The Contenders: Page 24
The Who's version is a cover of Eddie Cochran who wrote the song in the late 1950s.
Rush's version of this song is the best on Feedback. One the best covers of all time. - Andrevalenca
Originally released in 1980 this cover made the Australian top ten. This slower ballad version was the first time that that this song was ever recorded this way. Even Lennon wanted to make Help! A ballad but felt obligated to give it that Beatle sound! But Farnham sings Help! With powerful emotion the way this song is meant to be! Tina Turner covered Farnham's version in 1984.
