This Beatles classic took the world by storm when it was released in 1967, reaching the top spot in both the UK and the US. There has been many cover versions of it over the years, including a version by Tom Jones, who later teamed up with the Stereophonics to record the following song.

2. Three Dog Night – Mama Told Me Not To Come

The Tom Jones and Stereophonics version of this song hit number 4 in the UK, but the Three Dog Night version hit a peak of number 3 in 1970. The song was actually first performed by Eric Burdon and the Animals.
