Them`s version of "Gloria" by Van Morrison is so well known these days, it may be hard to believe it took this version by The Shadows of Knight to break through to the US market. The song is so good that even a relatively lame cover version holds up pretty well. The cover was contrived to "clean up" the horny urgency of the original so it wouldn`t be banned by some radio stations, notably WLS in Chicago. As you can hear in the samples, a key lyric was changed from "She comes to my room" to "She calls out my name."

I`ve slotted this song when it was originally released as a single and famously bombed on the U.S. charts but reached #3 in the U.K. Phil Spector recorded an entire album with Tina Turner vocals in 1966 and released it that September but it didn`t reach much of an audience until re-released in fall 1969 on the A & M label. Since then the song has been often covered and received much acclaim.

I`ve chosen to spell the name of this song with a comma. It was first released and appeared on pop charts as "Hold On! I`m Comin`." A fuss about sexual connotation led to later releases of the single as "Hold On! I`m A-Comin`." The comma first appeared on the cover of the album of this name. Today iTunes uses no punctuation except the final apostrophe.

Respect

Time: 2:23
Sequenced by: single
Honored by: RS DM DG
 
Otis Redding`s original version of "Respect," a plea from a traveling man for his woman to treat him right "when I come home," is a top-drawer Stax-Volt song with a typically strong arrangement and vocal. However, as Redding famously said, "that little girl done stole it from me." Aretha Franklin`s cover, with an even better arrangement, a few pointed changes in lyrics, and a bravura vocal performance, achieved one of the great pop recordings of the century. Often called a feminist anthem, Aretha isn`t pleading for respect, she`s declaring and demanding what she deserves, including sexual satisfaction.
 
Sample 1: Respect - Aretha Franklin
 
Sample 2: Respect - Otis Redding

For American listeners making their own playlists, both stereo and mono 2009 remastered CD sources need an edit after 5:04 to remove the other sound effects that ended the UK releases but not the US releases. The 1967-1970 [2010 remaster] version has both a clean introduction and US-appropriate ending.

Elvis Costello covered this Sam & Dave version on his "Get Happy!!" LP and also released the song as a single. Costello`s version is fast and urgent, while the original is a great slow burner in the inimitable Sam & Dave style which never appeared on an album until the CD reissue era. Listeners might be excused if they didn`t recognize that these are two versions of the same song, so great is Costello`s transformation of the mood and arrangement of the original. Although cover versions are often put down as pale imitations, each of these is a standout recording on its own terms.
