Song Had Rebirth After Rebirth

There is a song that made it to the Billboard TOP 40 in either The US or the UK in the 1960's, 1970's, 1980's 1990's and 2000's, a total of six different times by six different performers.  According to wikipedia it is the ONLY song to achieve that distinction. 

Any thoughts or guesses ?

This is probably pretty hard although I am fairly sure that it is a song that will sound familiar to most people. 

I will post the answer some time tomorrow.

You know your pop music sir. 

EVERLASTING LOVE -  Love Affair

According to the wikipedia article about the song, Everlasting Love, written by Buzz Cason and Mac Gayden, is the only song to have charted in the Billboard TOP 40, in either the US, the UK, or both,  in the 60',s 70's, 80's, 90's and 2000's .

Robert Knight - US # 13 - 1967

Love Affair - UK #1   - 1968

Carl Carlton - US # 6 - 1974

Rex Smith and Rachel Sweet - US #32  - 1981

Gloria Estefan -  US # 27, UK # 19  - 1995

Jamie Cullum -  UK # 20 - 2004

I would say this is the best known and most heard version in the US

Jamie Cullum's version of this song is so playful and smooth.

Just prior to the release of Jamie Cullum's 2004 version, Buzz Cason theorized on his composition's appeal: "It's an uplifting song, with a real positive feeling, and it's danceable. I think people get a lift from it. When it comes to that chorus it just really lets go." [1]

It is telling that not many of the cover artists changed the music arrangement!
