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.
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.

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.
