My favourite version has always been the Tremeloes great version of it.

The Newbeats one is excellent too. I don't like Roy's attempt at all.

it's too soft. Newbeats song "Breakaway" is far better IMHO. Roy's is the best. I'll need to check the other one you mentioned. Thank you My Friend.

You're welcome Robt.

I prefer it with the harmony beat group sound. Good little track.
