Help Needed: Duran Covers Others!

I’m sure that many of you are aware that I am responsible for the daily question.  Over the years, I have asked about many different Duran Duran related questions.  Some of them include:  Favorite song, Favorite album, Favorite song on each album, Favorite b-side, Favorite piece of merchandise, Favorite video, Favorite album cover, Favorite side project, Favorite song from each side/solo project, Favorite pictures of individual members and group, and more.  Lately, I have focused the questions on the setlist after it became a very frequent topic among fans.  I’m reaching the end of that set of questions.  Thus, I need and want to move on.

In thinking about the questions I have asked about, I decided that it would be fun to talk about songs that Duran Duran has covered.  (By the way, if you have a suggestion for a set of questions for the question of the day, do let me know!  I’m sure that many of you are more creative than I am).  Anyway, back to the next set of questions, Duran Duran has covered a LOT of songs over the course of their career.  Some of these songs were featured on Thank You, the album of all covers.  Others were on singles while some were only played live.

I have come up with an initial list of songs that I know that Duran Duran has covered at some point.  Here’s the thing.  I’m SURE that I’m missing many of them.  Thus, I need your help to complete the list of songs Duran has covered.  Here is what I have so far, in alphabetical order:

Ball of Confusion
Boys Keep Swinging
Come Up and See Me (Make Me Smile)
Crystal Ship
Diamond Dogs
Femme Fatale
Gimme Some Truth
Good Times
Groove Is In the Heart
The House of the Rising Sun
If She Knew What She Wants
Instant Karma
I Feel Love
I Wanna Take You Higher
I Wanna Take You Higher Again
Lay Lady Lay
Love Me Tender
Needle and the Damage Done
911 Is a Joke
Perfect Day
Poker Face
Psycho Killer
Rebel Rebel
Space Oddity
Sweet Jane
The Message
Thank You
Virginia Plain
Watching the Detectives
We Are Family
When I Was a Little Boy
White Lines

What songs did I miss?  On top of that, I would love to know when Duran Duran covered the songs.  It gives me a chance to try to search for them online because I would love to be able to link to them so that others who might not have heard those covers can.  It makes for better voting, too.  So, will all of you help me out?  What songs did Duran Duran cover that I missed???  Thank you in advance.
