What are some of the best and favorite Cover Songs of all time?   I'll start with the Queen Mothers of covers.

Mr. Tambourine Man - They Byrds

All Along the Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix

 

One of my personal favorites.

Iron Man - The Cardigans

I'm a child of the 60's, and love Shocking Blue, but I love this version, too.

Clarifying question: do you mean "better than the original"?

Or "the best cover of an original"?

Just good covers of originals.   Judging "better than the original" is just too subjective.   Looking for good music, not arguments.

Bootstraps doing Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance with Somebody". 

Never realized how sad the lyrics were until I heard this version.

Saw these guys open for Tyler Childers. Pretty mind blowing reimagining on Bruce Springsteen.

Not sure this would qualify as a "cover" because it is a VERY traditional song, but they play it at break-neck speed

Sailor's Hornpipe - Mike Oldfield
