As I don't still don't know how they didn't dominate the charts worldwide (even despite Patrick Fitzgerald being openly homosexual), someone could easily hit #1 with one of their songs...from "Come on Now" (some modern-rock band like Puddle of Mudd could cover it, not that I'd want to hear the abomination) to "The 1001st Fault" (which would be so great for an emo group).

Some R&B queen should do a cover of ESG's "Moody", too.

Franz Ferdinand's cover of ABC's "Poison Arrow" was #1 for 16 weeks in the fall/winter of 2005.

Now that's genius.

"No One's Little Girl" is ripe for a smooth R&B retranslation - I can fully get on board with that.

Oh. My. God. I was just about to say Fountains Of Wayne "Calling All Girls" but someone beat me to it, last year. It really is kind of obvious, and I have no idea what's stopping them.

Must say that "Hounds of Love" wouldn't be my first choice.
