The Beatles
W&M By Paul McCartney In 1965
The melody for "Yesterday" came to McCartney in a dream. He didn't know if it was original or an old jazz song. He said, "For about a month I went round to people in the music business and asked them whether they had ever heard it before. Eventually it became like handing something in to the police. I thought if no one claimed it after a few weeks then I could have it."

Village People (1978)
W&M By Jacques Morali, Henry Belolo, and Victor Willis
From Wikipedia: The dance originated on Dick Clark's American Bandstand. During the January 6, 1979 episode, which featured the Village People as guests throughout the hour, the dance was performed by audience members while the group performed "YMCA." Clark then said to Willis that he would like to show him something. Clark again played the song with the audience doing the YMCA hand gestures. Willis immediately picked up on the dance and mimicked the hand movements back at the audience as other Village People members stared at him with puzzled looks. Clark then turned to Willis and said, "Victor, think you can work this dance into your routine?" Willis responded, "I think we're gonna have to."

Michael Jackson (1995)
W&M by R. Kelly
"You Are Not Alone" is the second single from Michael Jackson's album HIStory. The R&B ballad's composition has been attributed by R. Kelly in response to difficult times in his personal life. He then forwarded a bare demo tape to Jackson, who liked the song and decided to produce it with Kelly. Jackson's interest in the song was also linked to recent events in his personal life. The song was later covered by R. Kelly himself as a hidden track on his tenth solo studio album Love Letter.
The vast majority of critical reaction to "You Are Not Alone" was positive, although it did not attain unanimous praise. The song was the recipient of Grammy and American Music Award nominations. The corresponding music video, which featured Jackson and his then-wife Lisa Marie Presley was also notable for its scenes of semi-nudity.
Commercially, the song was a significant success. It holds a Guinness World Record as the first song in the 37-year history of the Billboard Hot 100 to debut at number one; it was later certified platinum by the RIAA. The song peaked highly in all major markets. "You Are Not Alone" was Michael Jackson's last number one hit song in the United States during his lifetime.

Roy Orbison (1989)
W&M by Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, & Tom Petty
"You Got It" is a song from Roy Orbison's album, Mystery Girl (1989). The song reached number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the adult contemporary chart, returning Orbison to the Top 10 for the first time in 25 years. It also hit number three on the UK Singles Chart in the spring of 1989. This was a few months after Orbison's death of a heart attack on December 6, 1988, at the age of 52. While "You Got It" was Orbison's last hit single in the United States, the single, "I Drove All Night", made the UK Top 5 later in 1992. In addition, it was his only solo top ten hit on the Hot Country Songs charts, peaking at #7. Although it is an Orbison solo single, Orbison's fellow Traveling Wilburys bandmates, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne, co-wrote the song and played instruments on the record.
