Are these songs covers or the original version?

Following the release of Taylor Swift’s ‘Look What You Made Me Do’, fans couldn’t help but notice a passing resemblance to a certain other song.

Indeed, soon enough it emerged that Right Said Fred had a writing credit on the single, which shares a bit in common with their hit ‘I’m Too Sexy’.

But that’s just inspiration – plenty of other artists have gone one step further and covered entire songs, and in many cases you probably didn’t even know their version wasn’t the first one.

Below are 15 songs. Some are originals and some are covers. At least one of them isn’t even the second recording of the song in question.

Think you can work out which is which? Good luck.
