Is it possible to link from the Beatles to any other band or artist in the world in only five steps? There is only one way to find out. This one links from the Beatles to Engine Kid in five simple steps.

1. Beatles – Blackbird

Taken from the Beatles album The Beatles (also referred to as the White Album), Blackbird may well be credited as a Beatles song but every single part of the song was constructed and played by Paul McCartney, who in his Wings day wrote Live And Let Die.

2. Guns And Roses – Sympathy For The Devil

In their later years Guns And Roses became something of a glorified cover band. Not only did they cover the Paul McCartney written song Live And Let Die they also covered this one, which hit a peak of number 9 in the UK charts in early 1995 and was, of course, originally by the Rolling Stones.

3. Rolling Stones – Time Is On My Side

This song was released as a single in the UK, reaching a peak of number 62 in October 1982. It has been covered by many different bands and artists, including the following.

4. Tom Petty – Time Is On My Side

This Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers cover version of the Rolling Stones song Time Is On My Side can be found on their album The Flimore 20th Night. Anyroads, there are plenty of songs that Tom Petty has covered, and plenty of his songs that others have covered – like the following song.

5. Engine Kid – Breakdown

This Engine Kid cover version of the Tom Petty song Breakdown can be found on the 1994 album You Got Lucky – A Tribute to Tom Petty.
