i went to see this weird finnish band called 'eläkeläiset' (="pensioners") the other week. they play only cover songs and everything in the style of humppa or jenkka (traditional finnish dances, a bit like polka).
they played a version of 'friday i'm in love' - in their own genuine humppa style:

perjantaina humpassa (="on friday at the humppa dances")

:-D

Brilliant!!! Now I wish that Gogol Bordello will make some covers on Cure. They could do Mint Car or Just like Heaven.

Thanx for sharing this tune.
again and again and again and again and again and...
