    I admit to liking cheesy ballads. This is one such song. It's also a really bad video.



    A Europop cover. Images are from a movie the woman starred in.



    Another cover. Lana Del Rey has a distinctive voice.



    To the best of my knowledge, this song is only done live in concert.

    Must admit that I best like the Nancy & Lee Hazlewood version but also the Demis Roussos & Nancy Boyd version as well;

    That's the only version I've heard that wasn't an almost exact copy of the original.

    Here's another pop soft-rock piece by Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood. It was actually their only big hit recording.


    And here's one of the most over-the-top psychedelic rock versions of it, made by the undisputed kings of turning syrupy pop songs into proto-heavy metal.


    And then there's this unbelievable punk synth pop version.


    Here's a version I don't quite get.


    Here's one that got rejected at the local high school talent show. Or maybe it's a bad SNL sketch.


    There are others, but they only get worse. Which, I found hard to believe.

    The original, studio version, Deep Purple, Ritchie Blackmore wrote it and played guitar. Ian Gillian's voice should be registered as a weapon.

    Cover by Blackmore's Night, against with Ritchie Blackmore.

    An unbelievable cover.

    Well, yes and no. Devo's music is SUPPOSED to suck. That was the whole point of Devo. So, when they set out to do something that sucks, and they succeed at sucking, then do they really suck?

    One of the best blues bands ever, before they turned into a pop act with David Clayton Thomas replacing Al Kooper.



    Not a technically great recording, but it features one of the main psychedelic keyboard players from the 60's.



    Studio



    Live
