But then you don't believe in love songs, love songs
You say my love cannot be true
And if you won't believe in love songs, love songs
Then tell me what to sing for you

In case no one else has said it since you joined, welcome to the Dope! Been enjoying your contributions to this thread.

In a thread like this where we're collaborating on numbered lists, I recommend using the 'Preview Post' /'Go Advanced' button every time you post, just to see if someone's snuck in between the time you read the last post and the time you replied. When you hit that button, you can scroll down and see what the most recent post is *at the time you clicked the preview button* and see if it's still the one you thought you were following.

IMHO, there are good reasons for the 5-minute limit, but that's better discussed in ATMB rather than here.

Usually, all it takes is just adding the missed item and renumbering mine. But if I'm also adding a note or parenthetical thought, with my typing skills, that takes a bit more than five minutes. But I'll take your advice and start using the preview post, starting with this one.

Let me see if I get this- a song written by a famous singer but intended for a different one? Or any song performed by a singer/songwriter but written by another singer/songwriter?

To word it better: Someone who is known for writing and singing their own songs, but had a hit with another songwriter's song. Like Arlo Guthrie's hit version of Steve Goodman's City of New Orleans.

Yeah, sorry. Should have realized that the answer to my question was in your song, since a quick Google told me that Guthrie's was a cover.

Let me think- there's a bunch of those...

Songs sung by not written by a famous singer/songwriter

1. City of New Orleans - Arlo Guthrie (Steve Goodman)
2. Hurt - Johnny Cash (Trent Reznor)
