This weekend I thought I'd dedicate our weekly jam session to some popular songs you may not know are actually covers. I'm going to admit something here too - For the most part I enjoy the originals better. Sue me!
Gloria Jones - "Tainted Love"
Oh what, this song isn't originally from the 80's? While we're all aware of The Supremes appearance in the 80's version, who knew the whole thing was a cover? I wanna jam out to this song so hard at next month's Benson Soul Night.
Linda Lyndell - "What a Man"
Same applies here as above - I wanna hear and dance to this next Soul Night!
Irma Thomas - "Time is on My Side"
Made famous by The Rolling Stones, Irma's version came out only a few years before theirs.
Slade! - "Cum on Feel the Noize"
OK so this one isn't actually too different from the version we all know, but I think I actually prefer this British hair band's version better?
Jeff Beck - "Superstitious"
Yep, I like the guitar intro better than Stevie's keyboard and it should come as no surprise I like the stone rock version better than the original.
