British-born New York-based DJ Mark Ronson's second album, "Version 2", has a cover of "Stop Me If You Think That You've Heard This One Before", featuring Daniel Merriweather. You can hear it at The segueing with The Supremes' "You Just Keep Me Hangin' On" is just one of many remarkable points on this excellently wistful version. The album also features a cover of the Kaiser Chief's "Oh My God" featuring Brits nominee (aka non-winner) Lily Allen. It is released in the UK on 17 April 2007.

  • another poor attempt, silly sausage farmers. Don't people know that such great music was never meant to have the lyric "ooh yeah" at the end of the verse. I am surprised there was no "Baby Baby Yeah Yeeeah" thrown in there as well. Not as sickening as the My Chemical Romance cover of Jack The Ripper, but certainly not for my taste. Who is going to take the next crack, KC and JO JO? Heaven knows im miserable now!

  • Hate the singing and the merging of Supremes, although I love the Supremes and The Smiths. Hate the drums, but LOVE the rest of the music. Especially what i am assuming is violin.

  • bringing the music of the smiths to a whole new audience. I could see someone who did not know the smiths, hearing this and asking who is the original artist and then checking them out. I would buy this if I could.

  • about 4'30" he mixes Musical Youth (MC intro to "Pass the Dutchie") over the (original) Smiths "Stop Me..." ... sublime - and via as many versions of 'Hey Jude' as you might want, as well as various versions of 'Pinball Wizard', 'The Only One I Know', 'Venus', 'Tears of a Clown' etc.

    The music this DJ constantly plays says something to me about my life.

  • So I've seen some conflicting info on the web; some sources say this guy's Mick Ronson's son (as well as Mick Jones from Foreigner's stepson). I can't confirm this...anyone know for sure? It would be an interesting trajectory; like production is a genetic trait. Plus, this guy looks a little like Mick Ronson.

  • I can't believe there's so many clueless idiot's actually on a morrissey website.

    This is one of the shittest covers I’ve ever heard in my life, I can’t believe shit like that can actually get released, I can’t believe people can be this clueless.

    Do any fo you idiot’s actually have any idea what this song is about? It completley misses the whole point and meaning of the song.

    This wankers vocal completely srtips all the irny and intelligence from the lyrics and just leaves a stinking souless RnB turd.

    God I hate you, I hate you so much Ronson you fucking gimp, I hope you fucking die you clueless cunt.
