Unless you're really subverting it and doing something pretty far out, James Brown covers are largely best avoided. Duffy and Johnny's rendition is a refreshing exception; the orchestra carry serious weight (and keep it as tight as Brown as insist himself) and Johnny's delivery is emphatic enough to rise myriad groin thrusts. Watch out for the incredible organ solo, followed by a double kickdrum crescendo and insane spiralling horn riffs. Feel good? Damn straight!
