Cocker was probably best known for his 1968 version of the Beatles’ “With a Little Help From My Friends,” which also served as the theme song to the hit TV series “The Wonder Years.” He performed that song live at Woodstock in 1969, along with the tracks “Something’s Comin’ On,” “Let’s Go Get Stoned” and “I Shall Be Released.”

He had another hit in 1975 with the single, “You Are So Beautiful,” and in 1983 picked up a Grammy Award for “Up Where We Belong,” a duet with Jennifer Warnes.
