Covers that you might not have known are covers: "Red, Red Wine"

Lots of times, the most familiar version of a song isn't the original version. I'll be posting some of these "covers that you might not have known are covers" on Saturdays.

First up: "Red, Red Wine"
Familiar version: UB40
Original version: Neil Diamond (srsly)

UB40:



Neil Diamond:

    Wow, that was bad! I think there's good reason why UB40 owns that song!

  2. If I'd never heard UB40's version, I probably wouldn't think Diamond's is so bad. Anyway, there will be more Neil Diamond in this series, because he was actually a very good songwriter.
