without the concomitant bad trousers and large cheque). Result!
