Friday Night Music - Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood

I'm not sure where I have been all my life that I never heard this version before last week.

On the soundtrack of the movie Layer Cake, starring Daniel Craig.  The role that apparently bought him to the attention of Barbara Broccoli and the coveted role of Bond.  James Bond.

If this doesn't rock your socks, nothing will.

Joe Cocker's version of Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood.  Incomparable.


  1. I have two words for this: tay stee.

    You really feeling the meaning of the lyrics with this.

    Eric, eat your heart out.

  2. Yup, Eric didn't get it at all after listening to this.

  3. Love. That. Organ.

    Agreed, this is the definitive and canonical version.

  4. I prefer Elvis's version.


  5. Awesome, Fay.

    I love Joe, hard to believe he's gone.

  6. Eric Burden (first group I ever saw live, my mom made my older sister take me with her) is a frickin tool. I've seen numerous photos of him sporting his Che beret (beret no less!) over those gawd awful hair plugs. So edgy.
