  1. The very early Moody Blues also did a cover of this song. I didn’t know the Stones and Hollies did as well. I enjoyed listening to those versions. Then, I searched for the Jones-Paycheck version, and that one is not my taste. But they did their own thing with it, which is cool.

    • When I saw Jones-Paycheck did it I found that odd- yes I agree that one isn’t the best version! Its funny how some of those songs are covered by a wide variety of artists. Will look up the Moody Blues version.
