Pain In My Heart was 'adapted' from an existing song Ruler Of My Heart by Otis Redding. Ruler Of My Heart was written by Allen Toussaint, under the pseudonym Naomi Neville (his mother's name), for Irma Thomas. Pain In My Heart was credited on early recordings to Otis Redding but following legal action the writing credits were changed to Naomi Neville.
