Flavorwire list the best 10 Smiths songs covered by female artists

How Soon Is Now? by Love Spit Love is a very good cover
Kirsty Maccoll's version of "You Just Haven't Earned It Yet, Baby" from the 'She's Having A Baby' Movie Soundtrack.
Unwoman kicks "I Know It's Over" on the cello!

Sandie Shaw's version of "Jeane". No doubt helped by the fact it features Morrissey and Marr, it betters the original for me.

The person who compiled this list really f***ed up in not including The Dum Dum Girls version of "There is a Light..."

I thought "Where are the Dum Dum Girls?" too! The best one out there! And Morrissey wrote that song for Nancy, right? Not really a cover...

that Dum Dum Girls cover (which ive not ever heard before now) is far better than anything on that list.

Surely, 'Let Me Kiss You' was written for Nancy Sinatra, so it is the case that Morrissey covered a Nancy Sinatra track, not the other way around?
