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 Sylvain Luc in five simple steps.
1. Beatles – The Long And Winding Road
The Long And Winding Road can be found on the Beatles album Let It Be and was the 20th and last number one hit for the band in the US. The Beatles never released it as a single in the UK but it did become a hit when covered by Will Young and Gareth Gates.
2. Will Young & Gareth Gates – The Long And Winding Road
Coming not long after coming first and second in Pop Idol, Will Young and Gareth Gates teamed up to record this cover version of the Beatles song The Long And Winding Road, taking it to number one in the UK charts in 2002. Earlier that year, Will Young scored a number one hit in the UK with his version of the following song.
3. Doors – Light My Fire
When the Doors first released this in the UK in 1967 it only reached a peak of number 49. It was re-released in 1991 and managed to make it to number 7 (still not as good as the Will Young version in 2002!). The song was also covered on the album My Cherie Amour by Stevie Wonder.
4. Stevie Wonder – Living For The City
This Stevie Wonder written song was released as a single in the UK, reaching a peak of number 15 in January 1974. Anyroads, there are plenty of Stevie Wonder songs that have been covered by other bands or artists – like the following!
5. Sylvain Luc – Isn’t She Lovely
The Sylvain Luc and Bireli Lagrene cover version of the Stevie Wonder song Isn’t She Lovely can be found on the 2000 album Duet.
