Comments about On Broadway:

Both are good. Benson's is slightly better.

I am big fan of George Benson but I think the Drifters version is far more better (for personal reasons) because there is a nostalgia attached to it, which I favor. George Benson is modern jazz. Been there, done that.

What about Gary Numan's version? Also very good. I grew up with George Benson's so I'm partial to that.

George Benson's version is like the man is a channel letting the listener have an almost religious experience. It is that good. As a guitarist and a musician in general I have to say his scat phrasing is some of the most ingenius stuff I've heard. One of the greatest songs of all time, it blows me away. It is so exciting, you don't just listen you take part.
