Here is a song that I think is ripe for covering by somebody who could give it some balls. I'm not sure who it should be that covers it but in my head there is a much better version than any that I have actually heard.
Please Stay was written by Burt Bacharach and was originally recorded by The Drifters and has been covered by the likes of Lulu, Marc Almond and Dionne Warwick. But is probably best known this side of the Atlantic as a 1966 hit for The Crying Shames, their only hit incidently which features here. But I'm not sure that even that version does this song justice, well not in my head anyway. Peter Kember did a very wishy washy version in 1992 under his Spectrum guise.
Any suggestions as to who you think could give this song a belter of a remake would be welcomed.
