A covered song is a song is a song that is performed by someone other than the original performer. The top most covered song is “Yesterday” by The Beatles. There have been 7 million covers!
Sometimes the covered version of a song becomes more popular than the original. I always wonder if the original artist is more pleased and flattered by this or angered that he or she couldn’t get the recognition and financial rewards which went to someone else.
