Johnny Cash - Hurt
Even better than the original.
I have spent so much time listening to the radio ( 45 years doing driving jobs), either Top 40 ( 60"s) Progressive/FM, or Classic Rock, that I don't really mean #1 hits here...
..so much as songs that just got a lot of radio play.
( there was a time, back in ' late '80's to '90's where Classic Rock stations played just so much more depth either in terms of artists, or album depth by all the huge artists)
So I dont really mean like hair or metal bands that do ballads ( they all did that) so much as a popular song by artist X that really doesn't sound like the bulk of their work?
Another ex. Perhaps?
Not songs that were hits, but got a lot of airplay on FM Radio were Steely Dan's
" Dirty Work" or " Midnight Cruiser" as neither were sung by Donald Fagan
** maybe that's veering a bit from my own OP, still, cool songs!
Chicago, everything after Kath died became schmaltzy! But that was a decade of soft SOFT rock and their label liked it.
I don't think I've been happier in my entire life since those days in the Caribbean. Lovely beaches, salsa, steel drums and people of good will and passion who dance to a different and I think better drum than ours. Return to that wonderful island is at the top of my bucket list and hopefully I'll make that happen before I check out.
Chris Rhea had a hit with Fool (if you think it’s over) which sounds nothing like “Road to Hell”.
It was an aircraft carrier for me..(but at least I had my '74 Tele Thinline and 72 Bassman 10 with me!)
Mine was a Fender Coronado II.
This was the first thing that came to my mind:
There's a few emerging,. Notting Hillbillies...or something like that, they mix it up pretty good.
Good one! (Huge hit, and NOT sung by main/lead singer)
I was thinking about queen. And while I think the singles are different they’re not DIFFERENT. There’s a sense that the band who did we will rock you also did I want to break free.
But then there’s a sense that there isn’t.

Anything Chicago put out under the influence of David Foster.
I bought the Allman Brothers, Brothers & Sisters album for Ramblin' Man. Was surprised when nothing else on the record sounded like that.
Another head scratcher is Cream's first single, Wrapping Paper. What were they thinking?
Some Girls is my favorite Stones album too, but I can't agree that it doesn't sound like them. The first time I heard Miss You on the radio I knew it was them instantly, before Mick even started singing, despite the disco beat and Sugar Blue's intro on harp.
I remember the first time I heard [EDIT] "Hungry Heart" on the radio. I thought it was Billy Joel trying to sound like Springsteen.
"Every Breath You Take" sounded nothing like anything the Police had done up to that point. They had been doing heavily ska-influenced stuff.
And i still don't like "Heart of Glass" because it wasn't the Blondie that I wanted to hear.
" Ramblin' Man" is indeed the song I was thinking of!
I knew NOTHING about any other ABB song when I ordered Brothers and Sisters LP ( I was 15-16) from Columbia House Records- and did not like the other songs ( at first) when listening to them.
It wasn't so much that I didn't like the other songs, so much as I'd never heard anything like the Allmans.
I year later, I'm listening to Fillmore East and it was WTF is this?!?!
REM's "End of the World"?
Ooops. Sorry. We must have overlapped.
Someone got ' it' a few post back
It was ABB' s " Ramblin Man"
