1/15/10 – All Girl Cat Fight (You’re No Good)

You’re No Good

This week, the girls get tough and aren’t afraid to sing about it.  “You’re No Good” is a classic and I’m playing 3 different versions of the song for your consideration.

Dee Dee Warwick, Dionne’s baby sister and Betty Everett both recorded and released the tune in 1963, while Linda Ronstadt took it to the top of the charts in 1974.  Which one do you dig the most?  Which woman means it the most?  Which woman are you most afraid of?  There is also a tribute to Bobby Charles, who passed away this week at the end of the Cat Fight Podcast.

    Dee Dee for me, hands down. She’s out for blood on this one. Go Dee Dee!

    Dee Dee for me on music, but Linda on vocals. Betty was way too mild and not angry enough at the guy! My official vote went to Dee Dee for the music.

    Dee Dee was a No No, Betty(Shoop Shoop Everett) had little emotion to her voice while Linda Ronstadt had the hurt and resentment in the tone of her voice appropriate for the message of those lyrics.

    Dee Dee’s all on it, the one for me.

    Dee Dee for me, Linda is a very very close second in my opinion but after listening 4 or 5 times I have to go with Dee Dee. Thank you Matt for doing these Cat Fights on your own nickel, so to speak. I hope you on the air again soon.

    I got to give this one to Linda, she always sounded good when she let her pipes open up. It’s a shame she’s said she hates her older stuff. She had that hippie chick goin’ on that I found so sexy. I remember her being on the Tonight Show barefoot, and………………..I’m sorry, what was I talking about?

    Another great episode Matt. One thing that struck me is how positively grungy the short guitar solo is in the Warwick version. Sounds a lot like the guitar fuzz that bands like the Sonics recorded a few years later.

    Linda all the way. The voice, the production, it all ads up to a classic that really captures the meaning of the song.
