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 Phil Ochs in five simple steps.

1. Beatles – That’s All Right Mama

Written by and originally performed by Arthur Crudup, the Beatles recorded their version of the song in the early 1960’s for the BBC and it is available on their Live At The BBC Album. It has also been recorded by Elvis.

2. Elvis Presley – That’s All Right Mama

Arguably the song that started it all for Elvis Presley. His version of the Arthur Crudup penned song was recorded in the 1950’s but it didn’t become a hit until it was available for download in 2004 when it reached number 3 in the UK charts. Moving on now, there are a number of songs that the Elvis Presley has covered, and plenty of his songs that have been covered – like the following song.

3. Bruce Springsteen – Can’t Help Falling In Love

Never released as a single by Bruce Springsteen, Can’t Help Falling In Love became something of a staple feature of his gigs throughout the 1980’s. Anyroads, there are plenty of songs that Bruce Springsteen has covered, and plenty of his songs that others have covered – like the following song.
