Covering the 80s, Part I

Inspired by finding a new Belle and Sebastian cover of the Primitives last week, I thought it would be fun to pick my six most favorite 80s song covers this week. The covers were done as soon as three months afterward and as long as thirty years hence.

My FRIDAY COVER SONG PICK OF THE DAY goes to The Futureheads, who perform Hounds of Love, track #14 on The Futureheads (Sire, July 2004).

The original, of course, is from from Kate Bush, the second track on Hounds of Love (EMI, September 1985).
