We hear the playback and it seems so long ago.

The latin CD Jazz and '80s might not be the easiest thing to get a hold of at your local record shop, but eBay seems to have quite a few. Check out these tracks to see if these smooth reworkings are up your alley:

  • Dinah Eastwood "Hungry Like the Wolf" (Duran Duran cover)
  • Jamie Lancaster "Boys Don't Cry" (Cure cover)
  • Sawa Kobayashi "Patience" (Guns N' Roses cover)

    And while I'm on a hard-to-find foreign '80s comp kick, here are a few non-jazz tracks from the Japanese CD, Fine Time: A Tribute to New Wave, Vol. 1:

  • Convex Level "Video Killed the Radio Star" (Buggles cover)
  • Yasuyuki Okamura "Burning Down the House" (Talking Heads cover)
  • Polysics "Memorabilia" (Soft Cell cover)
