The original, although it could be argued that this is such a blatant rip off of Clothes Line by Boogaloo & His Gallant Crew, that this should also be considered a cover version with a different title, however much Leiber & Stoller might like to claim the full writing credit.
The Coasters ... Shopping For Clothes
(1960)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XetJMlt3-l4

The cover version:
Snatch ... Shopping For Clothes
(1980)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0khWEV2TgoQ

and for anyone who doesn't know it the original original:
Boogaloo & His Gallant Crew ... Clothes Line
(1956)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkTlTLxlGx0

Chosen this one mainly because it seems so unlikely that a band from Moscow would have even heard this song, let alone covered it.

The original:
The A-Lines ... Four
(2005)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8OLMWuVA50

The cover version:
Hell O Hill ... Four
(2007)
