Patti Smith: Redondo Beach [1975]
Morrissey: Redondo Beach [2005]

Continuing with the R&R HOF nonsense, this was the first original Patti Smith song you'd ever hear had picked up the record the day Horses was released, and hadn't previously heard anything from punk rock's poet laureate. (The first song on the album was not an original song, obviously. Rodondo Beach was the second.) Morrissey released his own version of the classic thirty years later.

The Van Halen installment is here.
The R.E.M. installment is here.

Buy Horses.
