For me it's Pretty and Twisted's Mother of Pearl. a great re-imagining, aggressive, wild and beautiful.

Any other great covers out there?

Siouxsie and the Banshees did a version of Sea Breezes on their 'Through The Looking Glass' album, and this is worth a listen.

A Really Good Time - Icehouse.
A Song for Europe - Dave Gahan.
Street Life - Def Leppard but only because it's Def Leppard. If you don't like Def Leppard then you won't like it. Wish they'd done it at download instead of Rock On. Still well worth a quick trip to the UK.
If roles were reversed, I'd LOVE to hear Ferry/Roxy sing Love Bites or When Love and Hate Collide. :roll:

Icehouse - 'A Really Good Time'.

As for role reversal I've always thought that 'Sweet Burning Love For You' by The Adventures would be right up Ferry's street,

oo will have to check these out. Ive only really heard Frank Blacks re-make/re-model and Virginia plain by Spizzenergi...which I think I read somewhere that Ferry really hated this :)

Another Johnette Napolitano cover: Concrete Blonde doing End of the Line, a nice version
