Long before "So Alive" was a big hit for these guys, Love & Rockets did a Temptations cover.
Of course, since Love & Rockets are nothing like The Temptations in any way, they had to make the song, about racial oppression, all their own. They succeeded in making it into a anthem full of the same anger that The Temptations brought to it. Each of the three instruments used - drums, bass, guitar - gets highlighted with solos throughout the song. It's a really sparse arrangement, but really strong and emotion-filled.
