2. The Valentinos, "It's All Over Now," 1964
A rawboned, rattle-trap country-rocker far from the Womacks' gospel-family beginnings, "It's All Over Now" was written by Bobby with his sister-in-law Shirley, and looked to be a breakout hit. But the song would achieve its greatest acclaim when the Rolling Stones covered it (also in 1964), scoring their first U.S. hit. Womack was peeved by the Stones' brattier version and later recorded a definitive grown-folks throwdown with Bill Withers in 1975.
