There are plenty of songs that have been covered a lot, like Amazing Grace, Over The Rainbow, White Christmas, Hallelujah and the list goes on and on. It's hard to figure out how often they have been covered though. And if you count classical music and songs like Happy Birthday too, one of those would probably win. I've often read that Something is the second most covered song ever, but I don't know if that's true. It's missing on a lot of lists too. Not that that says anything, but still.
