This might have been endlessly wanked on about on 'the blogosphere' when it came out (which was a few months ago) but it only came to our attention today that Suzi Quatro — in many ways the Sky Ferreira of her day — only went and covered Goldfrapp's 'Strict Machine' on her last album. And if you're thinking, 'well it's not that much of a stretch, it sounded like a Suzi Quatro song to start with', she's really 'done a number' on it here.[youtube]xnz1oUDEy1Y[/youtube]
The same album also includes a rather less successful cover of Rihanna's 'Breaking Dishes' (?!).[youtube]WmoHONgzR7I[/youtube]
Suzi Quatro. Much like God, she gives with one hand then takes away with the other. But there the God comparisons must end.
