Covers that you might not have known are covers: "I Can't Stand Up (for Falling Down)"

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.

"I Can't Stand Up (for Falling Down)"

Maybe this is a little too obscure to have a "familiar version," but it's familiar to me. One of my favorite Costello songs.

Familiar version: Elvis Costello and the Attractions (1980)
Original version: Sam and Dave (1967)

Elvis Costello



Sam and Dave (Just Sam [Moore], actually. I couldn't find a "Sam and Dave" version, but this is in the style of the original.)
