I love the Walker Brothers' version of LAYH, a real lost hit...

The Vogues' "5 O'Clock World" was used as the theme to "The Drew Carey Show" in the US for a few seasons in the 90's. Julian Cope did a cover version on his album "My Nation Underground" (1988) that was released as a single but didn't chart, which cunningly incorporated a chorus from Petula Clark's "I Know A Place", written by Tony Hatch. Interestingly, the original B-side of the Vogues' single was "Call Me", written by... Tony Hatch!
Glad you've mentioned Petula, here's her French language cover of a Lee Dorsey song:-
