Fuck My Hat! I Never Knew That!

I thought Soft Cell did the original. But apparently it was Gloria Jones in 1964.

Well gor blimey, guvnahh! Next you'll be telling us that Phil Collins didn't do the original of "You Can't Hurry Love"....

What do you make of the Marilyn Manson and *shudder* Rihanna covers?
