It should have been me - I've got the bullets

'It should have been me' is the sad tale of a woman who witnesses the wedding of the man of her dreams with someone else. The song was written by Stevenson and Whitfield and originally recorded by Gladys Knight & the Pips in 1968.

The Dutch band I've got the bullets recorded a cover version of the song in 1986 on their self-titled debut album. The track was also released as a single, but this one failed to chart.

In the middle of the night - I've got the bullets

The Dutch band I've got the bullets formed in 1985. The name of the band was taken from the movie 'Rebel without a cause' in which James Dean exclaims these words in the final scene. The band changes personnel regularly, which isn't strange with nine members . Lead vocalist Fréderique Spigt is the face of the group with her raw voice and dynamic stage persona.

Their single 'In the middle of the night' is released in 1986 and is a modest hit in the Netherlands, peaking at number 36 in the Dutch Top 40.
