Sam Cooke - A Change Is Gonna Come

Sam Cooke took his inspiration from Bob Dylan when writing "A Change Is Gonna Come". Having heard "Blowin' In The Wind" he found it strange that such a poignant song about racism was written by someone who was not black, and voila!, those were the first seeds of  "A Change...", which might be Sam Cooke's finest moment, both as a singer and a songwriter. Released shortly after his death in 1964, it's the song he's best remembered by, far eclipsing pop hits like "Cupid" and "You Send Me", however good those were.
