Wilson Picket1965: Wilson Pickett hits #21 with In the Midnight Hour, a song Wicked Pickett composes with Steve Cropper at the historic Lorraine Motel in Memphis. That’s the motel where in 1968 Rev. Martin Luther King will be assassinated. In the Midnight Hour is destined to hit #1 on the charts in August and it will become Pickett’s signature song and a soul standard. Out of Ireland in the 1990s, The Commitments deliver a brilliant cover. Here’s the original and the cover. Those horns sound so good.
