You Really Got a Hold On Me by The Beatles – ***

First released: 1963

For some reason, even though the Smokey Robinson and The Miracles version is called "You’ve Really Got a Hold On Me", The Beatles changed it to "You"… Anyway, I didn’t hear any other version of this song except the Eddie Money version when I heard this Beatles version and I originally thought it was too slow. I have since grown to accept it, but it’s funny how a cover can influence your thoughts on an original. It was originally on "With The Beatles". A radio version from 1963 appeared on 1994's "Live at the BBC". A live version from 1963 appears on "Anthology 1" in 1995.
