Are these songs covers or the original version?

Prepare to be shocked

Are these songs covers or the original version?
25 August 2017

We all remember the first time a song came on the radio and, instinctively, you announced ‘this is absolute sacrilege, how can anyone touch this utter classic?’

And then, just as instinctively, a nearby child says ‘what are you talking about?’ and you realise that a) they have no idea that this song is a cover because b) you are a hundred years old and the original came out before they were even born.

So, this being the case, you should be able to ace this test.

Which of these are covers, and which are originals? It’s harder than you think.
