Ball of Confusion (6:17)

Cover of Seventh Dream of Teenage Heaven

From Seventh Dream of Teenage Heaven and 24 other releases

Cover of the Temptations classic from 1970. Astoundingly, for a white-bread ’80s minimalist operation, the band matches the power of the original. Seemingly like every other cover, the Rockets feel the need to change the line “the Beatles’ new record’s a gas,” in this case to say that the “Rockets’” new record is — dumb when so many other lines in the song are period specific (“cities aflame in the summer time,” among a dozen others). Still, recommended.
