96 Tears  performed by Big Maybelle  1967
Recommended by tinks [profile]

Searing r&b cover of the ? & the Mysterians classic. Maybelle almost sounds like she singing this about somebody else, and like she's amused by the pain she's caused. I know it's been comped a number of times, but I'm not sure of where.

from the single 96 Tears (Rojac 112)

96 tears  performed by ? and the Mysterions  1967
Recommended by n-jeff [profile]

The greatest pop song of all time. Without a doubt. I heard this on the radio at about midnight one day in 1979, it took me 10 years to get a copy and that was a bootleg (I know its always been about in the US, but it was impossible to get here).





  02 May 01 ·tinks: it is indeed, one of the greatest songs ever produced...and some of the covers are just as good! check out big maybelle's (which i've recommended), jimmy ruffin's (temptation david's brother) or aretha franklin's (from her 1st atlantic lp).
  28 Feb 02 ·G400 Custom: ...but don't check out the Stranglers' very weedy cover from 1990, by which time they'd lost it completely.
