*****
Dieser Rock song war 2 mal einer Hit in NL....
In Februar 1975 und Februar 1979.... Höchste Platz war in 1979 am rang # 13...
*****
Gutes Cover vom John Ellison - Song.
Original: Soul Brothers Six (1967)
****
Anfang 1975 eine # 3 in den USA, guter Rock'n'Roll aus Michigan.
****
Für mich eine der etwas schwächeren G.F. Nummern. Trotzdem, "Some Kind Of Wonderful" ist bestes Rockhandwerk, das weit über dem Durchschnitt liegt und keinesfalls unter 4 Sterne liegt.
******
Mehr davon bitte!
****
guter radiorock...

solide 4*

...gut...

▓ Goede plaat van de rockband "Grand Funk Railroad" uit begin 1975 !!! Zoals @SportyJohn al schreef, haalde ze met deze "Somekind Of Wonderful" zelfs 2 x de Hollandse hitlijsten !!! In 1979 zelfs de NL Top 40 !!! Zelfs na meer dan 32 jaar vind ik de plaat persoonlijk nog steeds 5 sterren waard !!! (NL Top 40: 7 wk / # 13) !!!
*****
Eine weitere starke Nummer aus dem Hause Grand Funk! Die Band hatte so manchen Klassiker!
****
ist ein gute Nummer.

Zwar nicht unbedingt ein Grand Funk Favorit von mir, trotzdem finde ich ihre Version dieses Oldies als recht gelungen.
****
Uitstekende rockplaat van Grank Funk Railroad.
*****
Sehr gute Mucke aus den 70ern.

Ende 1974 eine US #3 und somit ihr 2. größter Hit.

Einfach stark. Diesen Song höre ich mir immer wieder gerne an.
***
Noch'n Cover (vorher hatte ich Loco-motion).
Da bleibe ich beim Cover von Huey Lewis. :-)
****
Uitstekende rockplaat. Het heeft wel enkele jaren geduurd voordat de single een hit werd.
******
Zeer goed nummer van Grand Funk. Volgens mij een klassieker
******
Voll geiler Song!!!.
*****
Good !
****
netter Rocksong der 70er, dem es jedoch an der nötigen Explosivität fehlt – 4*...
****
omg it's the i kissed a girl beat.

but actually this song is pretty catchy i like it
****
... sehr stark, vor allem der Bass kommt gut ...
*****
In der Tat ein super Stück, ich erhöhe auf 5.

Ich bin ein alter GTA Zocker und der geht mir nicht mehr aus den Ohren. Rockt!

"My baby, she's alright... My baby, she's clean out-of-sight.
Don't you know that she is... She's some kind of wonderful".


....Dann geht's richtig ab!
