What a rich history of a great song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrquswYcwV0
Righteous Brothers take the trophy though.

A couple of reggae versions:

I think the Righteous Brothers nailed it out of all of them.
It's a classic. There must have been a lot of teenagers locked in an enjoyable slow dance to that song over the years.

Greetings,
I've always liked Greyhounds version too
https://youtu.be/1qaddkbGoBQ?t=27

The rest of the album never fails to entertain as well and is quite cheerful.
Well crafted pop-reggae without pretension but nuff variation imo.

(All tracks have released on cd, mostly on these cheap labels. So why not give it a try? :)
