Song Titles Used By Prince And Someone Else

I've noticed a number of Prince song titles were used by other artists first.

Can you add to these? (These are official releases. Let's not do boots.)

.

"For You" - Bruce Springsteen
"Temptation" - New Order

"Round And Round" - New Order
"Push" - The Cure

"Gold" - Spandau Ballet

"Space" - New Model Army

"Cinnamon Girl" - Neil Young
"High" - The Cure

"Planet Earth" - Duran Duran
"Time" - Pink Floyd

.

(And before anyone starts ranting and raving that Prince didn't steal these titles...I know. I am just pointing out titles of Prince songs that were somewhere else first.)

"Dirty Mind" - Jeff Beck (Jeff Beck's actually came second, but it's such a cool song, I had to mention it.)

the most beautiful girl, charlie rich had a hit with his song in the 70's. I just checked the "in the world" part wasn't part of the official title.

Interesting. Why would he do that? neutral
