Here's what happens when a band decides to update one of its greatest hits and, in the process, turns it into some cheesy 80s mess. Here's a comparison between the two versions.
Here is the original, recorded by them in 1974. It reached #1 on the UK singles chart and stayed there for three weeks. I like this version of the song a lot. It's a solid song. Give it a listen before you check their update attempt.
Below is the re-recorded version they released some time in the 1980s. The first time I heard it, I cringed at it. Those over-the-top 80s sounds, the ridiculous appearance of the band in this video, as well as the female vocal during the chorus, make it entirely godawful; still... it somehow has a charm to it.

The greatest segue into a weather segment.
