    A lot of classical music is in public domain, so some artists have used the melody and just added words.
    Cheeky buggers then claim they wrote it.
    There's loads, a few in this video, but there are more, as seen in the comments.

    Eric Carmen is mentioned at the end of the clip in the original post. It tells how he got caught in breach of copyright.

    I prefer the Rachmaninov version personally.
