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 Jan Vayne in five simple steps.
1. Beatles – I Wanna Be Your Man
The Beatles knocked this song together in about 20 minutes! It was written for the Rolling Stones but the Beatles recorded their version of it with Ringo on vocals for the album With The Beatles.
2. Rolling Stones – I Wanna Be Your Man
This Beatles track was the second single for the Rolling Stones in the UK and reached a peak of number 12 in November 1963. It was sung by Mick Jagger.
3. David Bowie and Mick Jagger – Dancing In The Street
Mick Jagger and David Bowie teamed up in 1985 to record their version of Dancing In The Street and they took it all the way to the number one spot in the UK. It wasn’t the first time that a David Bowie collaboration had reached number one in the UK, four years previous he had the hit single Under Pressure with Queen.
4. Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody
What a classic song this one is. It hit the number one spot in the UK on original released in 1975 and again on its re-release in 1991. The Queen back catalogue has proved popular when it comes to cover versions – next up is a random Queen cover version.
5. Jan Vayne – Bohemian Rhapsody

This Jan Vayne cover version of the Queen song Bohemian Rhapsody can be found on the 1996 album Classics & Pop.
