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.


Depends on the genre.

Easy Listening - The Sounds of Silence (Simon&Garfunkel/Disturbed)

Folk - All Along The Watchtower (Bob Dylan/Hendrix)

Metal - Into The Void (Black Sabbath/Exhorder)

Instrumental - Little Wing (Hendrix/SRV - Live at El Mocambo)

Really hard decisions here, so I'm going to have to go with 2, sorry about that!

I Put A Spell On You - Debbie Davis, Kenny Neal & Tab Benoit, this is mostly Tab Benoit - a really talented guy

Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You - The Jeff Beck Group

Plus, Ry Cooder is the king of cover songs, too many to pick from there.

@bigtwin - thanks for the Tom Scott cover, that was killer!
