I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'urges some' is the definition.
'impels' can be an answer for 'urges' (I've seen this before). I am not sure about the 'some' bit.

'simple modification' is the wordplay.
'modification' indicates anagramming the letters.
'simple' is an anagram of 'IMPELS'.

(Other definitions for impels that I've seen before include "Spurs" , "Drives or forces" , "Drives on in simple way" , "Urges or drives to do something" , "Urges forward" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
