Famous Songs Written By Other Celebrities

Originally written by: Neil Diamond.

When you hear “Red Red Wine,” you immediately think UB40 … but their version is actually a cover of a Neil Diamond song. In 1969, Jamaican-born singer Tony Tribe recorded a reggae version of the song. When UB40 took a stab at the song, they had no idea it was written by Neil Diamond. One band member told the Financial Times, “Even when we saw the writing credit which said ‘N. Diamond,’ we thought it was a Jamaican artist called Negus Diamond.”
