Did you hear? Various Artists - I Wonder

"I Wonder" was a minor hit for the Crystals in 1964. The Ronettes also recorded a version of the tune. I don't think it was a big deal, Phil Spector produced both tracks. My question is: which is the better version?

The Ronettes clearly win this battle. The song has more momentum, clearer vocals, and one of the sexiest bridges ever. I love the Crystals, but I'd take the Ronettes any day.
