What is your favorite cover?

There are many great covers, such as Mr. Tambourine Man,by the Byrds.  I'm curious about everyone's favorite.


There are so many great covers that I would not be able to decide a favorite. So, I'll go with a lesser known one that is currently popular on my Spotify "discovered" playlist:

Annie Keating - "Cowgirl in the Sand"




Righteous Brothers "Unchained Melody"

Roy Orbison or Nazareth: "Love Hurts" 

Willie and Paula Nelson: "Have You Ever Seen the Rain"

Nouvelle Vague: "Guns of Brixton"

Cowboy Junkies:" Thunder Road"

Klaus Nomi: "Just One Look"

Yoko Ono: "Someone Like You"


Okay the last two are sort of a joke, but you have to see the wild videos on them.

A few more:

Garcia/Grisman: "Friend of the Devil"

Ryan Adams: "Wonderwall"

Eagles: "Take it Easy"


And more of the crazy covers:

Dolly Parton: "Stairway to Heaven"

Captain Kirk: "Mr. Tambourine Man" and "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds"

Sebastian Cabot: "It Ain't Me Babe"

Andy Griffith: "House of the Rising Sun"


And an entire album:

Easy Star All-Stars: "Dub Side of the Moon"

One of my favorite albums of covers is "If I Were a Carpenter," which is a collection of different artists covering songs by the Carpenters.  I particularly like Redd Kross' "Yesterday Once More" and Shonen Knife's "Top of the World."
