3223. Eric Burdon & The Animals - Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood
From: Animal Tracks; Year: 1965; Genre: Blues Rock
I had this song, which is amongst my favourites from Eric Burdon & The Animals, on my mind last night, so, yeah, like always, I'm picking it.
Whilst this was a huge hit for The Animals, it was originally a wonderful piece of bluesy jazz performed by Nina Simone, which can be found here on YouTube. But when Eric Burdon and company got ahold of it they altered all but essentially the lyrics and making it their own. Personally, I love both pieces in their own way, but it's hard not to think of that organ and guitar lick when you think of this song, however, the powerful, deep, and heartfelt lyrics and their delivery are really the driving force for me.

Hear Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood on YouTube.
