What's the best cover arrangement you've ever heard!

Was listening to Manfred Mann's rendition of Blinded By The Light, and was thinking it might be the best cover I've heard, so I'm wondering what ehMacers thought...what is the best cover you've heard.....

For give not pegging a youtube link but my mini was down for awhile, so here it is...done live, which I prefer.

Manfred Mann - Blinded by the Light - YouTube

I used to work with the lead singer for this local band but I love their cover of Streets have no name...

Where the Streets Have No Name by Dust Rhinos

Pet Shop Boys for Always on my Mind and Pukka Orchestra for Listen to the Radio. My criteria for this is that when I hear the original, I find myself wanting to listen to the cover version instead. That's how I feel when I hear Springsteen's Blinded by the Light.

First one that springs to mind is Santana's cover of 'Black Magic Woman'.

Holy Cole has done dozens of covers that I've found really enjoyable; the Beatles "I've Just Seen a Face" sticks in my mind, but she's also covered some of Sheryl Crow's stuff very well, not to mention many old jazz classics.

She's got a great voice, a very creative musical mind, and she works with brilliant musicians, so she's pretty consistent.

Stevie Wonder's cover of Lennon/McCartney's "We can work it out".

I only like cover versions when they don't sound exactly like the original and they add something.

I just heard this week-end on CBC radio Jann Arden's version of Petula Clark's Downtown. I think it may actually be better than the original.

That is excellent. K.D. Lang has done some other great covers over the years as well. She's another great artist.

Personally I much prefer John Cale's version.
