I like that old time rock 'n' roll, don't try to take me to a disco.

I love Wolf Alice's version of Wicked Game. Shame they haven't done a studio version, or played it live for like 5 years. The best recording is probably https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c93sMXXKyrY from Glastonbury 2014.

Queen Of Japan - I Was Made For Loving You i wouldn't thank you for hearing the original or any sight of Kiss but I do stick this on the TT occasionally and it's beeen in and out of my white lace trimmed wedding record box over the years.

I love Kiss and especially the disco tracks. “I’ll fight hell to hold you” is even better.

Rodrigo Gonzalez plays bass in one of Germany’s most successful bands, „Die Ärzte“ and guitar in German punk legend „Abwärts“. He also has many side projects like this where he will record songs just for fun. Combining the Kiss track with a Bee Gees disco sound was a match made in heaven...

Nico Teen - You Made me Realise (she spells it with a z though) creepy carousel organ cover.

Don't think I need to post the original.

Dagger Moth is a Jazzmaster-playing experimental guitarist from Italy. I'm a fan of her stuff, and she's just shared this very nice cover version of one off my favourite songs from Grant Hart's brilliant album "The Argument":

Fireflies - She's My Witch which was part of the Andrew Weatherall curated Moine Dubh singles club which a few OSGers discussed around release time. I dug this little slice of buff joy out after hearing it on Killing Eve.

and of course the mighty mighty quiver of shivers that is the original and IMO on of the very finest rockabilly sevens of all time.

Lonelády - Cries and Whispers. . A fine effort that I missed due to it being released into those digital only waters I don't usually dip a regular net in. Apparently it's 7 years old but just out because Movement has been re-released. Edit; after I bought it I then realised this was out ages ago on a New Order cover cover disc and I already had it. :D
