I Remember

Gawd, I love this song. The original being a heart-cracking minor key lament of histrionic proportions paired with the adorable voice of The Shangri-Las 16 year old Mary Weiss. It just doesn't ever get old. Even my kids have fallen in love with it and dropped it onto their 'Pods. 

Here's a more recent rendition getting a thumb's worth of Beck juice (that's the guitar wizard Jeff, not the Scientologist) giving some new buff to the old nugget. A Jeff Beck guitar solo ain't just a wank, it's an event and Irish singer Imelda May has the equipment to keep up. She throws out some chops here that could sucker punch Bruce Lee. Sweet meat, this is.

And the Shangs from 1964:
