1. Red Red Wine by Neil Diamond (1968)
In Red Red Wine, American singer-songwriter Neil Diamond warbles about wine being a double-edged sword. Sure it can be a salve for the broken heart, but with consequences. While Diamond composed Red Red Wine, it was UB40 that really rocketed the song to the charts with their cover. The latter includes a 'toasted verse' (think Jamaican rap) verse that is arguably the catchiest part of the song we know and love today, but this same verse is also why Red Red Wine is inaccurately attributed to Bob Marley time and again:
"You keep me rockin' all of the time
Red red wine, you make me feel so grand
I feel a million dollar when you're just in my hand
Red red wine, you make me feel so sad
Any time I see you go, it make me feel bad"
