The Animals: Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood
I was in an expensive shoe shop cum coffee shop in Leicester yesterday - well, it was Clarendon Park - when they played this. It sounded good,
Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood was originally recorded, at a much slower tempo, by Nina Simone. Many later covers have been inspired by The Animals' take on it.
This cracking live performance comes from the 1965 New Musical Express poll winners concert. The whole show is on Youtube.
