In honor of both the 75th birthday of Martha Reeves (it was Monday; how did you celebrate?) and that the heat index today in the Detroit metro area is expected to break 100 degrees, let's dig into five excellent and (for the most part) varied covers of the 1960s classic.

Please stay hydrated, take care of your pets, and check on any elderly people in your neighborhood today. Also, go jump in the water if you possibly can!
