Cover versions of existing songs have been around almost as long as the songs themselves and are nothing new. A very few cover versions go on to become the classics for that song: witness many cover versions by Ray Charles or Johnny Mathis, to name a few. One of the most famous "cover classics" is probably the version of âUnchained Melodyâ by Bobby Hatfield of the Righteous Brothers. So it was with some trepidation that I clicked on this link provided by one of my brothers (whoâs a session musician), with the remark to just ââave an âearâoleâ. Itâs actually a cover of the Stylistics number âYou make me feel brand newâ, and anybody knows that the Stylistics were/are such an absolute class act that theyâd be/are very hard indeed to follow. But this is a really quite extraordinary live version sung by Micky Hucknall of Simply Red. Why he even attempted such a difficult song using only one voice Iâve no idea, but I personally would say he successfully pulls off a very decent âequalâ (at the very least) with the Stylistics original version. However, judge for yourselves: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sCwbMQANnNs Enjoy!
