After posting the ketty Lester song in the "Talk in song titles" thread, I replayed this.

Everyone knows the Soft cell version from 1981, but it isn;t too different to this original - from 1964!

.... and the very next is again the original, from 1967.... and considered by it's writer Cat Stevens, to be the best version.
PP Arnold was only 20, fresh out of Watts and an abusive marriage (with 2 chilldren aleady!) when she bought this song from Cat Stevens for £30. Cat Stevens recorded it himself 6 months later..... he was only 19 when he wrote it!


PP Arnold is still in the UK and still recording.....aged 73

I don't think much of what I remember will still exist! I left Southampton in '78 and have only popped back a few times since then..... Early 60's music covered a lot of bases..... and much got covered later with people not aware they were covers (I remember having to work hard to convince my cousin from LA that the Kinks weren't "new" in the late '70s!!) - here's a couple that might suprise you

25 years before George Harrison...

.... and 13 years before Blondie

Now I'm on to this: These guys played our old club before it burned down in 1990. They were good, except for the bass player, who was a Brit. He wanted to fight when he got pissed, and nobody likes that.
and then The Animals (Before They Were So Rudely Interrupted)
this song in particular, right now:
