Music today was the Siouxsie and the Banshees covers album that shows how broad their tastes actually were, dispelling the myth that all the punk bands hated the indulgent past. It’s great to see unlikely songs like Roxy Music’s Sea Breezes (1972) in there and Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger and the Trinity‘s This Wheel’s On Fire (1968), Billie Holiday’s Strange Fruit (1939), The Doors’ You’re Lost Little Girl (1967), Kraftwerk’s Hall Of Mirrors (1977), Sparks’ This Town Ain’t Big Enough For The Both Of Us (1974), and even Trust In Me from The Jungle Book (1967).
