I am still struggling with even calling "I Wanna Go Back" a remake. I mean, technically you are right because someone else did it before him but it was never a hit song before his version.

A few other examples would be

Paul Young - Every Time You Go Away vs. Hall and Oates
Patti Smith - Because The Night vs. Bruce Springsteen
Santana - Black Magic Woman vs. Fleetwood Mac


The masses will never think of "I wanna Go Back" as a Billy Satellite song anymore than they will relate the songs above with their original artists. Even less, since Billy never even made it particularly big as an artist.

Most people think of remakes as a popular song like "I will Always Love You". The original was a hit and then about 20 years later a remake was a hit and it is therefore associated with both artists.

Most people have never heard of Billy or his version. But I do appreciate you pointing it out because as you said, I have now learned something new today! :)
