Yours is a relatively extensive list, especially when combined with the
additions of the other list members. However, unless I am blind as the
proverbial bat, the most recent cover I have heard from Pat was missed. On the
latest Love Bus, Pat covers "Do You Wanna Dance?". I don't know who did the
original, but I remember the Ramones also did a cover of this back in the 70's.
I tend to prefer the Ramones' version over Pat's, as Pat sort of sucked the life
out of that song, much like the proverbial bat would (no intended reference to
"Interview with the Vampire", the neo-gothic American rage that passes for
literature and fine-filmmaking). Sorry, Pat, but that song should have been
left alone.
