Tuesday Top Ten: Cover Songs The Cover Artist Made Its Own

As you probably know, Joe Cocker died a couple weeks ago. Cocker made a career out of transforming other artists' songs into his own, scoring Top 40 hits in the U.S. and/or UK with his covers of "With a Little Help From My Friends" (The Beatles), "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window" (The Beatles), "The Letter" (The Box Tops), "Cry Me a River" (Julie London), "Feeling Alright" (Traffic), "Midnight Rider" (The Allman Brothers Band), "You Are So Beautiful" (Billy Preston), and "Unchain My Heart" (Ray Charles), among others. He was able to add his own arrangements, style, and flair to most of those songs to essentially make them into his own. Cocker's death got me thinking about songs that have been covered so successfully that the cover version of the song is what most people think of when they hear the song title. Hence, this Tuesday Top Ten: cover songs that the cover artists made their own. These are songs that might make you say, "I didn't even know that was a cover!" And yes, you will say it with enough enthusiasm to merit an exclamation mark. 3. This list will not include songs where the original version is just as famous as the cover version. Songs that come to mind that would fall into this category would be "Mony Mony," which was a #3 song in the US and #1 song in the UK for Tommy James and the Shondells 13 years before it was a Billboard #1 song for Billy Idol. Chart success of the original or cover isn't necessarily the deciding factor, but the cover should be the song that people of all ages overwhelmingly think of when they see the song title. In this respect, even though I think "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston is far more recognizable than Dolly Parton's original, I put it in the honorable mention category, rather than the Top Ten, since Parton's version hit #1 twice on the Billboard country charts and was featured in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. 4. This isn't a list of my favorite cover songs or cover songs that I necessarily... Source: Give Me Your Handrew
