Not sure it's great, but it's a cover version.

Wilson Picket, Hey Jude, with Duane Allman. I really like Roger Hawkin's drumming on it.

That's excellent.  Muscle Shoals again.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

The Beatles covered one of the earliest Muscle Shoals recordings by Arthur Alexander.

The Mick Hucknall cover of the Beatles cover is very good.

It's worth checking out some of their other stuff, too.

A different take than Lowell's origional.

I like this

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAkMTu6q2pY

one of my favourite tracks by a band who I have never liked watching* but whose music I do enjoy.

*I like this particular video for the other performers strutting their stuff.

Those of you who've been watching the Arena programme on Spitting Image this evening will have heard this (it wasn't too hard to find):

A Welsh male voice choir (and a piano) singing "Blue Monday". Impressive
Wow!

Cover version? I think so. I have a thing about watching ASL/BSL versions of songs, even though I can't understand a word, ever since seeing the version of Cee Lo Green's **** You (amusingly the copyright owners complained about the track of the original so audio is now muted, a funny speeded up version is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtQ9lEuEzrc - I would have thought the SL version has similar humour to the audio)

But I really think this version of Gotye's Someone I use to know adds to the original

Meanwhile, on a smaller scale, the best live act that I saw last year:

Esther Phillip's version of Scott Heron's Home is where the hatred is

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvdnMzQGbEQ

She sings it like she means it:
"You keep saying, kick it, quit it, kick it, quit it
God, but did you ever try"

:(

More curiosity than great, but allow me to present Ne Me Quitte Pas... by Iggy Pop.

Worth it for Fabrice Eurly's piano, actually

It's a brave singer who tries to cover Gil, but that works.

Not quite a cover version but maybe an improvement on the original

She likes to do cover versions so here for contrast to Jolene she slips War Pigs into her set:

Redlight, I was at that Spooky performance.

Now, as Pingu says, it's a cover version...

Fantastic alternative take on the Dusty Springfield original. Apparently she did a whole album of them and they are all blinding !
