Good Cover Version: Katy Goodman & Greta Morgan Do Gun Club

Pulp gave the world the song "Bad Cover Version." But seeing as I'm a sonic optimist, I'm of the belief that there's more likely than not more good cover versions floating around than bad ones. Good Cover Version celebrates the good, and leaves all that bad and ugly stuff alone.

I've already gushed a little about how lovely I think the combined talents of Katy Goodman and Greta Morgan are, but why stop there? I've fallen head over heels for their cover of the diabolical "Sex Beat" by Gun Club. The duo turned this skittering, overstimulated machismo song into something pretty, though perhaps sexier than the original. Now the song positively smolders, and who doesn't like a little simmering, come hither smolder?
