Same Song – Different Band

Rolling Stones (top) - Devo (bottom)

It’s time once again for YouTube Tuesday. This week’s theme centers on bands and the songs that bind them. The first artist listed for each song is credited with orginally recording the song while the second artist gained recognition for their rendition of the song. Note that David Bowie actually wrote All the Young Dudes for Ian Hunter of Mott the Hoople but didn’t record it first. Check them out and if you have any others you would like to share, please do. Enjoy!
