Has anybody ever heard The Pats' version of "Cheryl's Going Home"?
I noticed this 45 last week on eBay (but, though tempted, didn't bid on it). Apparently The Pats were an Italian beat group who specialized in covers. Their version of "Cheryl's Going Home" is sung in Italian and titled "Che Colpa Abbiamo Noi," which according to Babelfish translates as "That Guilt We Have." Hmm...I've never gotten that the singer of "Cheryl's Going Home" is feeling "guilty" per se, just frustrated and grieved that he's unable to explain why he said what he said because Cheryl done gone on that train. It would be interesting to hear if The Pats interpret the lyrics as liberally as their title suggests.
The flip side is a version of "Paint it Black" sung in English. Groovy lookin' bunch of guys, don'cha think? (Love those guitars!)
