Rockin’ All Over the World

Written and first recorded by John Fogerty (US #27 1975).
Hit version by Status Quo (UK #3/IRE #1 1977).

From the wiki: “‘Rockin’ All Over the World’ made its debut on Fogerty’s second solo album, John Fogerty, in 1975. Status Quo recorded their own, heavier arrangement of the song for their 1977 album Rockin’ All Over the World.

“At Live Aid, in 1985, Status Quo began their set (and thus the event itself, being the opening band) with ‘Rockin’ All Over the World’ which first became an unofficial anthem for the event when the BBC used it to advertise their TV coverage.”
