Best Covers: Echo & The Bunnymen ‘People Are Strange’

Carrying on the theme of  Echo & The Bunnymen providing tracks for Vampire related media and their propensity for delivering incredible covers, this take on The Doors single from 1967 suggests that McCulloch could easily have stood in for Jim Morrison on the band’s 2002 reformation, a part filled byThe Doorss Ian Astbury. This cover gained the band further cult status by association with movie fans and remains a classic late 80s cut.  Revel in the fuzzy VHS quality of the MTV clip.
