ROCK Sex: "You Can't Hurry Love"

ROCK Sex thinks you can't beat a great beat.

The SUPREMES amped up the Motown beat to spectacular effect in their "You Can't Hurry Love":

THE SUPREMES -"You Can't Hurry Love" (1966)

IGGY POP turned that same beat around on his own "Lust For Life":

IGGY POP -"Lust For Life" (live, 1981)

The neo-Mods THE JAM used the beat in this song. At the time, the classic film "A Town Like Alice" had just been remade, and the title punned off of that:

THE JAM -"Town Called Malice" (1982)

From Japan, here's another spin on it:

SHEENA & The ROCKETS -"Sweet Inspiration" (1984)

And the Glasgow all-female band LUSTLEG put their own spin on Iggy with "Lust For Leg" in 1997. (Hit 'Play' on the rightside player when the window comes up.)
