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 Fennesz 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.
2. Paul McCartney & Wings – Live And Let Die
This Paul McCartney & Wings song was used as the theme tune to the James Bond of the same film and became a number 9 hit in the UK charts in June 1973. It later became a number 5 hit in late 1991 when it was covered by Guns And Roses.
3. Guns And Roses – Sympathy For The Devil
In their later years Guns And Roses became something of a glorified cover band. This song here hit a peak of number 9 in the UK charts in early 1995 and was, of course, originally by the Rolling Stones.
4. Rolling Stones – You Can’t Always Get What You Want
This Rolling Stones song was featured on their 1969 album Let It Bleed. Moving on now, there are plenty of songs that the Rolling Stones have covered, and plenty of their songs that others have covered – like the following song.
5. Fennesz – Paint It Black
The Fennesz cover version of the Rolling Stones song Paint It Black was released in 1998.
