The Lightning Seeds – You Showed Me

Back in 1964, two members of the American rock band The Byrds wrote “You Showed Me”. The first and original version, however, was recorded by another band – The Turtles, and became their last hit in the US.
Object of many covers, one of the good ones is coming from the British The Lightning Seeds. They released it in 1997 and even included some loops and samplers from the original. And once again the track became one of the most successful for its band.
