Haven't I Heard That Before #3: The Troggs and Beck

In all accuracy "I Can Only Give You Everything" has been recored by a bunch of groups including the MC5, Them, The Modernettes, and Richard Hell. I prefer The Trogg's version [maybe their third best song after "Love Is All Around" and "Wild Thing"]...but I'm not sure which version Beck became so enamored with that he incorporated the lead guitar part into "Devil's Haircut" from Odelay.
