GUEST,Sidewinder. Most Covered Song (55* d) RE: Most Covered Song 06 Oct 05

Thought it was about time I chimed in here with a nugget of information culled from an article I read several years ago that stated; "every three minutes a band is performing Chuck Berrys' "Johhny B. Goode" before a live audience somewhere in the world." Now that would be an astronomical number of cover versions wouldn't it? Going back to the previously stated "Yesterday" being the most covered song; according to the Guinness Book Of Records there are over 2000 known cover versions and I believe a significant percentage of these include the lyrics in various languages and dialects.Second is (unfortunately) "Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round The Old Oak Tree." and I would profer "White Christmas" as a candidate though it would be disregarded as a seasonal song I guess.
