Acceptable in the 80's...?

One cannot help wondering if this fascination/appreciation of the eighties has gone a little too far, when a band records a cover version of a Shakin’ Stevens track? However the music/sound of Swedish duo Cloetta Paris has an almost tongue-in-check novelty to it, so perhaps (hopefully) their cover version isn't meant to be taken too seriously? If you happen to be so fortunate to no longer being able to recall the original by Michael Baratt Shakin' Stevens, look no further than Youtube to find the video. But newcomers must be warned. Not everything in the eighties was great and certainly not every artist of the decade is worthy of a revival!

This Ole House was the first record I ever bought. 95 pence it cost me and I played it to death. I therefore have an attachment to dear old Shakey, bless 'im.
