The Song That Got Away (5)

The Drafts folder is getting clearer, bit by bit.

I thought I’d share a twisty one today, though. It’s a song I always liked but figure that a suitable prompt will never come up which fits its title. What do you reckon?

This is one that has been covered many times, even Jim Adams’ favourite, The Grateful Dead, cut a version. And it has charted a few times, too. The version I first heard, though, was the Dixie Cups, in the 1987 film The Big Easy. I liked the soundtrack so much I bought the album. If you’ve never seen the film, it was set in New Orleans so it, and the soundtrack, has a very cajun feel to it. I liked it a lot, but it might feel quite dated now, I haven’t watched it for years.

I read that the Dixie Cups first released the song in 1965, and there were legal wrangles over who actually wrote the song. But anyways, it sounds good to me.
