    Default Money (That's What I Want)

    From Wikipedia:
    "Money (That's What I Want)" is a 1959 hit single by Barrett Strong for the Tamla label, distributed nationally on Anna Records. The song was written by Tamla founder Berry Gordy and Janie Bradford, and became the first hit record for Gordy's Motown enterprise.

    ...The song has been covered by myriad artists, including Buddy Guy, The Beatles, Roy Orbison, The Searchers, John Lennon during his solo career, The Trashmen, The Kingsmen (US pop #16), The Rolling Stones, Freddie and the Dreamers, The Who, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Ike & Tina Turner, The Babys, Bern Elliott and the Fenmen, Pearl Jam, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Flying Lizards (in the UK this is probably the best known version of the song, as it peaked at #5 in the singles chart in 1979), Shonen Knife, The Pretenders, Scissor Sisters, Secret Machines, The Sonics, The Smashing Pumpkins, Hanson, The B-52's, Cheap Trick, Josie and the Pussycats, Great White, RC Succession, The Blues Brothers, The Avengers, The Tragically Hip; plus Motown labelmates The Supremes, Thee Midniters, Jr. Walker & the All Stars, The Miracles, Etta James, Jimmy Barnes, Waylon Jennings and Boyz II Men, and The Rembrandts.

    The song was featured in the movie Animal House in which it was performed by John Belushi. When the Blues Brothers band covered the song 18 years later on their Blues Brothers & Friends: LIVE! From Chicago's H.O.B album it was performed by John's brother Jim Belushi in the role of Brother Zee Blues along with Elwood Blues and Sam Moore.

    Also, the song was used in the Beatles biopic Backbeat performed by a band composed of alt-rock musicians (including Soul Asylum's David Pirner, R.E.M.'s Mike Mills, and Nirvana's Dave Grohl). It was mimed in the film by the actors playing the Beatles.

    The British film The Bank Job featured the song as covered by The Storys, who were also featured as the wedding band in an early scene.

    The song was listed as #288 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

    The Beatles' version

    The Beatles recorded "Money (That's What I Want)" in seven takes on July 18, 1963 with their usual lineup. A series of piano overdubs were later added by producer George Martin. The song was released in November 1963 as the final track on their second United Kingdom album, With The Beatles.

    According to George Harrison, the group discovered Strong's version in Brian Epstein's NEMS record store (though not a hit in the UK, it had been issued on London Records in 1960). They had previously performed it during their audition at Decca Records on January 1, 1962. They also recorded it six times for BBC radio. A live version, taped at a concert date in Stockholm, Sweden in October 1963, was included on Anthology 1.

    Well he is a painter and decorator from Little Maplestead, Essex, England, he is 27 and still lives with his parents. He is now an X Factor contestant in this season (one of 16 finalists) and he is the real deal, hands down. And week after week after week, he has amassed huge following with the British public and the judges have absolutely fallen in love with him and his performances.

    "Africa" by Toto is such an iconic song:

    But here is a complete remake of "Africa" (rather than a straight cover version) with new added lyrics and rap arrangement by Karl Wolf, a Lebanese-Canadian star alongside Culture, a Canadian rapper: The music video was filmed in Muscat, Oman.

    Karl Wolf also made, aptly I should day, a version dedicated to the World Cup in South Africa. That was filmed in Montreal without the rap part.

    Karl Wolf made a remake of it as "Lebanon". The song "Lebanon" in case you wondered was not found on the album and was never a single but became very popular just the same with many making their own video versions of it...
