BEFORE THE HIT VERSION. This post: LXXII-  EMOTION. Continues: tomorrow.
These songs are well known but you may not know about the earlier attempts to score a hit record with prior versions of the same song.

Destiny's Child scored a Top 10 hit in America and the UK with the single "Emotion" in 2001. Lifted off the 'Survivor' album, the track was written by brothers Barry and Robin Gibb, both members of the Bee Gees.
The siblings had previously offered the song to fellow Australian Samantha Sang, who recorded the original hit version back in 1977. In the following year, her interpretation peaked at #3 in America. It topped the charts in Canada and New Zealand, as well as reaching #2 in Australia.
