I absolutely love this song, it was one of the first songs I ever learnt to sing the lyrics in they're entirety, thanks to an awesome primary school teacher who would play guitar and have the whole class sing along to tunes by The Animals, The Beatles and Bob Dylan.
In fact I can't ever remember him teaching us anything besides soccer,singing songs, and doing the occasional spelling bee. Either way, he was one of my greatest teachers!
Back to the song... Eric Burdon's bluesy voice is kick-arse, and the steely gaze he gives throughout the entire clip lets you know (even though he's wearing a suit) he could kick your arse if you step out of line.
They're a bunch of smooth looking bad-asses!
