This is a piece of shit. Rocksteady is great because it is earnest and real. This sounds like Phish covering Jimmy Buffet - it is ironic hipster garbage.

Understand I am not hating on the other stuff on this blog or modern hipster music in general, just this song. It sucks. Comparing it to Alton Ellis is unpardonable.

dude if you don't like the song, that's fine/understandable, and i'm not saying it's as good as the alton ellis version by any means, but i'm pretty sure this cover is totally sincere and devoid of any irony.

Is this a joke? Did someone sneak a mic into a karaoke bar to record this?

Listen to the original by Jr Walker:

The original score was written and performed by talented musicians and singers as featured as the lead-in image for this blog post. This band managed to create a dynamic, earnest and listenable song which when compared with the cover is incredulous. Overall, it made me realize just how difficult is to create an artistic work that has a lasting quality. cheers, to gvb for accidentally proving this. ***Life is too short to listen to bad cover songs***
