Thecoverguy's current selection is:
Superstar
by Cher
Written by Bonnie and Delaney Bramlett plus Leon Russell in 1969. Originally the idea of Rita Coolridge who at the time was on tour with Delaney & Bonnie & Friends as a "groupue" song.

Rita broght the song to the songwriters and assisted in the harmonies but the song made only the B side of the Coming Home single called Groupie (Superstar) ultimately it finally appeared on the 1972 album D&B together.

Joe Cocker assisted by Rita Coolridge recorded it for his Mad Dogs and Englishmen LP

Also in that year Cher recorded it as part of the sessions for her 3614 Jackson Highway her 5th solo LP but it never made the cut and was released as a promo single only making the light of day to the public in 2001 on a bonus CD when the album was reissued

Ultimately the Carpenters recorded it in 1971and it became the most popular version hitting #2 in the Billboard hit 100 and #18 in the UK. It was also included on their Eponymous album released that same year.
