Eighty cover songs and their originals

Both the idea and the execution are excellent: this video shows 80 famous cover songs as well as their less famous original versions (although it is up for discussion whether in some cases it is not the other way round). After almost fifty years of listening to pop/rock music I actually knew quite a lot of the originals better than the later covers. Even so, I was in for a number of surprises. In any case, it's a fun way to spend half an hour.
