Little Bit o’ Soul

First recorded by The Little Darlings (1965).
Hit version by The Music Explosion (US #2 1967).
Also recorded by The Ramones (1983).

From the wiki: “‘Little Bit o’ Soul’ was written in 1964 by British songwriters John Carter and Ken Lewis, and originally recorded by Coventry band The Little Darlings. Carter first met Lewis while both were at school, where they formed a skiffle band in the 1950s called LVI. In 1961 their band, Carter-Lewis & the Southerners, released ‘Back on the Scene’ as a single but the group never broke through. The Southerners main claim to fame remains the brief stint Jimmy Page did as their lead guitarist.
