Does a genderswapped cover of Edwyn Collins' "A Girl Like You" exist?

(Crossposted to whatwasthatsong.)

Also popularly known as "Never Met a Girl Like You Before", famously used in Lucifer and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, and often misattributed to Iggy Pop or David Bowie:


Does any cover exist that phrases it as "A Guy Like You"? Ideally sung by a man and with a driving rock beat and psychedelic guitar similar to the original? (I know--I'm probably asking for toasted snow.)

(Vanessa Brown's "Crazy Amazing" contains the phrase, but is a completely unrelated song with a cute bubblegum flavor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gf4ZIVQ7cpE)

(Edited to correct the YouTube link, which led to something unrelated but relevant to the second Weirdness post.)
