Browsing around a bit more

on the site I used for the previous post, I found other curiosities about songs...

Mahna Mahna

I knew the Muppet Show version (much more polished than the Ed Sullivan Show version), but I'd no idea how recent the base song was, nor where it came from.

Herod's Song

Try it and See was the first use of the tune--not as good as the Jesus Christ Superstar version.

Girl from Ipanema

(Adam Neely analyses it) Believe it or not, I'd never heard Amy Winehouse sing this--or anything, actually. Not sure I missed much.

Eres tu

Did Calderon copy an older work? It sounds like he picked out a theme, but developed it completely differently. Is that enough to make it derivative?

Those were fun. I had not known the earlier versions of any of them
