Eric has it! "Repetition", from David Bowie's Lodger, later covered by the Au Pairs.

Whew! Congratulations, Eric, and thanks to everyone who pursued this to the end.

Repetition - David Bowie

Here's my left field guess:

David Bowie, "Station to Station"

I had no idea so many songs could fit the clue at this point.

It's not "Red Red Wine" by Neil Diamond or "Rebel Rebel" by David Bowie. But it is one of those two musicians.

I assure you that you will agree with this musician's importance.

Shoot, I didn't even think of Bowie. I think you got it, because I think Duran Duran did a version of it a while back.

Rebel, rebel was covered by Birminghams also called post-punk band Duran Duran

Well I'm gonna go with another one, Neal Diamonds "Red Red Wine" also done by Birmingham's own UB40.

Rebel, rebel by David Bowie?

"The puzzle song is by one of rock's most famous and influential figures, "

Ah, shoot, to you guys that would be somebody like Elvis Costello! To me, that person would be Tony Iommi. Or to deconstruct it further, a tie between J.S. Bach and Robert Johnson. Thus the complete fail that has been me. But since the sound clip obviously doesn’t help me, I’ll keep trying with the clues . . . .It’s not like I could be working or anything . . .

The puzzle song is by one of rock's most famous and influential figures, and album track from an album that was not perhaps one of his most commercially successful but is one of a run of critically acclaimed albums.

The puzzle song was also covered as a single by an influential Birmingham post-punk band a few years later.

#4: "Mirror Mirror," Diana Ross (thanks for the Sembello clue, Scraps)

I can't believe this group didn't get the Jellyfish song right away. That's what I get for leaving town on a Friday.

Yeah, I figured that one was a strech . . .
