Right Now

Today's song is probably best know by people my age in it's 1983 interpretation by Siouxsie and Budgie as the Creatures which reached number 14 in the UK charts. I am told that there is a version by the Pussycat Dolls but thankfully I have not heard that one.

The tune was written twenty one years prior to the Creatures version by Herbie Mann and was originally an instrumental with lyrics added later that same year by Carl Sigman and became a hit for Mel Torme. The version posted is from 1969 and was included in Salena Jones album The Moment of Truth. I'm not quite sure whether I prefer this to Siouxsie's version or not but it is a cracking song.
