Nick Cave - In The Ghetto

Kate Bush - Rocket Man

June Tabor - Don't Think Twice

+ 1 for Jeff Buckley Hallelujah and for his version of Lilac Wine

In the spirit of mutual support I will +1 your In The Ghetto, although also like El Vez's In The Bhario

RE: Covers that are better than the original

Frankie goes to Hollywood did a superior version of "Born to run" on the PleasureDome LP.

Also it would normally be sacrilege to cover a smiths tune but Dum Dum Girls did a great version of "There is a light which never goes out"

I have both, and enjoy both, but I think the White Stripes cover of Jolene is better:

Marie Queenie Lyons - Fever  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHOnM4yDOrc

Patti Drew does a good version, but nothing beats this

Incredible Bongo Band - Apache  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjiU2YAlYKY

You'll have heard a mix of this on an advert

Johnny Keating - Jesus Christ Superstar  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdATQX6vf1M

Not bad for the guy who did the theme from Z Cars, and just listen to that Moog go

I used to not like it when I first heard it but now I think it's awesome!  Axl's voice when he is singing it live is just brilliant!
