Best Songs that Have Been Covered Incredibly Often

The Top Ten

1 Yesterday - The Beatles

Not quite, it was "covered" about 2,000 times, still the record.
The "7 million" number was the number of radio plays it had received, and that was over 20 years ago, so the number is probably close to 9-10 million now.
Mis-readings like this are how crazy rumors get started.

According to 'Guinness World Records' this song was covered seven million times in the 20th century. Official versions range from the sublime (Frank Sinatra) to the ridiculous (Wet Wet Wet and Boyz II Men). - waldo
