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.
Poor Poor Pitiful Me
Poor Poor Pitiful Me - Linda Ronstadt.jpg
Linda Ronstadt recorded "Poor Poor Pitiful Me" for her hit album 'Simple Dreams'. That LP was issued in 1977. The track was lifted as a single the following year. 
Ronstadt's interpretation was a remake of a composition by singer/ songwriter Warren Zevon. He recorded the original version for his eponymous album which was released in 1976.
