In 1986, "Funkytown" was covered by Australian band Pseudo Echo, who gave the song a different sound, with a guitar solo in the middle of their version. Pseudo Echo's version spent seven weeks at no. 1 in Australia (Lipps Inc.'s was at no. 1 for only two weeks in Australia), and was also a no. 6 US hit in July of the following year, and in August a no. 1 hit in Canada. Mirroring Lipps Inc's experience, Pseudo Echo's version was that group's only US Top 40 hit.
