Cover versions open and close this week's show.
We kicked off with Frankie Rose's (almost) note perfect copy of The Cure's "A Forest". Always had a soft spot for the original since seeing it performed on Top Of The Pops with the drummer sitting in front of the group. Revolutionary stuff.
On a more sobering note, this recent take on a 41 year old song would equate to The Cure, back in 1980, covering the likes of Glenn Miller or Gene Autry.
And the Wiggles brought the curtain down by going slightly off-piste with Tame Impala's "Elephant." At least we think it's off-piste. We certainly don't remember the "fruit salad" refrain in the original song.
And on with the show...
