Mr. Superlove is a cover of the Ass Ponys song. The Dark End Of The Street covers Percy Sledge. Little Girl Blue (Rodgers/Hart) from the musical Jumbo (1935; movie version 1962), originally sung by Gloria Grafton (movie version sung by Doris Day). The song was covered by countless other artists, and the Whigs might have used Diana Ross’ version as a template for theirs. My World Is Empty Without You/I Hear A Symphony covers the Supremes. What Jail Is Like taken from Gentlemen. * Released on several singles.
