You keep me hangin' on


Powerful cover of an original recording that didn't convey the right emotion.

Comments about You keep me hangin' on:

Kim Wilde brought this song to life. 80's synth pop at its very best.

Vanilla Fudge's version makes my ears bleed.
Kim's version is good.
But no one has as much sass and soul as the Supremes do on this number.

I like U2's cover. It was called "Vertigo".
- Pino, Fort Wayne, IN, United States, 19.11.2008
Anyone vs the Supremes, Holland-Dozier-Holland, The Funk Brothers has got to be some kind of a joke. Kim Wilde, don't make me laugh, Vanilla Fudge, well really.

I'm with Stewart - Vanilla Fudge takes the prize!

I vote for Vanilla Fudge's 1968 slow metal cover.
