BEFORE IT WAS A
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.
British performer Billy Idol originally recorded a version of "Mony Mony" in 1981. A live recording was then issued 6 years later. This rendition reached #7 on the British chart and topped Billboard's US Hot 100.
The original version of the song was recorded by Tommy James & The Shondells. In 1968, the American group made #1 in the UK and peaked at #3 Stateside with the garage rock track. Lead singer James co-wrote the hit.
Each new song will be added to the spotify playlist named: ‘Before It Was A Hit Song’. You can check out the previous earlier / original versions of the hit songs you know and love.
