Heart changed the lyrics so their version was about a woman picking up a hitchhiker on order to get pregnant. They don't play it live anymore.

Covered by Take That in the 90's



Dan Hartman also had a big hit in the 80's, I can dream about you.
He also wrote & produced love sensation for Loletta Holloway.
The accapella version was sampled by Black box for Ride on time & Good vibrations by Marky Mark & the funky bunch. Can't forget the funky bunch.

Tom Robinson is doing a whole show about this topic right now. Well covers and interesting samples.

Revelations so far: Fuel My Fire by The Prodigy is actually a cover.
Step On is a cover. I mean I knew that but I thought everyone knew that. It seems to be twisting a few melons man.

I have the John Kongos original on a compilation. In the liner notes they say something like " the Happy Mondays added a few twisting my melon man, to it and had a huge hit" In fairness to the Mondays & their producers, they did a bit more than that. They totally reworked it & refined it into an indie dance classic.
