From the 1982 EP Trap Door, please enjoy T-Bone Burnett's remarkable take on Jules Styne's ode to conspicuous goldiggery (a/k/a The Judi Nathan Story) "Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend."
You know what to do -- just click on the play button and marvel.
T-Bone has claimed this was an attempt at a sort of Tommy James thing; myself, I hear more of a Tex-Mex Lou Reed, but in any event it's a genius version ("Let's rock!" in this context may be the most hilariously brilliant exhortation in the history of the music). As a scholarly note, I should mention that the vinyl version of this disappeared almost as fast as it was released; I had it on a cassette that eventually fell apart in the early 90s. "Diamonds" itself didn't show up on CD until 2000 and the soundtrack album to Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (with extraneous overdubbed applause) and it made its first official unsullied appearance on Sony's excellent two-disc T-Bone best-of Twenty Twenty in 2006.
Actually, I just found a link where you can download the entire original EP, which includes the even more amazing "A Ridiculous Man."
