The original is a bit of an early 80's classic - turns out Juliana Hatfield released an entire album of ONJ covers (they sound pretty good) and more recently has an album of Police covers (not so good from the snippets I've heard imho) out too.

Juliana Hatfields cover


And of course ONJ's original

A reworking rather than a cover - Trojan Records released a Soul Power - Funky Kingston Comp which is all reggae covers of soul-classics -

Shark Wilson & The Basement Heaters - Make It Reggae


And the inspiration is of course - The One, The Only, Mr Please Please Please himself James Brown - Make it Funky

Paul Young covered Marvin Gayes' "Wherever I Lay My Hat" and made it his own. Marvin Gaye co-wrote the song and it was on the 'flip' side of "Too Busy Thinking 'Bout My Baby"
