Some songs have to go around the block a time or two before they find the right destination. "Girls Just Want To Have Fun" is undoubtedly Cyndi Lauper's song... but it's also a cover. Lauper took Robert Hazard's original 1979 track about a bad boy looking to score, flipped the gender, and turned it into a feminist anthem, not to mention a breakthrough hit. Here are ten more famous songs. Can you guess Who Did It First?

I enjoyed taking your quiz even though I got three wrong. One of those was the Cat Stevens number. I should have read the question slower or something; he is my favourite writer / singer. Good stuff.Alex Mowatt from Balerno, Midlothian, Scotland.
