Cover songs that were bigger hits than the original

I am putting together a mix of songs that were bigger as covers than as originals.

Songs like Tainted Love, Crimson and Clover, You Keep Me Hanging On, I'm a Believer, Blinded by the Light, Hard to Handle, Time is On My Side, Loco-Motion, I think we're alone now, Shake it up Baby, I Want Candy and I Fought the Law.

Please put songs in the comments section.
