Neil Young’s “Old Man” (1972) was just covered by Beck for a football commercial.
“That’ll Be The Day” is a Buddy Holly song from 1957. The best-known cover was Linda Ronstadt’s 1976 version.
“Crazy” was written by Willie Nelson but is best known in the version by Patsy Cline (1961). I was once in a restaurant (Mt. Vernon Stable in Baltimore) where someone in a large party stood up, sang the song, and sat back down.
“She Drives Me Crazy” was a 1988 record for the Fine Young Cannibals. The Muppets covered it.
“California Dreamin'” was a 1965 hit for the Mamas and the Papas. Check out the Eddie Hazel version.
I think the background of the writing of “Killing Me Softly with His Song” is more worth reading about than the song.
“School’s Out” is a 1972 Alice Cooper song. Check out his version with the Muppets.
“School Is Out” is a 1961 record by Gary U.S. Bonds. I like the 1977 cover by Ry Cooder.
“There Is Something On Your Mind” was recorded by Big Jay McNeely in 1957. The cover I know is the 1980 version by Professor Longhair.
