As we have no game today I thought I'd start this thread... and it's sister one, too.  Only rule is to post both the cover and original for comparison.  Also, just because you prefer the cover doesn't mean you think the original is shit.

How odd. I was just playing this cover version this morning, which I think is actually better than the original:

Most of the stuff on Kicking Against the Pricks stands up well when compared to the originals.

No-one but Reg remembers the 1968 original, but this cover is gorgeous. Ironically, the two divas got on so badly they couldn't bear to stick around to make a video:

Hurt by JC would definately be up there for me.

Here is a good one. Written by Prince for The Family originally.

I only discovered this song this year....and it was the Johnny Cash version I heard first. I was gobsmacked to discover that it was a cover version... the JC version sounded so incredibly personal and heart rending, I couldn't believe it wasn't the original... amazing song...blows the NIN version out the water...
