House of the rising Sun was a traditional folk/blues song - author unknown. Bob Dylan's version is far superior to the Animals - however, the song is supposed to be sung from a woman's perspective - so, neither of these versions make any sense.

9. Rhythm of the Rain - has-been aussie ex-heartthrob popster, Jason Donovan did a single of this name - am guessing it was a cover - apparently the 60's original was the Cascades.

Err... that was "2000 miles"

I think Chet Atkins did a ditty of that name ("five hundred miles")...don't know no more.

Hehe four hours later and I already have quite a few answers.

Actually concerning the versions, I suppose that the most popular/well known version will do.
I know that House of the Rising Sun is a traditional song, it was written around 1929-1930. One of the shows that I directed a few years back had a young lady singing it and with her blues voice it sounded great.
It was also done in french by Johnny Halliday as 'Le Penitencier'.

Actually I should be kicked because 'Killing me softly' was written by a student from my old school and I have vague memories of seeing her perform it way back when (I was around 8-9 years old).

Thanks for all so far, now to compile the first list

Looks like this:
1. Killing Me Softly With His Song - Roberta Flack
2. Green Green Grass Of Home - Tom Jones
3. Casablanca
4. Edelweiss - Julie Andrews
5. How Can I Tell Her (About You)
6. Release Me - Englebert Humperdink
7. Summer Kisses Winter Tears
8. Tennessee Waltz - Spike Jones and the City Slickers or Patti Page
9. Rhythm Of The Rain - The Cascades
10. Five Hundred Miles - Peter, Paul and Mary
11. Crying In The Chapel
12. Half Breed
13. I Can't Stop Loving You
14. A Place In The Sun
15. And I Love You So
16. Too Young
17. Before The Next Teardrop Falls
18. More Than I Can Say
19. Bye, Bye Love - Everly Brothers
20. Try To Remember
21. Que Sera Sera - Doris Day
22. Changing Partners
23. More
24. Summer Wine - Nancy Sinatra
25. Morning Has Broken - Cat Stevens
26. Moon River - Instrumental by Henri Mancini
27. The House Of The Rising Sun - The Animals (most well known)
28. The End Of The World - Skeeter Davis or Herman's Hermits

REM's song is "It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)"

I know remakes for many of these songs, but I imagine that's not what you're looking for.

I think Five Hundred Miles might be "I'm Gonna Be (500 miles)" by the Proclaimers, on their Sunshine on Leith album.

Certainly the theme of the song seems to fit in with the rest of the list.

Charisma,
I must admit that I have a very eclectic taste in music. I listen mostly to Heavy Metal and Hard Rock, but also enjoy 50's musicals, have been known to warble joyfully along with an old Music Hall classic or a Beatles song.

Few things though, I absolutly loath Techno, hate (C)Rap and despise those manufactured, blonde bimbos, boys bands at al.
