Shinehead feat. Sting - Jamaican in New York (1992) though I prefer the original version (moving all of the 70s & 90s stuff from the other thread)

Michael Jackson - Rock with You (1979)
... though for me, the absolute best version is from the late South African trumpet player Hugh Masekela. Don't get me wrong, Quincy Jones arrangements on the album this was taken from are top notch (as always).

Gary Moore - Parisianne Walkways (1979)
Trottoir is a male type name, so it ought to be "Parisiens Walkways" but anyway. Song was often aired on radio during the late 90s.

Just found the song posted on YT (by Sony Music community manager, who would have thought ?), so here it is. So much better than MJ / QJ version it's not even fair, wouldn't you agree ? That album 'Beatin' around de bush' (double entendre) was released in 1992. Also, Miriam Makeba from Pata Pata fame was Hugh ex-wife in case some of you ignored that bit of trivia.

Two more songs :

Billy Ray Cirus - Achy Breaky Heart (1993)

Héroes Del Silencio - Entre dos tierras (1990)

U2 feat. David Howell Evans aka the Edge - Numb (1993), not a huge fan of U2 myself, except with the Joshua Tree, they never really were hitting top gear, it's a bit sad they gave up on rock music that way, in a snap so to speak.

Nick Kamen - I Promised Myself (1990, the vastly superior radio edit)
