The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game

Quite a few people have done credible versions of this song, Blondie, Grace Jones, Jerry Garcia among others. Ella does a nice version here. I had assumed that it was written by the Marvelettes, a band that performed the gold standard of the hit, but I was wrong.

It was actually written by Smoky Robinson. Here is the Miracles version. The Marvelettes singer Wanda Young Rogers was in fact married to Miracles member Bobby Rogers.
