REVIEWS
Average points: 4.67 (Reviews: 45)
*****
Ha ha, mal nicht das Kindermädchen oder die etwas quiekende Kylie aus Australien, sondern knallharte Jungs, die diesen Titel auch auf # 1 in den USA brachten. 1974 eine außergewöhnliche und gute Coverversion.
*****
> southpaw
****
ist in ordnung
*****
Das war Anno 1974 genau der richtige Krach, mit dem aufmüpfige Teenager ihre genervte Umwelt traktieren konnten.
****
Ok, doch mir gefallen andere Songs - auch covers - von ihnen um Längen besser!
****
Da gibts bessere Songs... (oder Versionen)!
****
ordentlich gecovert..
****
...gut...
*****
Gefällt mir. Netter Gutelaune-Song. Gibt zwar Besseres, gebe aber trotzdem eine knappe 5.
******
Der Song ist schon genial, und dann diese Aufnahme. Irgendwie klingt die extrem schräg. Finde ich aber extrem super.
*****
Genau wie bei "You Keep Me Hangin On" (gecovert von Kim Wilde, im Original von "The Supremes") oder "Venus" (Original: "Shocking Blue", Cover: "Bananarama") gefällt mir hier das Original tausenfach besser.

marschiert gut.
*****
Ein Super Teil, das geht gut ab. In 3/74 USA #1 6/74 D #10
****
knappe 4*
******
Coverversion - Schräg und Kult, mit das Beste von GFR - und einen Hauch besser als das Little-Eva-Original von 1962.

Geile Gitarren!
*****
Yeah,super. Gefällt mir auch besser als das doch arg angestaubte Original, da knackiger.
*****
Great
*****
Stimme zu, viel dynamischer als das Original.
*****
sehr gute Version
*****
Fetzige Neuauflage des Oldies von Little Eve.
****
Den Song kennt nun wohl jede Generation zwischen 1962-1988 auf ihre Weise - von Little Eva bis Kylie Minogue. Hier eine rockige Version von G.F.R. aus dem Jahr '74.
****
das ist definitiv schräg!
*****
... stark ...<br>
****
klingt auch in dieser Version nicht schlecht
****
Gute Version.
****
pretty decent cover, don't mind it
*****
... sehr gutes Cover ....
*****
Starke Version!
******
Gehört mit zu den besten Rocksongs der 70er Jahren !
******
Absolut spitzenmäßiges Cover auf rockig gemacht, das Intro ist schon der Hammer ...
******
Great

Rock-Mitklatschnummer aus den 70er – ordentlich – 4*…
*****
gute Coverversion
****
...gut...
*****
Une version intelligente.
****
Mit der Glam Rock Walze über den Klassiker - why not? Klingt nichtmal so schlecht, obwohl das natürlich niemals an das Originale rankommt!
****
Die Version rockt auch, die anderen gefällt mir besser.
****
<br>Gutes Cover auch Kylie hatte den Song gecovert.
****
Gut, auch wenn die eingefleischten Grand Funk-Fans damit endgültig entnervt gewesen sein dürften. Wird anno 2017 mal wieder Zeit, das Lied zu covern. Rock'n Roll muss zurück ins Radio!
****
Sehr ordentliches Cover
*****
Fine
****
Ganz okay. Bin aber kein großer Fan des Liedes im allgemeinen.
****
Nicht schlecht, aber die anderen Versionen gefallen mir besser.<br><br>CDN: #1 (2 weeks), 1974<br>USA: #1 (2 weeks), 1974
****
passabel
