Quiz: Which charted higher - the cover or the original?

It's not about who sang it first - it's about how high they took it!

As the saying goes, history doesn't repeat itself, but it often rhymes – and in music, having another go at a classic tune can mean huge chart success.

Cover versions are a great way to introduce a new generation to a brilliant song, and many pop acts have paid homage to some of their favourite tunes, but the question is, can you match the success of the original or, even better… top it?

Test your chart smarts in our quiz, which gives you two takes on one song – all you have to do is work out which version climbed highest in the Official Singles Chart.

Should be easy right? There's only one way to find out – take the test now.
