Of course I Wanna Go Back is a remake - there's no "technically" about it. Not being a hit has nothing to do with it.

As for your examples, when I think of Because The Night - I think of Springsteen just as much as I do Patti Smith, just as I do Fleetwood Mac & Santana with Black Magic Woman. I'll give you Every Time You Go Away as it was HUGE for Paul Young but it's still a "remake".

Oh, and Billy is not a person.
