"Every Little Bit Hurts" is a song written by Ed Cobb that was a hit for Motown singer Brenda Holloway. Though she was against re-recording it (she had recorded a version before signing with Motown), she did and in the summer of 1964 It was a #13 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. It also sparked remakes by the Small Faces and the Spencer Davis Group (with lead vocals by Steve Winwood).
One of THE most iconic songs of all time yet it failed to hit big in the UK. Dodie West scrapped into the bottom end of the chart and Cilla included in on an album and EP but the awesome original by the sensational Little Anthony did nothing. There is no justice in this world!
