Blimey - full list (Smiths & Morrissey) is as follows:

A-Ha - The Sun Always Shines on TV
Al Jolson - Sonny Boy
Audrey Hepburn - Moon River
Bradford - Skin Storm
Cameo - Word Up *
Cilla Black - Work Is A Four-Letter Word
David Bowie - Drive-In Saturday
David Bowie - Heroes *
Elvis Presley - (Marie's The Name of) His Latest Flame
Elvis Presley - (Now and again there's) A Fool Such As I
Frank Sinatra - My Way
Gary Glitter - Rock 'n' Roll Part Two
Gilbert O'Sullivan - Nothing Rhymed
Herman's Hermits - East West
James - What's The World
Jimi Hendrix - Purple Haze
Johnny Tillotson - Send Me The Pillow You Dream On
Joni Mitchell - Hejira *
Magazine - A Song From Under The Floorboards
Marianne Faithfull - Summer Nights
Marianne Faithfull - The Sha La La Song
New York Dolls - Human Being
New York Dolls - Subway Train
New York Dolls - Trash
Patti Smith - Redondo Beach
Raymonde - No One Can Hold A Candle To You
Suede - My Insatiable One
The Cookies - I Want A Boy For My Birthday
The Jam - That's Entertainment
The Kinks - Harry Rag *
Timi Yuro - Interlude
T-Rex - Cosmic Dancer
Twinkle - Golden Lights
Wayne Fonanta & The Mindbenders - A Groovy Kind Of Love


Some of these were only snippets, some live, some soundchecked, but definitely done, apart from those asterisked, which, according to Simon Goddard (to whom I showed the list) are conjecture (although some claim to have heard the Marianne Faithfull songs). Having said that, Mark Taylor of Smiths Indeed fame swears that the Cameo song was done, so I'll take his word. I have all these originals.

Best Wishes,

Peter
