I first heard the cover by Blind Guardian. - Metal_Treasure
The song was originally from a German pop singer called Sandy Mölling, known mononymously as Sandy, who was part of the popular German girl group No Angels and unsuccessfully tried to pursue a solo career. Even though the song "One in a Million" was never released as a single and barely anybody still remembers the album even existed, the guys behind Hannah Montana somehow discovered the song and decided to let Miley cover it for the show, and it became far wider known. Amusingly, the line "I feel drunk but I am sober / And I'm smiling all over" was replaced a filler lyric about being lucky. - Martin_Canine
