A version by US soul band Charme was released in 1979 featuring an uncredited vocal by Luther Vandross. The single was re-released a few years later after the vocalist's rise in popularity and he was then credited as the featured artist. It remains a popular version in rare groove circles.

US disco/jazz-funk band Side Effect released their own version in 1980. It was on their "After The Rain" album. It made it to 77 in the US R&B charts.

In 1999, a cover version by Eric Benét (with Faith Evans on background vocals) was released as the first single from Benét's album A Day in the Life. Their version reached number two in New Zealand.

MC Lyte used this song as the musical foundation of "Poor Georgie", from her 1991 album Act Like You Know. The song was used by Devin the Dude in his song "Georgy" from album "The Dude (Devin the Dude album)" and by Guru in "Kissed the World" from album "Jazzmatazz, Vol. 4: The Hip-Hop Jazz Messenger: Back to the Future" also.

In 2002, Japanese musician Ringo Sheena formed the band Yokoshima (邪) solely to play cover of Georgy Porgy.

In 2005, guitarist Nils offered a rendition of this song from his popular Contemporary jazz radio Baja/TSR Records released album, 'Pacific Coast Highway.'[4] Its also sampled on the remix of Joe's "All Or Nothing" single from his 1994 album of the same name called the Georgy Porgy remix.

In 2009 a rearranged instrumental rendition was also done by Japanese artist DJ Deckstream[5] on his Music Castle album.[6]
