Listen:

The tempo is a little faster and the production a little more hi-fi all 'round, but otherwise, The Zombies' version of 'Can't Nobody Love You' is a fairly straight cover of a Solomon Burke song.

That being said, this track is still a hell-of-a pleasurable two minute listening experience. It has also retained a 'vintage cool' aesthetic rather than slipping into hokey-ness, which is undoubtedly the reason why it's still popping up in trendy TV show montages—and on the 50th anniversary of the song's release no less. I wonder if Dunham and co. were aware of this little tip of the hat in the recent 'Girls' episode?
