What song made it on the American Top 40 chart by two different artists in the 70's?
The answer is "I'd Like To Teach the World to Sing" by the New Seekers and the Hillside Singers.
"Because the New Seekers were initially unavailable to record the new version, a group calling itself the Hillside Singers recorded it with a country-and-western flavor and released it as a single. When the New Seekers began an American tour several weeks latter, they re-recorded the new lyrics and released a second single. Both version sold well - in fact, at one point, the New Seekers version was listed among the top ten songs on the American pop music charts while the Hillside Singers version was number thirteen."
