More than 1:

"Barrett's Privateers" by Stan Rogers
"Great Atomic Power" by the Louvin Brothers
I may have some actual duplicates (same song/same artist/same albums), but I think those are the only ones with multiple takes.

More than 7:

None, but I'll be interested to see what other folks do.

I'm not going to answer your first question, because there are 670. (There are definitely some duplicate recordings in there, but I'm not about to go looking for them.)

For the second, there are two: "Living In The Past" by Jethro Tull, and "Jack Straw" by the Grateful Dead, at 8 each. Three versions of the former are on their 25th anniversary box set.

More than 1 version? Something like 10% of the cds I have were released specifically for that purpose (singles or remix albums)

More than 7 versions? Still more than is reasonable to count.

Just looking at The Orb only (who admittedly used to be really remix happy), I see Asylum (7 versions/mixes), Toxygene (10), Blue Room (7), A Huge Ever Growing Brain That Rules From The Centre Of The Ultraworld (7), Little Fluffy Clouds (10), & Perpetual Dawn (7). (and there's a lot that only weighed in at 6 so didn't make the cut).

Rhythm & Sound - See Mi Yah (22 versions/remixes) and
Future Sound of London - Papua New Guinea (17 versions)
are probably the top winners.

I have like a dozen version of Paranoia, in various Dance Dance Revolution games.
catcatya on March 8th, 2011 06:35 pm (UTC)
a lot :)

More than 7 - maybe none? I have >=4 of a bunch of songs, but not 7
Doug Orleansdougo on March 8th, 2011 06:49 pm (UTC)
I probably have a lot of 7+ers, but the first that comes to mine is the CD single of LA Style's James Brown Is Dead, which has 8 different mixes of the song. Plus a "Take Outs" track so you can make your own mix.
Doug Orleansdougo on March 8th, 2011 06:49 pm (UTC)
Also, why 7?

It seemed like a number that would indicate a slightly obsessive interest in a song, but not an excessively high bar.

I have more than one remix of too many songs to list. After all, my favorite artist is Oceanlab, and ALL of their songs have been remixed more than once.

As for the 'more than seven', I think those would be 'Popcorn' and 'Moonlight Shadow'.

Within my CD collection, there don't seem to be any songs I have 7 of-- the most is 6 ("Rowche Rumble" by The Fall and "Ambitious" by Wire).

In my mp3 collection there are some bands I have tons of bootlegs by, so there are a lot of songs by four or five bands that I must have 7 performances of.
Mouseketeer Stigmatatrom on March 8th, 2011 07:19 pm (UTC)
Way more then 7
House of The Rising Sun

I am disqualifying myself by virtue of having many Moxy Fruvous concerts on CD. I love "King of Spain", for example, but I didn't choose to buy lots of versions of it, they just played it at most shows.

Two immediately spring to mind because I've made a mix CD of each with a distinct version for every track. They're two of my favorite jazz tunes, Caravan and A Night in Tunisia. The wide variety of interpretations of each is pretty impressive.

*laugh* LaRoux, In For The Kill

As you might imagine, this poll was inspired by that conversation :)

I have just increased my count of In For The Kill tracks substantially! :D :D

I think I have somewhere around 35 different versions of "Hallelujah".
Ellen: facepalmkeyne on March 9th, 2011 11:16 pm (UTC)
Oh, man, I thought I'd win with 27 :-)

I blame one of audiography's periodic "cover songs" theme weeks for most of them. :)

I just spent an hour on a conference call, and scrolled through my mp3 collection during that otherwise wasted time.

I'm not going to answer the more than 1, because I thought there would be too many to list, and stopped counting around 50 somewhere in the Gs or Hs.

For 'more than 7' there's only 1 song I have in iTunes that fits the criteria: Oh Canada.
But since iTunes has only a small fraction of my music collection (I've probably only ripped about a third of my CDs, I have about as many tapes as CDs, and a whole bunch of vinyl as well), I'm going to list a few songs that I know I have more than 7 of:
City of New Orleans (5-Steve Goodman, 3-Arlo Guthrie (one with other people), I probably have others)
Star Spangled Banner (all by different musicians)
various Christmas carols

I'm not going to go through my entire music collection right now, but there are probably a bunch of stuff by Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Peter Paul & Mary, Bob Dylan, Steve Goodman (besides City of New Orleans), Paul Simon, and the Beatles that I have more than 7 versions of.
