Evie Sands

Spiritualized Any Way That You Want Me

From Evie Sands' original to a mannered, Shatner-esque cover to the Liverpool Five's Burden-like interpretation to Spiritualized's version (the one I'm most familiar with). British musicians tend to be such fanboys - Morrissey & Johnny Marr sought Sandie Shaw out to work with when the Smiths were still together, and Belle & Sebastien, the BMX Bandits and Spiritualized all proclaimed great love & adoration for Ms. Sands, also covering her. Animal Collective, though not British, had Vashti Bunyan, who is British, as a muse and collaborator.
