    You mean the cover which became more famous than the original?

    Black Magic Woman, original by Peter Green, but Santana made it famous.

    That is a matter of opinion. Maybe H did more record sales but that does not mean it was objectively better musically speaking.

    You seem to be using the word "own" in a peculiar sense, unrelated to copyright or authorship.

    Which of these is better:

    YouTube

    YouTube

    Lou Reed of the VU wrote it, and later said the DW's cover was better.

    Nothing is objectively better musically speaking, when you're talking about pop covers. Not even Bieber covering the Beatles is objectively bad, even though you're objectively an idiot if you subjectively prefer the younger mop-top. When the choice is betwern Hendrix and Clapton, anyone who speaks of "objective" is a fool.
