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.


I kinda like Guns and Roses covers, such as "Live and Let Die" and "knockin on Heaven's Door."

There are some people whose voice I like a lot, but, when they cover favorite songs, it almost hurts to hear the travesty.  The ultimate one woman wrecking crew for me is Linda Ronstadt:

"Alison" (Elvis Costello)

"Carmelita" and "Hasten Down the Wind" (and a whole bunch of other Zevon songs)

"Blue Bayou" (Orbison)


Plenty of great covers of Leonard Cohen songs.  Among my favorite:

Concrete Blonde: "Everybody Knows"

Jeff Buckley: "Hallelujah"

R.E.M.: "First We Take Manhattan"
