Nice version but the Brenda Holloway original takes some beating.

Be your age Tyrone you'll be saying Boris Johnson tells no lies next!

I heard Bruce Johnston's I write the songs for the first time a few days ago. I think David Cassidy recorded it first so can it count as a cover version even though he wrote it?

Can we have a thread for worst covers, if so this will win, much as I am a fan, but ugh.

 


Sex and Money are like Oxygen

They're not important until you're not getting enough.

Make your own mind up, I know which I like the best, Buster.

Much much as I liked " The Drifters " a Liverpool band called " The Crying Shames " did the best version. That's probably where Elvis Costello got it from.

Yep that would be my guess too but theirs does sound a bit dated but good.

I saw The Crying Shames once at my local fire station/dance hall. They were about 2 or 3 numbers into their set when all of a sudden they stopped playing and started packing away their equipment !   I was stood near the front, by the stage, once I looked around there was a mass brawl going on behind me.  I suppose they had a contract that allowed them to bail out in the event of trouble.

What the brawl was all about I never did find out.
