Kids, Incorporated was the teeth-rotting children's TV show from the '80s and '90s that's now known for launching the careers of Martika, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Fergie. The premise of the show was simple: kids played in a band, which lead to them covering popular songs of the time in between more traditional skits. And look what I found: The posse covering Marshall Crenshaw's "Someday, Someway" in 1985. Be thankful I didn't post the Cure cover, trust. Fergie Ferg's in the background of this clip; Marshall's at Off Broadway tonight.
Apparently this song was mad popular with performing TV shows in the '80s, because here's a version from Fame (which is actually pretty good).
