This past week, CBC Radio Two has been doing a special week on its daily feature "Under the Covers".  Instead of the usual "here's an interesting cover of a older classic pop song", they've been focussing on songs that most people don't know are covers.  I knew most of them already, but was surprised twice:

I was unaware that Blondie was (were?) not the first to record this:  
Wow!  Really ancient reggae! (And the Blondie video is really wacky, isn't it?)

And I was astonished to learn that Soft Cell were not the original artists for this:  
Frankly, I prefer the original.
