Default Many Versions Of Favorite Songs

As I was checking my music library, I noticed that I've collected many different versions of songs that are among my favorites. For example, I have nine different versions of the song "Gentle On My Mind," including versions by John Hartford (the song's writer), Glen Campbell (the hit version), Roger Miller (my favorite version), and Leonard Nimoy (picked this one out of curiosity, it's an interesting version). This has occured with other favorite songs too, like "The Winner Takes It All" (13 versions) and "Alone Again (Naturally)" (11 versions).

I've found that when I like one song, I tend to seek out other versions of the song to get a different perspective on it. With many songs, each artist does it in a different way. For example, although both Glen Campbell and Roger Miller did "Gentle On My Mind," Miller's version has a more rambling feeling and he sings it with a more world-weary tone that suits the song well.

Have you had a similar experience to mine with your favorite songs?
