Take These For A Little While

 




I woke up obsessed with this song. Written by Trade Martin, covered by many, I first heard "Take Me For A Little While" by the Vanilla Fugde, then again by Dusty Springfield, Cher and Dave Edmunds. I believe the original recording was by Evie Sands, but I'm not really sure. There is a Trade Martin version from 1967, which is two years later than Sands version. The song is hard to ruin. Might need to start collecting all the versions I could find like I do with "Sunny."

I don;t think you can make a bad version of this song. These are all great.

Great song for this type of series. A Terry Reid version would be very nice.

Anyone else having trouble with the Cher version? As in, there's no sound. Was looking forward to seeing what her great honking voice did to this.

What a great song! At the risk of showing my ignorance: Is there a way to download these songs? Thank you.

@Anon,
I've replaced the Cher. Wasn't sure what the issue was.

Never been a fan of Cher, but her version of I Walk On Guilded Splinters -- a song nobody in their right mind would try to cover -- is pretty good.

I've always liked the Evie Sands version and Dave Edmunds' Spectorized cover. Vanilla Fudge even did a good one!

Evie should have been a contender, but she had a few bad breaks. This one's pretty hot:
