Grammys: Most awarded songs of all time

When people think of the Grammys, one of the most common images that comes to mind is of an artist who just swept cradling four or five Grammys in their arms. And while most of these sweeps are for a combination of songs and an album, some musicians have managed to make individual songs iconic enough to warrant four or five Grammys all on their own.

Albeit a short list, some recordings have the distinction of winning that many trophies. Here’s a list of the most awarded songs in Grammy history. For the sake of clarity, this list focuses on specific recordings, meaning that covers of the same songs are not counted on the final tally.
