13 original Beatles songs* that have been top 10 hits in the main UK or US singles charts for other artists

1. With A Little Help From My Friends (UK No. 1 for Joe Cocker in 1968, Wet Wet Wet in 1988, and Sam & Mark in 2004)
2. Something (UK No. 4 for Shirley Bassey in 1970)
3. Michelle (UK No. 1 for The Overlanders in 1966)

Thanks, @PurplishRain, for reminding me that Shirley Bassey had a major hit with Something . I think she handles this song very well indeed.

Thanks, @Jolly Jimmy, for adding Got To Get You Into My Life to the list. I've just included 'Cliff Bennett and the Rebel Rousers', who achieved their biggest hit (UK No. 6) with this song - produced by Paul McCartney .

6. You Won't See Me (US No. 8 for Anne Murray in 1974)

And thank you @Richard for your comments.  I don't know UK charts, but I do have a reference book for US Billboard.  Also, wasn't this originally Top 5?  Or was I mistaken?  That held me back from responding.

7. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da (UK No. 1 for Marmalade in 1969)

Thank you, @Jolly Jimmy, for reminding me about the Anne Murray cover. Yes, I had originally put 'Top 5', but I don't think there have been enough Top 5 hits, so I edited it to 'Top 10' instead. I'm not certain there are enough Top 10 hits either, but hopefully we can reach 13.

Thanks, @Von Bontee, but it's not a Top 10 hit.

After further checking, there are at least 13 Top 10 hits available for this list.

Yes, thank you, @Jolly Jimmy - I think it's reasonable to include the Stars On 45 Medley.

 

13 original Beatles songs* that have been top 10 hits in the main UK or US singles charts for other artists

(* By 'original Beatles songs', I mean songs written by Lennon, McCartney, Harrison, Starkey or any combination thereof that were included on Beatles records before the other artists' versions)

1. With A Little Help From My Friends (UK No. 1 for Joe Cocker in 1968, Wet Wet Wet in 1988, and Sam & Mark in 2004)
2. Something (UK No. 4 for Shirley Bassey in 1970)

11. The Long And Winding Road (UK No. 1 for Will Young & Gareth Gates in 2002)
12. Stars On 45 Medley** (US No. 1/ UK No. 2 for Stars On 45 in 1981)
13. Yesterday (UK No. 4 for Wet Wet Wet in 1997, UK No. 8 for Matt Monro in 1965)

(** Medley of: Venus / Sugar Sugar / No Reply / I'll Be Back / Drive My Car / Do You Want To Know A Secret / We Can Work It Out / I Should Have Known Better / Nowhere Man / You're Going To Lose That Girl / Stars On 45)

Here are three more possibilities:
+ Help ! (UK No. 3 for Bananarama and Lananeeneenoonoo in 1989)
+ I Saw Him Standing There (US No. 7 / UK No. 8 for Tiffany in 1988) - although this is a small title variation ('Him' instead of 'Her')
+ Let It Be (UK No. 1 for Ferry Aid in 1987) - although Ferry Aid is not an entirely separate entity because it includes Paul McCartney

 

I don't have another list theme for the moment, so would someone else like to start a new list, please?

Songs by other artists with the same song title as a SOLO Beatle song.

We've done this a couple times before with Beatles as a group.  Maybe we can take this to the next level.

If you use a deep album track, I would appreciate it if you could say where your solo Beatle song appears.
