What are some great recorded performances that most people don’t know are covers?

Written by on October 23, 2020

Neil Anderson: –

Some are pretty well known. You probably know that Pink Cadillac, and Blinded by the Light are Springsteen songs. Or that Dolly Parton write I will always love you. And if course Respect by Aretha Franklin was written by Otis Redding. If you listen to the originals of these you’ll often see the the covers have a little oomph and there’s a reason the covers are better know.

Many people know that Without You, a big hit for Mariah Carey was covered from Harry Nilsson, although it’s less well known that it was originally recorded by Bad Finger.

Less known are:

Girls just want to have fun was originally recorded by Robin Hazard

Red Red Wine, like I’m a Believer, was originally a Neil Diamond song.

Tainted Love was originally a minor northern soul hit for Gloria Jones

I Love Rock and Roll was recorded by Arrows. Apart from this song I’ve no idea about the band. I’m sure someone here knows about them though.

Only Love Can Break Your Heart was a big U.K. race scene hit in the 90s for Saint Etienne. However, it was originally a waltz time recording by Neil Young.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to
    get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance.
    I must say you have done a very good job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Internet explorer.
    Excellent Blog!

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this matter to be really something which I think I would never
    understand. It seems too complex and very broad for
    me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try
    to get the hang of it!

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up and
    let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly.

    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.

    Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very
    techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions?

    Appreciate it

    When I originally commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new
    comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment
    is added I recieve 4 emails with the exact same comment.
    There has to be an easy method you are able to remove me from that
    service? Kudos!

    My programmer is trying to convince me to move
    to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea
    because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none
    the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog.

    Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
    Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see
    a nice blog like this one these days.

    Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization?
    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing
    very good results. If you know of any please share.
    Thank you!

    the images on this blog loading? I’m trying
    to figure out if its a problem on my end or
    if it’s the blog. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Having read this I thought it was very informative.

    I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this informative article together.
    I once again find myself personally spending a significant amount of time both reading and posting comments.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  21. Kendra   On   January 15, 2021 at 8:04 am

    What’s up all, here every one is sharing these kinds of experience, thus it’s nice to read this web site, and I used to go to see
    this weblog everyday.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
    though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting
    videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to
    read?

  24. Anton   On   January 15, 2021 at 5:52 pm

    It is perfect time to make some plans for the future
    and it’s time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you few interesting things or advice.
    Maybe you could write next articles referring to this article.
    I want to read even more things about it!
