The Fuggees Killing me Softly, to me is
better than the Roberta Flack version.
Anyone think of any?

Somebody could say Little Wing by SRV, instead of Hendrix, but that's really up to the listener.

For a long time I didn't know All Along the Watchtower was a Bob Dylan cover. That was a definite improvment from the original.

'No Quarter'- led zeppelin covered by tool, even though led zeppelin's version is sick as hell tool has a way of bringing a lot of atmoshphere to their songs.

That techno group and that covered "If You Could Read My Mind" by Gordon Lightfoot, i dont agree with you on the no quater thing, tool is good, but jimmy page is the only 1 who can play that song right.

Knocking on heaven's door Guns 'n' Roses = better than Dylan's version, imo.

Opeth does a pretty kick ass version of Iron Maidens "Remember Tomorrow"
Death's cover of Judas Priest "Painkiller".... I think it's way better than the original.

i might like Gary Jules version of Mad World (Tears For Fears) better, but the original was damn good too.
