Cover versions: John Fogerty meets Status Quo

BBC Music has launched a poll to find the greatest cover version of all time. But many people do not know that some of the most famous songs in pop history were covers.

Status Quo opened Live Aid with Rockin' All Over the World in 1985, but it was first released by former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman John Fogerty in 1975, when it missed the UK charts.
