    Re: Best version of: I Heard it Through the Grapevine

    I got so burned out on the Marvin Gaye version when it was out and dominated the charts for all those weeks. I much prefer the Gladys Knight/Pips version. I believe it was the original anyway. Kind of "sassy".


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    Creedence. Full solo version.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    CCR on Grapevine but Tina has them on "Proud Mary." I don't care if they wrote it, Tina wins.
