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 Jizzy Pearl in five simple steps.
1. Beatles – Please Mr Postman
This song was the debut hit by the Marvelettes and was often performed live by the Beatles, who included a studio version on their album With The Beatles. It was later a UK chart hit for the Carpenters.
2. Carpenters – Desperado
The Carpenters version of Please Mr Postman was included on their album Horizon, as was this song here – which of course is better known as being a song by the Eagles.
3. Eagles – Please Come Home For Christmas
The Eagles had a hit single in the UK with this song in 1978, reaching a peak of number 30. It was more famously covered 16 years later, and hit number 7 in the UK charts, by Bon Jovi.
4. Bon Jovi – Always
Bon Jovi have never had a number one hit in the UK. The closest they got was with this song here which reached number 2 in September 1994. Anyroads, there are plenty of songs that Bon Jovi have covered, and plenty of their songs that others have covered – like the following song.
5. Jizzy Pearl – Bad Medicine
The Jizzy Pearl cover version of the Bon Jovi song Bad Medicine can be found on the album A Tribute to Bon Jovi.
