Three Hits You Didn't Know Were Covers

Last week, I disappeared down the rabbit hole of one-hit wonders, and this afternoon I dove into the world of songs you didn't realize were covers. I'm blaming this article for lighting the spark.

Here are three songs I didn't realize were cover songs. I'm betting you didn't know, either.

"Obsession" by Animotion was originally done by Michael Des Barres and Holly Knight.

"Gloria" by Laura Branigan was originally an Italian hit by Umberto Tozzi.

Juice Newton's "Angel of the Morning" was first recorded by Evie Sands.
