Interestingly, this is a cover by Manfred Mann of the song originally recorded by The Exciters. Obviously, this is very much and without question the definitive version.
Ditto for Good Loving by The Young Rascals, which was pretty much the same arrangement as the version recorded by The Originals, who changed the words from the original recording by Lemme B. Good.

The Exciters had several hits including "A Little Bit of Soap" and "Tell Him". The Originals song is titled "Good Loving is Just a Dime Away" and it is credited to Lamont Dozier, and released in 1975. The Young Rascals song titled "Good Lovin' " was released in 1966 and is credited to Rudy Clark and Authur Resnick. Lemme B. Good released a version in 1965 that was quite similar, as did The Olympics. At some point the Dave Clark Five also covered the song. Quite a history as with so many songs. Interesting as you said, interesting for sure.

Took a little bit of digging to find that one? ;)

I actually have that song on an IRS Records compilation CD called "These People are Nuts!"
There was a DJ in Pittsburgh that used to play this tune for laughs. I still remember it!

There is an older version of this song out there, but Creedence's version is pretty good.

Roy Orbison did the original version, I think.

Yes, I know. Another music thread but as I was working away at my desk, this song came over the web radio station I was listening to and I thought this might be a fun off topic thread for our music gurus to chew on.
Ah! Any Weird Al Yankovic song? OK, Let's go with Little Richard's Tutti Frutti.
