    Elvis Presley also had a few hits covered by others as well - seeing Carl Perkins on the list made me think of Blue Suede Shoes.
    Just to be clear George i love the Beatles and ofcourse Lennon and Mccartney wrote a huge number of original songs but as you can see they recorded a ton of songs by other artists particularly in there earlier years.

      I knew that "I Fought the Law" by the Clash was a cover of a Bobby Fuller Four song, but I only recently found out that that version was also a cover, of a Crickets song!

          Also, some songs were "covered" before the original artist sang them!

          Both Sides, Now - Judy Collins recorded her version before Joni Mitchell did
          Heart On MY Sleeve - "Extended Play" by Bryan Ferry featured 4 songs which were supposedly covers but, on the notes on the sleeve, it says he recorded this before Gallagher & Lyle did!
          Handbags & Gladrags - Mike D'Abo (of Manfred Mann fame) wrote it but recorded it later, as an album track, after Chris Farlowe

          There are others...

              Not normally a fan of covers, but I reckon Disturbed absolutely nailed the Sound of Silence:

                  Nobody can cover an ABBA song.

                    Hey, even at my tender age I just love ABBA you can't beat, or cover but there have need some decent tribute groups... Considering Benny and Bjorn own the rights to the songs I don't think (please correct me)they have ever sold the rights to the songs for covers.

                      There have been covers, Erasure did do the Abbaisque EP, & Madonna managed to get permission to sample some of their songs.

                              I'm a self confessed metal head but i also like to kick back, take a breath and enjoy some easy listening. One of my favourite songs is the Herb alpert cover of This guys in love with you, a hit in 1968 and originally recorded by Dione warwick also 1968 and called This GIRLS in love with you, Burt bacharachs finest hour (imo)
