pretty sure the days of worrying about "selling out" ended about 15 years ago.

That's what I just said in my post. A whole generation is going to think it's a Jack White song.

Shuttlecock XIII - Super Deluxe Edition with T-Shirt

Love is Blindness, as made famous by Jack White. Wouldn't be surprised, but that would be sad.

I mean, there's probably a generation that thinks Lovesong is an Adele song, so I'd guess there's some precedent.

i mean, there's probably a generation that thinks "the man who sold the world" is a nirvana song.

i mean, there's probably a generation that thinks "nothing compares 2 u" is a sinead o'connor song.

i mean, there's probably a generation that thinks "crazy little thing called love" is a queen song.

i mean, there's probably a generation that thinks "twist and shout" is a beatles song.

i mean, there's probably a generation that thinks "blue suede shoes" is an elvis song.

Plenty of folks think All Along The Watchtower is a Hendrix song, there's lots of examples. But I don't recall Jack White's LIB being any kind of big hit like the others you mention.

my point is, that's inherent in the nature of covers. there's no point in moaning about it.

I understand & agree, just that White's song never hit big with the mainstream anyway,

This is true, but the way it's being performed in the commercial and by those voice contestants, there's no way they're imitating the original recording.

Also, White's version was used in the Great Gatsby soundtrack, I think that's where it got its attention from.

I always thought "Here I Am" was a UB40 song. Of course I also thought the lead singer was Jamaican
