Inspired by reading a bunch of YouTube comments (yes, I KNOW how sad that is...)
In the mid-60's, there was a British band by the name of Spencer Davis Group. They had a string of hits, my personal favorite being "Gimme Some Lovin'."
Its not exactly a secret or anything, but there are actually two versions of the song; the original UK release, and an American release. The UK version is pretty straight forward, with no backing vocals whatsoever. The US release, however, features additional backing vocals, handclaps, and of course, cowbell.
I've been reading that a lot of people prefer the US version due to the added bells and whistles, and I have to say, that kinda drives me nuts. I way, way more enjoy the beautiful simplicity of the original UK release, and honestly can't stand the US version.
The question is, which do you prefer?
This has been a internet post about the Spencer Davis Group in the year 2010.
