Here's an interesting cover of "Good Vibrations" by Psychic TV. Lead singer Genesis P-Orridge adds a curious spoken section at 3:47:

"Words are falling over us 
Time cascading down
And I see you slithering
Like a snake in a golden crown
[Next bit incomprehensible]
Around the black line with eyes that shine
And I am old and I am young 
Waiting to belong"

What a great cover! I like how it's different and in a cool style---with their own added words/parts. I'll have to show it to my dad when he's back from holiday.

Cheers for sharing, John!

Looking through the list of often obscure albums drawn up by my blogger friend (which I've taken upon myself to correct), I found this interesting version of "Don't Worry Baby" by The Fun and Games from their 1968 album Elephant Candy. Most curiously, the massed vocal harmonies of the slow intro give way to the loping main body of the song, which is sung in single lines only. But it works!

I think this uproarious cover of "Kokomo" was posted on the previous Bored. Anyway, hang onto your hats because here it comes again.

How about this brilliant a cappella version of "I Get Around" by The King's Men (of King's College Cambridge)?

Couple of stupendous ones today. First, "The Lord's Prayer" by (ahem) The Academic Thugs...

...and second, the next Mike Godette classic cover, this time of another BW a cappella gem, "Our Prayer":
