A few years ago I was in the UK and I was touring with my band, one evening, after Nottingham show, a guy came up to me and told me how much he likes my guitar working. I asked him if he plays or played in a band...Yes, of course.... He told me the name of his band, I said : I'm sorry...I never heard of it
He stared at me and said : You'd better know us, we wrote "I Love Rock 'n' Roll !

Great list! Every time I find out someone had actually covered the song they're making a hit out of, I am floored. And the first time I remember hearing Roy Orbison singing "Pretty Woman", I thought HE was covering Van Halen!!

Please...don't let me think to Diver Down...I was REALLY disappointed when came out...

Thanks for the comment...Oh Pretty Woman was not the only cover...

Interesting list. The Byrds did a cover of "Hey Joe" on their third album 5D. It seems like Hendrix was a bit late to the party on that one. His version is great though.

I just thought of this one. Harry Nilson's version of Without You is a cover of Badfinger's original version.

All of Three Dog Night's hits were covers. They had hits written by Hoyt Thaxton (Joy to the World) , Laura Nyro (Eli's Coming) , Randy Newman (Mama Told Me Not To Come) , Harry Nilsson (One) , Paul Wiiliams (Old Fashioned Love Song), They also covered songs by The Band, Allen Toussaint, Stevie Wonder, and many others. They did very little original material.
