    The problem is the Sam & Dave and Sledge songs are from the '60s and the Melvin tune is from the '70s. The covers -- from the '80s and later -- are the ones the listeners in their 30s and 40s are more likely to remember as current hits and prefer to hear on the radio in 2019. For what it's worth, I really like the Simply Red version and often wonder why Mick Hucknall didn't become a much bigger star.

    My opinion is I don't like Mick Hucknall, but that's just me.
