    this is the only covers list i would care about. i ain't big on covers unless i like the covering group & the song being covered.
  • Michael Kuhn
    im also surprised that so many of these songs are actually covers.
  • Michael Kuhn
    add red red wine. i hear that u-40 covered it, but im unsure from who
  • Michael Kuhn
    UB40. my bad
  • Garble86
    Thank you for your support, Michael. I think you'll find Red, Red Wine under Neil Diamond.
  • Michael Kuhn
    no problem. and you may call me mike in the future. facebook won't let me change my name, as I changed from a nickname.
  • Michael Kuhn
    but i hadn't realized you had red red wine in there, i read the playlist a bit more carefully this time
  • Steven Watson

    You heard 'em here first.

    I'd probably suck at this list, but still...

    As much as i love PP Arnold's version of "First Cut", and want to throw other versions in the bin when i hear it - isn't it factually inaccurate to have it there as an original version?

     

    I thought Cat Stevens did the original?

  • Garble86

    Brian - written by Cat for PP - later recorded by himself. Not the first or the last artist to cover a song that they wrote. Brian Wilson rerecorded Little Old Lady with the Beach Boys. David Bowie covered his own All the Young Dudes.

  • Garble86

    Another example on this list: Me & Bobby McGee was written by Kris Kristofferson and first recorded by Roger Miller. Kris later did his own version.

    Ah, i see, Gareth!  Thanks.
