‘Give Me Love, Give Me Peace on Earth’ by George Harrison – Classic Hit or Miss

‘I Gotcha’ by Joe Tex – Classic Hit or Miss

"I Gotcha" is a song by Joe Tex. He originally intended for the song to be recorded by King Floyd, but Floyd never recorded it. Instead, Tex went ahead and recorded it himself in the late 1960s, but ended up not releasing it. He decided to re-record the song in late 1971 and released it as the B-side of "A Mother's Prayer," the first single off his 1972 album that was also titled I Gotcha. This angry song has the singer accusing his lover of being unfaithful to him, by having an affair with another man, so he tests her to ask her to kiss him for a longer time, and when he is unsatisfied, he demands to her to have her give him back his love, as a result of playing with his affections. Radio DJs decided to flip the single over and started playing "I Gotcha." This would result in Tex having his first major hit in five years as "I Gotcha" eventually peaked at number one on the R&B chart and number two on the Pop chart for two weeks, behind "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" by Roberta Flack and would sell around three million copies.
