To Love Somebody

When ripping this version of  probably my favourite Bee Gees song I checked my iTunes first to see if I had already uploaded the song and was surprised to find that I had a further ten versions of the song by people as diverse as Sunday's Child to Primal Scream, yes the Scream version is every bit as dreadful as you are probably thinking, Bobby G's vocal being particularly woeful. So I suspect that there is a lot of love out their for this track.

The Mirettes have featured here before with the single that followed today's 1968 offering. The vocal group were the Ikettes until they changed their name after they left Ike and Tina Turner to strike out on their own but were not allowed to keep the name.

Primal Scream's version isn't great. My favourite one is Nina Simone's.

Nice version. Nina's is hard to beat, but I've always liked this one too.
