Well, it's SUNG by Dave Walker.

Just don't like "(I'm A) Roadrunner". Dave does GREAT on most Motown tunes he's covered, this one though leaves a lot to be desired.

They should've just redone "Can't Get Next To You" (listen to Dave tear it up on Savoy Brown's Street Corner Talking album)

I've even experimented with substituting that in place of "Roadrunner" on my iPod's Penguin playlist....actually fits MUCH better.

A bit off topic, but did you eve heard "Can't get next to you" by Jess Roden on the album Play It Dirty, PLay It Class? IMO more soulful, sadly Jess has always been pretty underrated, though not by fellow musicians.

It's really too bad I can't vote for both!!!! Can't stand either one of them! Absolutely hate them both. Can't even listen to them.

Since I decided to go ahead and vote, I voted for Derelict, but not because I like Roadrunner better, that's for sure!!
