    Sam Cooke will always be the smoother, original, but he would be proud of what the spinners did with it.

    Not only did they do a Sam Cooke song....
    I love Sam okay, but these miraculous men outshined Sam on “ This “ song. Especially when the high notes went higher at the end.
    The Spinners. Man ! Great singers !

    The Spinners added the - "I've Loved you for a Long time" to the song. Sam Cooke's version kicked ass in its day ;-)

    Sam's version was softer, more lovelier. I remember this version as child. Sam's was before my time but Sam's version is much more romantic. It's like a prayer.

    On this day in 1980 {September 20th} the Spinners performed "Cupid/I've Love You For A Long Time" on the Dick Clark ABC-TV Saturday-afternoon program 'American Bandstand'...
    At the time the song was at #93 on Billboard's Top 100, it was also it's nineteenth and last week on the chart, ten weeks earlier it had peaked at #4 {for 3 weeks}...
    It reached #5 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart and #4 on the United Kingdom's singles chart...
    Between 1961 and 1995 the Detroit quintet had twenty-nine records on the Top 100, seven made the Top 10 with one reaching #1*, "Then Came You", a duet with Dionne Warwick, for one week on October 20th, 1974...
    * They just missed having a second #1 record when "Working My Way Back to You/Forgive Me, Girl" peaked at #2 {for 2 weeks} in 1980, the 2 weeks it was at #2, the #1 record for both those weeks was "Another Brick in the Wall" by Pink Floyd...

    sam cooke version is better as it does a better job of evoking yearning and heartache. this version is too upbeat and happy, like they already got the girl

  • S Hanlon
    S Hanlon 3 years ago +51

    This is my favorite version. It's not the same as Sam Cooke, it's funky, it's disco, it's motown, they made it their own. Not to take anything away from Sam Cooke. Some songs just need a kickstart, a little electricity. You won't be strutting to the original of this. That's for sure.

    • MrBmic
      MrBmic 10 months ago

      I like both. They are just different. Sam;s make your heart yearn!! This one is cute.

    • theOlLineRebel

      I love this, but I'd still give the edge to Sam Cooke. Love him. And it's so cute.

      It's a rare thing to like the cover better than the original but I agree. I actually heard this one first as I'm 54. I think in general, that is the version people like best. Does something to the memory bank. Good feelings.

      I guess the love has to be more than physical and elevate to another level. But other than that, I can't be sure. I'll have to get back to you on that.

    Nadine Tanya - if you are sober and out of prison, I re-dedicate this song to you, just as I first did when I bought some Maryjane from you back in 1980. I fell impossibly in love with you and your produce back in early 1979, and even though your were sleeping with the dealer I never stopped trying to get you in the sack, and I never will.
