  1. I was a child when this song was released. I'm 62 now. When Mick Jagger performed this at the Grammys, my daughter thought I had "lost it" when I started dancing. I bet Mr. Burke was smiling down on his performance. Mr. Burke passed away in October 2010, but like so many others, his music is classic and will live forever.

  2. Whats nice is a musician/artist that can look at a cover of there song and appreciate it and even like in this case adapt there own version to include little hints of the cover. Thats why i love the blues brothers, they make many blues classics their own, not to rip of but pay homage. I like how theyve spead it up like the bros version.

  4. RIP -SB …man his vocals came from the lint between his toes – talk about a powerful/soulful singer – what a loss and not many to fill the void

  5. @Gonk Mick Jagger made it his own, like Zom(etc.) said – at the same time honoring Solomon Burke. I absolutely love both of their performances! And I'd really like to hear Michael Grimm do this — I think he's a fan of Burke's and covered some of his other songs. If you haven't heard Michael there're dozens of videos here on YT. He's a joy to hear, like Burke (rest his SOUL)!

  6. Mick Jagger was electric and a master at the Grammys dedicating his performance to Solomon Burke – who had a awesome presence singing sitting down. Both Greats.

  7. Wow what a voice, no wonder Mick Jagger sang his song at the Grammys, sadly he didn't pull it off that well but Solomon can just sit there and get ou moving, Mick Jagger had to run around the stage to fill that void.
