Here we are with the second installment of Songs You Probably Didn’t Know Are Covers. Like I wrote before, it can be surprising when you realize that a popular song you thought was initially recorded by one artist is actually a cover; and it’s all about timing, producing, marketing and unique talent. Here are some more you may not have known about, including UB4o’s “Red, Red Wine,” which is actually a Neil Diamond cover!
All 4 One – I Swear (originally John Michael Montgomery)
Led Zeppelin – When The Levee Breaks (originally Kansas Joe McCoy and the Memphis Minnies)
