Last chance to nominate a track from any era which was recorded and released by another artist/band prior to the version you have chosen. This rules out songs written by the likes of say the Brill Building songwriters who churned out tunes that were recorded by other artists or bands but never by the writers. Once you've decided on a song it may be helpful to Google the title to see if there's a history of its recording and releases to verify its eligibility. Nominations close around 6pm Sunday

Originally by James Carr (wanted Wild Horses but the FBBs released it before the Stones - does that make the Stones version of their own song a cover?) ;¨)

We've been through that Scenario, BN (first few rounds). I nominated it, you knocked it back. I said much the same at the time - how can a band cover their own song. Anyhow, the Stones already had it down on tape. That's how Parsons heard it (hadn't been released though).

Brass Neck says:
I presume my self-rejection is at least consistent with the stance taken earlier?

After Lez:

I had intended putting up Billie Jean by Neil Finn but as both the song and the artist have been nominated already, I'll pass out of respect to the two posters. The clip is on Youtube if anyone wants to check it out.

Another old folk song. Don't know who done the first recorded version, but it was written by an old (OK, very old) Limerick poet, Robert Dwyer Joyce:
