The Silver - Do you wanna dance

Silver: 'Do You Wanna Dance (JP: "Where can they possibly be now? Detained during Her Majesty's Pleasure, I think." 06 July 1991)

In summer 1991, Peel treated his audience to four shows focused on cover versions (although this didn't extend to the sessions). Suggestions from listeners had been canvassed during the run-up to the event.

On the third of the four programmes, Peel cited a God Bullies version of 'Tie A Yellow Ribbon' as a “demonstration of the near-perfect cover version – one that leaves the original lying bruised and tattered in the gutter.”
