Hello, kittens & dawgs! Holy cow, it’s a brand new month! That adorable little rodent, Punxatony Phil, will make his annual forecast tomorrow. For his sake, I hope he does NOT see his shadow. Regardless of what Phil has to say, I will make the best of the gloomy days of winter with the happiness that music gives.
Inspiration for today came from this past Monday’s music feature of Herman’s Hermits. I wish Peter Noone stopped by for a dance, but he didn’t. *sigh* Anyway, during the height of the British invasion, Herman’s Hermits made Gerry Goffin and Carole King’s song I’m Into Something Good famous. What I found interesting is it was originally recorded by Earl Jean Cookies’ member in 1964. Slap my face and call me Sally. I thought Herman’s Hermit did the original. What a surprise!
Naturally, I grew up listening to Herman’s Hermits cover, so it’s automatically out of the running for the band showdown. After all, part of the fun is to see if someone else does as good as or better than the original (or popular) artist. So, I decided to see who else did this song.
I found only a handful of artists did I’m Into Something Good and only two artists who did it in recent years. It’s Marianne Faithful against The Bird and The Bees in today’s BOTB. Who will win? Only you can decide. So, listen and vote!
In 2002 Marianne Faithful did the cover for her album Kissin Time
The Bird and The Bee released their cover in 2010, as a single and later included in the soundtrack for the motion picture Valentine’s Day.
Hopefully, my little survey form will work beautifully with making it easier for me to get the results. You can still tell us why you like your chosen artist the best in comments and if not the survey doesn’t work properly, then add your vote in comments like usual. One more option, I want to offer is this, If you think there is no clear winner for whatever reason, then say so and let me know what you think about including this an option in my next showdown. Sometimes this is the way I feel when I listen to a cover and wish afterward that I declared no contest/winner.
