Van Halen ruined it just as well. I can't complain about Bowie and Jagger's version, I certainly liked it. As for this version it's a no go, I'm just not feeling it. But I do like "Heat Wave" and "No Where To Run", though.
There's no contest between MR&V and the Supremes; the Supremes were by far the better group. But MR&V did have at least one great tune: Nowhere To Run. Notably, that song was written by the Holland-Dozier-Holland team responsible for most of the Supremes hits.
Dancing In The Streets was good but couldn't approach NTR. IMO the best cover (which exceeds the original) is the one by The Mamas & The Papas. Most people have forgotten that one, but if you like this tune you should seek it out and give it a listen.
I like it too. And there's a reason the other group is called The Supremes. But give Martha and The Vandellas their due, too. The Mamas and Papas version is a bit comical in parts, and as mentioned above superior. www.youtube.com/watch?v=_v2MwzdzFsY
