In 1965, the Animals had a huge trans-atlantic hit with the song “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood”. The song went to #3 in the UK, #4 in Canada and #15 on the Hot 100 in the USA. The song was a rock remake of an earlier blues version by Nina Simone. The song has been featured in commercials many times, covered by many artists and named #322 on the greatest rock and roll songs of all time by Rolling Stone magazine. Another absolutely great song forgotten today.
