'Needles and Pins' - I like the Ramones' cover of that.
I should really be on the 'covers' thread, lol.

There are a few covers of that song. It's kind of funny how everyone sings it "needles and pinzah..."

Here's a groovy one. The nice fuzzy guitar lick still sounds pretty great.

Set me off on that one Myers-Needles and Pins, I only know it from the Searchers- and got to thinking what I was doing and who I hung out with and the sounds on the juke box in that period.

Sorry guys. Posted twice.

You're so weird, flea, and that's coming from someone who's definitely considered odd. Love it--piss taker on the sweet sounding original.

I seem to be going through a mini review of my life through music ,and with you playing the Eagles , It recalled the people and places I knew and where we'd end up in which dope bar when living in Rotterdam. Some times I was just so knackered to stand up, but this track would lift me.

I can't view that version here in the States. But as time goes on I appreciate that song more and more
