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 Stefanie Heinzmann in five simple steps.
1. Beatles – I Am The Walrus
This Beatles classic featured in the film and subsequent album Magical Mystery Tour. It was famously covered, and released on their album The Masterplan, by Oasis.
2. Oasis – All Around The World
Taken from their album Be Here Now, this song here became the 4th number one hit in the UK for Oasis when it reached the top spot in early 1998. The song shares its name, although that is the only similarity, with a 1977 hit from the Jam.
3. Jam – David Watts
This was the 5th chart hit in the UK for the Jam, as a double A-Side with A Bomb In Wardour Street, reaching a peak of number 25 in August 1978. The song itself was written by Ray Davies and first featured on the 1967 album Something Else By The Kinks!
4. Metallica – You Really Got Me
Rock band Metallica teamed up with Ray Davies (the writer of the song) to record this version of You Really Got Me for the 2010 album See My Friends. Anyroads, there are plenty of songs that Metallica have covered, and plenty of their songs that others have covered – like the following song.
5. Stefanie Heinzmann – The Unforgiven
This Stefanie Heinzmann cover version of the Metallica song The Unforgiven can be found on her album The Masterplan.
