Covers that you might not have known are covers: "Mony Mony"

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.

Haven't heard the Tommy James version of "Mony Mony" on the radio for a long, long time.

Familiar version: Billy Idol (1987)
Original version: Tommy James and the Shondells (1968)

Tommy James and the Shondells (Nehru jacket + love beads + psychedelic rear projection = AWESOME!)
