Remaking a good song (until you get it right)

July 6, 2008

Here’s the original(1966):

Otis Redding took a stab at it(1967):

David Bowie loved it too(1974)

And that bitch Cher always thinks she knows better(1976):

Then along comes Amii and she makes it into one of the best songs in the world!(1979)
