which is better?
The original:I must admit I knew the cover first. The original is too soft and ethereal for me. It seems like it just kind of drifts into the either. Eddie Kendricks delivery is that of a guy who is wishful and somewhat sad. I find the strings overblown and distracting.
The Temptations "Just My Imagination"
Included on the Rolling Stones' excellent "Some Girls" album. The boys really give the song a kick.
Mick's delivery is more defiant than the original.
The boys add a bit of a country flavor to it.
Bill Wyman really propels the song along with his bassline.
I like how they speed up the song towards the end.
The Rolling Stones "Just My Imagination"
My Winner: the cover!
