Mick Jagger remade Memory Motel.
ELO with Jeff Lynne covering his song Do Ya by his earlier band the Move!
Sex Pistols - No Feeling (s)
B side of the A&M God Save The Queen single
Album track on Never Mind The Bollocks
Take It Easy - Jackson Browne
Drift Away - Dobie Gray
This Bob Marley one was nagging at me, finally recalled
"Stir It Up" - Bob Marley , 1967 single
Hit for Johnny Nash 1972
Re-recorded by Bob Marley and The Wailers for Catch A Fire 1973.
Jan & Dean included an early version of Dead Man's Curve on the Drag City lp, then added extra vocal and instrumental overdubs to turn it into a hit single some months later.
Yes, you're 100% right - I just brainfarted on the album titles!
I always lump "No Place" and "Long Face" together because a) they were import-only and not released in the US, and b) they're the band's 2 worst albums!
Still embarrassed by the goof - thanks for the correction!
Pearl Jam re-recorded "Evenflow" for a single.
Robert Smith re-sang "Boys Don't Cry" for "Standing On A Beach/Staring At The Sea".
This one is a cover of an artist's own song whilst he was playing guitar another group. So I think it counts as he sings both versions.
Horses by Mayo Thompson on his solo 1970 LP Corky's Debt To His Father
Horses by Pere Ubu on their 1980 album The Art of Walking - with Mayo playing guitar and lead vocal.
Off the top of my head, Devo rerecorded Whip It, Uncontrollable Urge, Girl U Want and Through Being Cool for Rock Band (or one of the other like games). I think one of the reasons for doing so was that the multi-tracks for the Freedom of Choice album were said to be missing but the main reason was purely for commercial reasons. As Devo had signed such a bad publishing contract back in the day, they now pretty much stipulate that if you want to license their songs for ads or things like Rock Band, that a new recording must be used so they get a larger bite of the cherry for performance rights than if using the original track from WB.
The Carpenters re-recorded two songs for their „Singles: 1969-1973“ album: „Top Of The World“ and „Ticket To Ride“
Yep, and quite a number of acts re-recorded their tracks for the same (latter) reason. I know that Motorhead's "Ace of Spades" on RB was new.
I quite like Long Face although it's not up there with their first few albums. Peace In Our Time would tie with No Place as my least favourite. It's all relative though. There are strong songs on both. Thought Stuart checked out on a high with Driving To Damascus. Plenty to enjoy on that one.
Applies for MANY Bob Marley songs. He recorded songs for Trojan Records and re-recorded them years later on Island Records. From "Lively Up Yourself" to "Kaya".
Little feat did this with willin, Cold Cold cold, tripe face boogie
Agree! "DtD" was a nice return to form after the disappointing (to me) "Face".
I also thought "Buffalo" was a good bounce-back after "Home".
"Peace" is definitely spotty but I still like it more than "Home" or "Face"...
Apt timing: Taylor Swift just became the second artist with a re-recorded #1 Billboard country hit of her own #1 country hit, with "Love Story (F.U. Scooter Remix)." Swift's original version topped that chart in 2008.
Dolly Parton hit #1 twice with two different versions of "I Will Always Love You."
Can you think of any more?
From another similar thread, I counted 17 songs that were re-recorded on the Island albums:
This of course applies generally to Jamaican music, as the popular style changed in the small musical scene of the island all the artists usually moved along with the shifts and it was very common to update popular songs in the new style, so you may have for example Ska, Rock Steady, Early Reggae, Roots Reggae, etc. versions of the same song, an example would be Justin Hinds & the Dominoes' "Carry Go Bring Come", which was recorded four or five times in different styles.
They also did Hurry On Sundown twice... once as Hawkwind Zoo and then redid it for their debut LP...
the Beau Brummels did it with “you tell me why” in 1965 and 1975
I guess this is really Rod covering his cover rather than his own original. Not the only time he did that:
Twistin the night away 72 and 87
This old heart of mine 75 and 89
Your song 91 and 2013
Every time we say goodbye, recorded 74, released 95, redone on one of the Songbooks.
Cheek to cheek appeared on two Songbooks, once as a bonus track.
If loving you is wrong, once solo, once with Faces
Ooh la la, kind of...
Also did his own Forever Young 1988 and 96
You really got a hold on me from Soulbook will join the list when the Footloose deluxe comes out.
..and he duetted with others on covers of covers..What made Milwaukee famous with Jerry Lee Lewis and on Nobody Knows you when you’re down and out with Alejandro Fernandez, which screams Clive Davis favour.
Neil Young redid "Mr. Soul" on the "Trans" album.
Squeeze rerecorded a lot of their songs on the album "Spot The Difference" .
Squeeze re-recorded all their hits on the compilation album "Spot the difference"
