From 1990 and a revamped, re-release of this Bangles classic from 1985 to help promote the “Greatest Hits” album. (The Group had split the year earlier!) I prefer it as it’s a bit guitary and with modern dance beats and World Music samples, a fresher take remixed by Paul Schroeder.

I thought I’d sneak in a bawdy parody version by Spoof band, The Swinging Erudites. From 1987, it is as rude as the title suggests but is still very faithful to the Bangles original in terms of sound. Gotta love the deliberate tuneless whistling. It even has a “Big Weenie” remix mixed by Ali Lexa, not for the faint hearted!
