Song of the week

So, let's talk covers.

For those of you who don't know, Peter Gunn was a television series about a private detective.  It is famous more for it's awesome theme song than for the show itself.  It was covered by the Blues Brothers for their movie back in 1980 and then in '85 it was covered by The Art of Noise featuring Duane Eddie on guitar.

And if it was not for Duane Eddie's guitar work I think this would have been a disaster.

Admittedly this version is not for everyone, but I like it...

But not as much as the Blues Brother's cover.
