Fun Lovin' Criminals - We Have All The Time In The World
The original by Louis Armstrong is good too but I prefer this Fun Lovin' Criminals version. When heard in context in their 'Come Find Yourself' album it sounds even better.

Just a beautiful cover of The Band's "Whispering Pine" from Doris's stunning album.
Didn't actually know it was a cover, so checked out the The Band's original, I prefer Doris's version, but undoubtedly it's bonafide classic song which is well worth a listen.

Jolene by Norah Jones. Actually, to these ears anything sung by Norah Jones sounds great..

I couldn't think of anything until I heard the original version of Blinded By The Light by Bruce Springsteen last week. Now I don't mind a bit of Springsteen, but that's utter dross. I do hope if/when he ever sings it live he sings it like Chris Thompson.

Tom Jones & Stereophonics - Mama Told Me Not to Come
The original was by Three Dog Night.
Whereas his 'Because the Night' has much to commend it, along with the Patti Smith and 10,000 Maniacs versions. I personally prefer the Maniacs'

Ah yes! All great versions. My favourite is the Patti Smith version, but probably only because that's the version I first heard.
It's a close call as they're all very good. Patti Smith gets my vote though.
I've just realised that the Three Dog Night version was a cover aswell. Randy Newman did the original.
Metallica - Breadfan, Am I Evil and though I love the original loads I have a soft spot for Stone Cold Crazy.
Because the night, I like the Patti Smith version best but Natalie runs her close.
My favourite cover is All along the Watchtower by Jimi Hendrix, even Bob Dylan did that version at some of his concerts.
Thanks for the one about Blinded by the Light had forgotten that was Bruce Springsteen song.
Because the night, I like the Patti Smith version.
