In all seriousness it's probably worth drawing a distinction where a song was first made famous by a person who didn't write it. So Sinead O'Connor didn't write Nothing Compares 2 U, nor did Carly Simon write You're So Vain, but... you get the picture. Love is Blindness, well, I guess it's not famous as such, although it would be familiar to anyone who attended the ZooTV tour. Probably among the reality-tv-talent-show set, it is likely to be treated the way One is; like the most recent mainstream version that is known of. I'm not sure those people are a great guide to anything.

love is blindness is not, nor has it ever been, "famous" at all.

U2 sort of fucked this up by not playing the song since 1993. It's a top 10 song by them and it's now missed five straight tours.

No, but White's cover got some attention for being in that movie. Which in my mind is the only reason it's being performed on reality tv shows and used in commercials. I mean, they're obviously aping White's version, and there's no other reason I can think of why that song would be used like this after being ignored completely for 20+ years. That's all I was saying.

Pretty sure Ali and Bono were fond of Yves Saint Laurent the designer anyways.

I think another interesting one is 'Hallelujah', it wasn't until Jeff Buckley recorded it that everyone and their fucking grandmother wanted to cover it.

What do you mean, 'what'? I could be miles off - not a Carly Simon afficianado - but I thought I read once that Mick Jagger wrote that song for her.

As I say, if I'm wrong I'm wrong. It doesn't greatly exercise me.

Unbenownst to me for the longest time, Nick Cave's 'O Children' seems to have been picked up on some unlikely radars after it - apparently? - was included in one of the Harry Potter movies. Hasn't been covered though, to my knowledge.

For a while there fifteen or twenty years ago, every man and their dog was covering 'Under the Milky Way' by The Church, but that seems to have died down with the passing of the generations and the turning of the wheel.

No, Simon wrote the song. The only connection Jagger has to it, is that he may have sung some uncredited backup vocals, and that she very vocally stated the song was not about him when a journalist once asked her.

Yes, although I can't remember which one. Harry and Hermoine dance in a tent to it, and it was quite effective.

Ah damnit, that's right. Backing vocals. Yeah, I knew he was involved somehow.
