Both versions are good, but Gwen Stefani doesn't hold a candle to Mark Hollis IMO, but to each their own.

No way, the original is better IMO.

Correct. No Doubt's version also doesn't have that required 80s sound either.

Speaking of Talk Talk, I like this cover of their song “Life is What You Make It”

Woodstock 2 was also an excellent album, but it gets little play now: Boogie!



As usual, Canned Heat kick ass!

She had too much clothes on (there are may be better instances of the clip but they are restricted to teenagers, "men in their prime", only):

I always took it as a sexual meaning. I don't think Melanie would ever admit it because the song would lose it's innocence.

"The song has always been seen as a metaphor for sex. Its seemingly innocent tale of a young girl who needs a key for her roller skates can easily be read as a girl making a bold sexual overture to a (perhaps shy) boy she likes."
