Not until now, the thing that made the song great is her voice, and honestly if you are going to do a cover, you should make it your own, theirs is a remarkably faithful version.

Speaking of 'where are they now', there is also the Swinging Erudites

I thoroughly enjoyed the 80's, partied my brains out, made a fair amount of money, and managed to not kill myself, but all things considered, I'm glad they are over.

The music was kind of lame, but U2 and P. Gabriel saved it.
