Enjoyed it very much. Thank you.

Will note that I tripped on a verb which may be a somewhat technical term in its industry (will ask about it tomorrow) but I was not headed for the top 10 anyway.

Brilliant WP! (as is its follow-on "Time In" which I have just completed),

I wish to question the use of the verb "cover" to mean "release a version of a song." I think this was first time I'd ever encountered that. Is this a commonly known term?

The puzzle was Cyndi Lauper's after has been covered by many different artists.
Her song Time After Time has been recorded by such diverse artists as Miles Davis doing an instrumental version to numerous country, rock and R and B singers.
A cover version is a recording originally released by someone else hence the phrase to "cover a song". Sorry it tripped you up, but glad to be able to add a new vocabulary word.

I'm sorry forgot to mention that it is a commonly used term and is in fact used in the Wikipedia article about the song.

Thank you. Common or not, I did learn a new meaning which may be useful here as there are so many musical references.

Loved both Time In and Time Out! Quite a challange for a newcomer, but I'm getting the hang of it. Thanks!
