Good ol' AllMusic gives us three pages of possible "Come Together"s!

...although most are just covers of the Beatles song, but hell, covers count too!

Ah, shit, bad link.. well just go to allmusic.com and search for "Come Together" and click on the "song" radio button choice.

Easy for me.
"Come Together" by Spiritualized (remixed by Two Lone Swordsmen)

I was just fucking with your head, DB.

Sorry, but "Stardust" wins by a mile (jazz-standard from (I think) the 20s). 1712 matches by AMG, though many are the same recording.

Still, I heard on tv-program somewhere that it sure is the most recorded song in history, makes sense when you think of it.

So, for ORIGINALS:
Beatles
Spiritualized
Primal Scream
Blur (yes, off "Leisure" of all albums)
Danny Tenaglia(?)

surely the Stone Roses had a song of this title somewhere, right?

MC5!!

So, for ORIGINALS

About half that list doesn't deserve the term. ;-)

I used to like Aerosmith's rendition of the Beatles' standard, until I saw the dreaded film from whence it came....featuring a scene wherein Boston's Bad Boys get the snots beaten outta them by the fuckin' Bee Gees and Peter Frampton? I mean, what the fuck?

Sisters of Mercy have an original "Come Together" from 1992-ish that still hasn't made it onto an official release, also.

Primal Scream win by a million billion miles

stevem (blueski), Sunday, 11 January 2004 01:58 (sixteen years ago) link

but which Primal Scream version - UK version or American version?

UK is a Weatherall production - very druggy with narcoleptic beats, while American version is more rockist with break beat drums (if I remember correctly.

I'll take the UK version

yes, i don't like the "kisssss meeeee" version at all

Edge of Darkness ~ Come Together

gareth (gareth), Sunday, 11 January 2004 15:36 (sixteen years ago) link

Primal Scream wins narrowly. Then Beatles, then Spiritualized a distant third, then Blur waaaaaaaay in last place. I love Blur, but that song is possibly the worst song on their worst album.
