    The song was written and recorded by Bruce Springsteen in 1973. But Manfred Mann's version became a hit (unlike Springsteen's). The track reached No. 1 on both the Billboard Hot 100 and the Canadian RPM charts. And Manfred Mann's version is Springsteen's only No. 1 single as a songwriter on the Hot 100; his highest charting single as a solo performer was "Dancing In The Dark" in 1984, which reached No. 2 on the Hot 100 and Canadian RPM Chart,

    In the Light
    Artist: Led Zeppelin

    The lyrics for the song were written by Josephine Carringer and Bernice Idins and the music was by Saxie Dowell. Or so the Wikipedia story goes. The real story is that Dowell, a sax player in Hal Kemp’s orchestra, "borrowed” the song from three University of Tennessee sorority sisters, Carringer, Idins and Mary Elizabeth Bomar. He had met the three while visiting and performing in Knoxville in February 1939, where they sang their "Fish Song" for him. In March of that year, Kemp and the orchestra recorded “Three Little Fishies” on the Victor label with a trio of singers called The Smoothies.

    Covered (like every other popular hit) by the Andrews Sisters:
