Guys, thank you for the interest and in what strange places we sometimes find our favourite music :D

Not to miss a beat, here are the next two volumes. Baumann's one is among my best-loved covers ever, I cannot listen to the original (never could but even more so after hearing his take). The German language version is even better! Nash's version of "Dead man's curve" is really cool with that prolonged monologue, I like it immensely (Nash is generally cool, though, I recommend his stuff to everyone, sad he left us so early not getting the long-overdue recognition). Finally, Taco's cover, however overplayed and presumably cheesy, is still a very good refashioning and never loses its appeal with me.

Volume 05 - Yellow Magic Orchestra to Frankie Goes to Hollywood

01. Yellow Magic Orchestra - Tighten up [Archie Bell & The Drells]
02. Midge Ure - Living in the Past [Jethro Tull]
03. The Flying Lizards - Move on up [Curtis Mayfield]
04. Depeche Mode - Route 66 [Nat King Cole]
05. Klaus Nomi - The Twist [Chubby Checker]
06. Silicon Teens - Just Like Eddie [Heinz]
07. Peter Baumann - Strangers in the Night [Frank Sinatra]
08. Blondie - The Tide is High [The Paragons]
09. Associates - Gloomy Sunday [Billie Holiday]
10. Frankie Goes to Hollywood - (Do You Know the Way to) San Jose? [Dionne Warwick]

Time to continue, here are the next two volumes. Fast Set's one is probably my favourite here - just love that pure synth minimalism :D Techno Twins and Duffo are very fun, too. On the other hand, DuranX2's is atrocious - cannot believe how bad Le Bon is live. How did they go to such lengths and breadths with him as a singer is beyond me. At least Steve Harley got his just royalties from this train wreck...

Volume 07 - Naked Eyes to Dalek I

01. Naked Eyes - Always Something There to Remind Me [Sandie Shaw]
02. Data - Bilbao [Brecht-Weill]
03. Bauhaus - Third Uncle [Brian Eno]

06. A-ha - Crying in the Rain [The Everly Brothers]
07. Fun Boy Three - Summertime [Gershwin]
08. Humanoids on Parade - Drive My Car [The Beatles]
09. The Fast Set - Children of the Revolution [T. Rex]
10. Dalek I - You Really Got Me [The Kinks]

Link: https://mega.nz/folder/uxVi2bxS#FqRJAjK2LoYdclsHw_yZSA

Volume 08 - Adam Ant to Polyrock

01. Adam Ant - Hello, I Love You [The Doors]
02. Schleimer K - On the Road Again [Canned Heat]
03. Images in Vogue - Grapevine [Marvin Gaye]

Thank you very much, Paul, I appreciate the high marks from you :D

This time I'm on time and to close the second dozen, here are volumes 19 and 20. Missing Scientists cover is very cool, one of my faves, Sisters of Mercy's good, very imposing but a bit drawn out, there are quite a few minimal synth takes on classics which are, hmmm, different, Wang Bros is Tik from Shock/Tik & Tok, and Stephan Eicher went on from those humble beginnings to a superstar status in France. All in all, a varied but entertaining bunch.

01. Missing Scientists - Big City, Bright Lights [Dandy Livingstone]
02. The Damned - Alone Again or [Love]
03. The Sisters of Mercy - Gimme Shelter [The Rolling Stones]
04. Honey Bane - Baby Love [The Supremes]
05. Mood Six - I Saw the Light [Todd Rundgren]
06. Orange Juice - L.O.V.E. Love [Al Green]
07. Red Rockers - Eve of Destruction [Barry McGuire]
08. Beasts in Cages - My Coo Ca Choo [Alvin Stardust]
09. The News - Hole in My Shoe [Traffic]
10. Random Hold - We Can Work It out [The Beatles]

Link: https://mega.nz/folder/Hk0kiARY#bBRLAyR5I8tzh-lFGrob2w

Volume 20 - Vietnam Veterans to BB Gabor

01. Vietnam Veterans - The Days of Pearly Spencer [David McWilliams]
02. Stephen Eicher - Sweet Jane [The Velvet Underground]
03. Denial - California Dreaming [The Mamas & The Papas]
04. 39, Lyon Street - Kites [Simon Dupree & The Big Sound]
05. Bette Bright - Shoorah Shoorah [Betty Wright]
06. The Wang Bros - While My Guitar Gently Weeps [The Beatles]
07. Anna Domino - Land of My Dreams [Aretha Franklin]
