    Very nice. Sounds like a old-fashioned country song then you start catching words like "asshole" and "sushi". Lovely when it gets all instrumenty about three and a half minutes in.

    I have that on CD and there's more cover versions on it then I thought, including a 21 minutes cover of Smokey Robinson's "Get Ready" (I'm on my way, but not really in a hurry to get there - or so it seems).
    Should we call this funk-rock?

    "Rare Earth - Motown's funkiest white band"

    "Rare Earth’s music straddles genres and defies categorisation, slipping seamlessly between the two seemingly disparate worlds of classic rock and R&B. This careful balancing act is a rarity even now and was a near impossibility in the colour-segregated 60s when Rare Earth began their journey. Groundbreakers and pioneers, this post-racial band should have been the first of many. Instead, they remained one of a kind."

    I didn't know they were so rare.

    It's not easy to cover the Bee Gees but their version of Warm Ride is even better than the original.

    I hadn't heard either version before but I think you might be right.

    I never heard of the band "Rare Earth" but it's a great cover version, but i do like both versions to be honest. ;)
