I think it might be case of just being so used to the originals- the original song and Frampton's own stuff, that it just sounds weird combined. Sort of like both were lesser than their parts when combined. It wasn't quite Peter Frampton, and it wasn't quite Jumping Jack Flash.
Meh- I'll quit being philosophical:
If you like covers, I can suggest the BBC Live Lounge:HereFlorence and the Machine- Halo (Beyonce original)
Or the Onion AV Club, doing a nice set of covers:Baths- All My Friends
You'll have to play around with the links for the AV Club to see all they have to offer. Very Indie- very hit and miss.
