Heard a song on FOX's American Idol and wondered what the original was like, who performed it first (or had the biggest hit with it), and where you can buy it? Wonder no more... if it's from the Fifties, Sixties, or Seventies, this list will tell you all you need to know. Click on the song title to hear a clip of the original version, the original artist's name to see their profile, or "Buy it!" to compare prices on its CD. NOTE: This list is only for the purpose of identifying oldies songs on American Idol; if what you see isn't listed here, try our Top 40 guide.
