The Spencer Davis Group - Gimme Some Lovin' (Stereo Music Video)





"Gimme Some Lovin'" is a song written by Steve Winwood, Spencer Davis and Muff Winwood, although solely credited to Winwood on the UK single label, and performed by The Spencer Davis Group.

The song was conceived, arranged, and rehearsed in just half an hour. At the time, the group was under pressure to come up with another hit, following the relatively poor showing of their previous single, "When I Come Home"


In 1966, "Gimme Some Lovin'" reached number two in the UK and number seven in the US. The song is ranked number 247 on the Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Steve Winwood was just 17 years old when he wrote this song. It was one of the first songs he wrote, and the first one that he says wasn't derivative of something already recorded. Winwood played a Hammond B-3 organ on this track, which became one of the most recognizable organ riffs in rock. Winwood also wrote the song on the instrument, which explains why it is so prominent in the mix.
