Covers better than the originals - Part 1 (Lost, draft post from 2010)

Greg Kihn Band - Jeopardy vs. Weird Al Yankovic - I Lost On Jeopardy

WA - lyrics are better and go somewhere, mimics the original production perfectly?
The sort of monotonous groove seems more fitting to the lyric subject matter.  losing, bored.

GK - great groove, but the lyrics are kind of forgettable other than the chorus.  even with that, it doesn't SOUND like his love's in jeopardy.  he seems matter-of-fact about it.
