just ran across the party band Volga-Volga; most of their repertoire is a pastiche of russian pop, but some of it shades into western standards as well, eg:

the lyrics may be Maxime's « Знаешь ли ты », the style balkanized, but the music is clearly a western "classic", or

(a well celebrated "Hava Nagila"), or their punked out extended dance version of "Titanic":

OK, that last was pretty weak. They do much better when covering eastern european party tunes such as "American Boy" ... but that's unlikely to mean much unless one is familiar with both the early 90's original (by a group we've seen here before, Комбинатция) and its various extant pastiches...
