Second Hand Songs

I was just looking up whether Neil Diamond wrote "Both Sides Now" (he didn't) and found a nice little site I hadn't heard of. It's called Second Hand Songs, and it's a "cover song database." Like for instance, did you know that Claudine Longet did a version of "Both Sides Now"? Also, did you know that "Major Tom" was originally written by Peter Schilling? Now that's a Very Little Known Fact! Anyway, it's kind of fun.

"Major Tom" was by Peter Schilling, sure. But "Space Oddity" was by David Bowie.

Oops. And I fell for it! Maybe being too literal is a sign of advancement? One can only hope...
