It's mindblowing when you listen to the 50's and 60's stations and you realize how many "new" songs are covers.

I remember being mindblown when I found out that RHCP's "Higher Ground" was a Stevie Wonder original.

And there's been many more...

ALso the Osmond's did a remake of it too. Oh lawd that vid was ghey as phcuk....

The thing that blows me away the most is that the Bow Wow Wow version is so similar to the original. A lot of covers (good ones, at least) are usually different than the original in a few ways.

I hate to admit it, but one of my favorite remakes is spirit in the sky (re)done by doctor and the medics.
