** "Yesterday" from ''Music/{{Help}}'' is statistically one of the most covered songs of all time...but seriously can you name ''any'' cover it without consulting TheOtherWiki?

* DHT's 2004 cover of Music/{{Roxette}}'s "Listen to Your Heart", which was [[OneHitWonder their sole international hit]], introduced many younger audiences to the song. By the 2010's, DHT's version had mostly faded from memory, and Roxette's original once again reigned supreme.

* Numerous country singers have covered songs by Music/HankWilliams, and while a few of them have become major hits (e.g. Charley Pride's covers of "You Win Again" and "Honky Tonk Blues" both made it to #1 in 1980), none of them have supplanted the originals in the public consciousness.
** The only one that comes close is George Thorogood's cover of "Move It On Over", which still gets radio play on Classic Rock stations.

* Blue Swede's 1974 #1 "Hooked On A Feeling" is much better known than B.J. Thomas's original. The same cannot be said for their #7 cover of "Never My Love," however, and the Association's hit is still the version most people think of first, with the Fifth Dimension's version a close second, largely due to both being produced by Bones Howe, and Blue Swede are today remembered only for the former.

* While the [=McCoys=]' version of "Hang On Sloopy" is the best known, their #7 hit "Fever" is not as remembered as the original versions (namely Peggy Lee's) from the 1950s.

* While the [=McCoys=]' version of "Hang On Sloopy" is the best known, their #7 hit "Fever" is not as remembered as the original versions (namely Peggy Lee's) from the 1950s. The "Hang On Sloopy" example is actually a subversion, however, as the song was actually first recorded as "My Girl Sloopy" by R&B group the Vibrations.
