Baby, do you understand me now
Sometimes I feel a little mad
Well, don't you know that
No one alive can always be an angel

    for almost 50 years, this track has spoke to the core of my heart, because i am just a soul whose intentions are good; Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

    The song is great, but this performance Sucks. I've heard Eric and The version by Esmerelda (disco) and if this is your first listening to it, PLEASE listen to the recordings so that you can enjoy it.

    Been a month since the last shout, so I guess they fixed it to the correct version now, cause mine's playing the recognizable studio version.
