One song to the Style of Another

The Puppini Sisters are a trio of singers who do 1940s close harmonies a la Andrews Sisters or the wartime British equivalent whose name I've forgotten. They do the usual suspects, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, In the Mood, Mr Sandman - blah de blah. Quite well I think. Their party pieces seem to be style-shifted contemporary songs - Blondie's Heart of Glass and Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights among them. Here is the latter (no video, unsurprisingly the studio recording is much tighter than any live I've found):

I hope they eventually do a version of Hey Joe:
"I gave her the gun, I SHOT her - ba da-da dweee-aaa"
