It’s becoming quite popular to cover Billy Idol‘s “Eyes Without A Face” these days, and I’m quite OK with that. The Irish duo Electro Sensitive Behavior have given this track the synthpop treatment. While it sounds true to the original recording, the additional synths combined with a Lou Reed meets Peter Murphy vocal make this cover a keeper.
For comparison, here is another cool cover of this song by Marsheaux. This version is also synth heavy with a drive soundtrack influence.
What other songs can you think of that are covered often, and each version is every bit as interesting as the original?
