With the recent passing of Kenny Rogers, it's worth noting that his signature song "The Gambler" was a cover. It was first recorded by 60's and 70's country star Bobby Bare:

Actually many of Rogers best known songs were covers:

Joan Jett has been mentioned several times in the thread, but on one has noted that her biggest hit was a cover

It was originally recorded by the Arrows in 1975

Sadly Arrows lead singer and writer of the song, Alan Merrill, passed away from the effects of COVID-19 on March 29.

Also of note, the Blackhearts hit version was not even Jett's first recording of the song. She recorded it, backed by the Sex Pistols, in 1979.

Of course, the legendary Rock & Roll Hall of Famer's (The Jackson Five) cover is the most celebrated version.

I just enjoyed looking through this entire thread. While there are several ways to consider covers, my idea is to take a well known song and redo it, particularly in a different way. In that regard, Proud Mary was mentioned only once. This was a great song and a huge hit by CCR but was reimagined and made great again by Tina Turner.

A song that wasn't mentioned is Handy Man. Jimmy Jones version was a big hit in 1960 and completely reimagined by James Taylor a few years after it appeared in American Graffiti.

But for pure fun, by far the greatest cover was of a song that was mentioned previously, Nilsson's Without You. The best known cover of Nilsson's cover was by Mariah Carey, but the cover of her rendition done on an international version is pure gold.
