    What about the "Come on Baby Light My Fire", Horace Andy/Massive
    Attack on "Protection" Ella on one of the Blue Breaks comps (2 I
    think). And, I think there's a version by Shirley Bassey.
    JTQ do "Starsky and Hutch Theme", "A Whole Lotta Love" (Zepplin)
    And, my favorite is Sun Ra and his Arkestra doing "Pink Elephants on
    Parade" (Dumbo), on the Disney compilation "Stay Awake".
    Can't think of more recent stuff.
