Re: Good Cover Versions

The Runaways. Vixen. And I don't know how far back you want to go, or how wide a net to cast, but there were a lot of Motown girl groups.

I finally looked it up, and "Ray Donovan" is...the name of a TV show? Not what I expected.
Never heard of it, but apparently it's been around for five seasons. Why were you looking it up?

I haven't made a deep study of the man, but from what I hear, he doesn't even realize the world doesn't cease to exist because he closes his eyes.
