Just saw a reference to this in an article and it struck me as something I once knew but had forgotten.. Anyway Joe "the games people play" South's original recording of Hush

Pretty obvious, I suppose but I just discovered The Tremeloes version is a cover

They do a decent live version. Those harmonies and falsetto could go horribly wrong

Heart & Soul. A hit for Huey Lewis & the news in 1983. Written by Chinn & Chapman. The amount of hits these guys wrote and or produced is incredible. (although Mike Chapman throws a lot of shade at Nicky Chinn's contribution to the songs) Any way it was originally recorded by exile in 1981. They had a hit with kiss you all over in 1978 (another Chinn & Chapman song)

Interesting. I didnt recognise this until the chorus kicked in. It's much heavier!

Exile are nothing without sexy dance Jimmy Stokley- who in no way looks like Paul Whitehouse in costume

I'm not someone who knows the Hysteria album especially well but I'd listened it this song a bunch of times without ever copping that it is (quite obviously) a James Brown thing

Knew it was a JB tune but never checked out the original - great tune whoever is singing.
cheers Lili. my knowledge of JB is a bit embarrassing.
