Did you know this song was originally written for and performed by Nina Simone in 1964? She belts out the song as a bluesy ballad in a way only she can. The more well-known version was covered by The Animals in 1965 and reached No. 3 on the UK Singles Charts, No. 15 in the US. Over the years, many artists have covered this classic. My personal favorite cover is by Lana Del Rey. She’s one of my favorite artists, her records are played on Charlotte quite often! I’d love to hear your thoughts on these three! Which version do you like best?
