|From: Animal Tracks; Year: 1965; Genre: Blues Rock|
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.
