ain't got no soul: bad covers of great soul songs

Many a great soul track has suffered some truly egregious desecration. The single example that comes most readily to mind is Huey Lewis's rendering of Smokey Robinson's "Cruisin'". Ouch! Rememeber folks, this question does not depend on any emphemeral concepts such as race. To be sure, I'll take Dusty's version of "Son of a Preacher Man" over Aretha's any day. For that matter, limey whiteboys such as Elvis Costello and Paul Weller display a far more instinctive grasp of soul than does, for example, Bobby Brown. Don't disappoint me, I am sure that you can name some real atrocities.
Can't think of the title at the moment, but I recall Phil Collins had a hit with a Supremes tune. Gotta be right up there with Michael Bolton.
Ogsarg - it was "You can't hurry love".

How about the Soft Cell's cover of the Supremes "Where did our love go?"
I'd love to have heard a Johnny Cash version of NWA's Fuck the Police preferably done live from San Quentin!
