Martha and the Muffins Cover The English Beat

"Save it for Later" is one of those songs that gets covered a lot, but just about every cover is an absolute blast, so we're not complaining. The latest comes from Martha and the Muffins. They had originally recorded their version in three days for possible inclusion in the show Sex Education. The producers weren't keen on the idea, which left Martha and the Muffins without a home for their cover. It's a fun cover of a fun song. They keep it pretty faithful to the original, except for a few fun extra flourishes, and it's a little folkier than the New Wave original. It's almost like a bizarro Elvis Costello and the Attractions version of the song.

You can watch the video for Martha and the Muffins' version of "Save it for Later" below. The song will be included on the Popguru/Confidence Emperors Coverama compilation which is due out May 20. For more on Martha and the Muffins, check out the band's website.
