What Song Do You Have The Most Versions Of?

I was wondering if we could find out which single song do you have the most different versions of in your CD collection.
For me, I think it's probably All Along The Watchtower. I have Dylan's original version on The Essential Bob Dylan, the Unplugged version, Jimi Hendrex's version on a greatest hits disc, U2's live version on Rattle & Hum and Dave Matthews Band's on Listener Supported. That's five different versions. I'm sure many of you can do a lot better than that, though....

I must have over 30 versions (each) of Beethoven's 5th and 9th symphonies, although I'd have to go back and count to be exactly sure

With all the live Deep Purple albums I've got, it's probably a tie between 'Smoke on the Water' and 'Highway Star'.
