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 Oxymoron 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 – Stray Cat Blues
This song was never released as a single in the UK, but can be found on their album Beggars Banquet. It has been covered by many different bands and artists, including the following.
4. Cock Sparrer – We Love You
This Cock Sparrer cover version of the Rolling Stones song We Love You can be found on their album England Belongs To Me. Anyroads, there are plenty of songs that the Cock Sparrer have covered, and plenty of their songs that others have covered – like the following song.
5. Oxymoron – A.U.
This Oxymoron cover version of the Cock Sparrer song A.U. can be found on their album Best Before 2000,
