There's a version by Sarah Slean on an album called Pink Floyd Redux, which is a covers album done entirely by women. I'm a big Sarah Slean fan, so I think it's awesome. It's got an ambient vibe to it, but vocally, it doesn't stray far from the original version, imo.

When it comes to comfortably numb it's all about the solos. Same with Mother and Time. I tend to tune in only when Gilmour begins to dominate.

It's featured in the movie The Departed.
Hey yeah that reminds me of another question - does anyone know who the two guitarists on that version are?
Levon Helm's drumming on that kicks ass.

Snowy White (who is incredible - he played for Roger on his In The Flesh tour and is playing for him on his current tour) and Rick DiFonzo.

They also have incredible lyrics.
