Originals of covers ... if you know what I mean!
Didn't realise this was the original til today
Otis Redding - Respect
Northern Soul classic was given a dark 80's makeover by Soft Cell and later by Marilyn Manson
Gloria Jones - Tainted Love
For any Irish person over 18 this will bring back memories of Mark McCabe's Maniac 2000. Fun fact: The 4th biggest selling Irish single of all time!
Michael Sembello - Maniac
Sugababes covered this after it appeared on a Lynx ad. Fun fact: Ernie K. Doe went on to present radio shows on various new Orleans radio stations, frequently promoting his own music, wearing a cape and declaring himself "Emperor Of The Universe"
Ernie K. Doe - Here Come The Girls
