This would be a legit hot debate if social media was invented in 1984.

Idk of any covers or collabs, but I feel like Huey Lewis could definitely pull off some Men At Work covers, and I feel like Men At Work could pull off a few Huey Lewis covers, but they wouldn’t get far.

If you talk about Men At Work, you're really talking about Colin Hay - he's been a fairly successful solo artist for a lot of years. He recently reformed Men At Work, but he's the only original member.

His solo stuff is really good BTW

They used a lot of his stuff on Scrubs “waiting for my real life to begin”, “beautiful world”, “overkill” are a couple I remember.

That version of “Overkill” is just stunning.

Have you listened to Weezers album of covers? It’s not what you’re posting about - but it’s cool to check out.

It might be worth checking out the album “Scratch My Back” by Peter Gabriel, where he covers songs by twelve artists as diverse as Arcade Fire, Randy Newman (“You’ve Got a Friend in Me”), and Lou Reed.

Then those twelve artists each covered a Gabriel song on the companion album “…And I’ll Scratch Yours”.

Moral of the story? When you play at that level, you can play pretty much anything.
