In the film One Night in Miami, which depicts a fictionalized night of conversation among Sam Cooke, Malcolm X, Jim Brown, and Cassius Clay, Sam Cooke, played by Leslie Odom Jr., describes the impact on Bobby Womack's career when the Rolling Stones covered his "It's All Over Now" and sent it to the top of the charts.
While Womack hesitated to give his blessing for the cover, as the original songwriter, he earned - and continues to earn - publishing royalties for every use of the Rolling Stones version. Learn more about this historic example, and how cover versions can benefit songwriters.
