UB40 Red Red Wine:

Red Red Wine is a soft rock song originally written and recorded in 1967 by American singer Neil Diamond, for his second studio album, Just for You.

In 1983, English band UB40 recorded a reggae fusion version of the song produced by Ray Falconer for their album of cover versions, Labour of Love.

Well, UB40 is excellent with cover versions, as their version reached the number-one spot on both the US Billboard Hot 100 as well as in the UK –where it was certified platinum. It also topped the charts in Canada, New Zealand and Netherlands.

Titbit: Neil Diamond has revealed this is his favourite cover of the song.
