    At this age it is virtually impossible to sing in the very high pitched voices when they made the record.

  • Reply May Palmer April 17, 2019 at 12:37 am

    Wow, the song will always be great…these live vocals…..not so much. They sound incredibly pitchy. Not good. It maybe the time of the season" to lip synch to the original lead vocals instead.

    Colin can’t sang any of their songs anymore. He thinks it’s an opera.

  • Reply FARRINGTON April 17, 2019 at 6:36 pm

    Colin is a consumate professional I remember when we played with them at The Knitting Factory in 2004 he was pacing the hall doing his vocal warmup excercises, what an honor to have shared the stage with them. They were bloody brilliant and wonderful people. Rod Argent is one of my favorite keyboardist’s ?????

    I'd just been watching a video of The Zombies performing this in '65. One of my all time favorites. And then I saw this. Old age sux. Mad respect for these guys.

    Criticism to Colin's voice sounds silly. He sounds awesome – no need to compare it to the original recording. And if we remember he's 73, it's even better

  • Reply Luke Rossi April 18, 2019 at 7:28 pm

    His voice has not held up

  • Reply YodatheHobbit April 19, 2019 at 12:10 am

    Love this song, but it's strange – I really could have sworn they clap part was like a half beat later in the original version. I thought there was a longer pause but I just check the album version and it's the same at it is here live. Did any other band cover this song with a longer pause just before the claps?

  • Reply tpaairman April 19, 2019 at 1:13 am

    I'm sorry, but I couldn't finish watching this. They were a great band, and this is an awesome song, but damn they were struggling to get this one out here.

    The Zombies are still relevant after all these years. Why?, some people might ask. Because they come from an age where popular bands and musicians were talented and wrote their music with passion. I'd like to see if "singers" like Kanye West, Post Malone, Cardi B etc… are still relevant after half a century.

    They just are having a great time and seem like guys that would be really nice to you if you approached them for autographs or to talk to them, I think they realize that they are really lucky to have had this resurgence in their music and are grateful for it and are riding high and are happy, I know that I would be too!
