Whiskey In The Jar...Metallica

Thin Lizzy's version is good.

Metallica's is a 10!!!
do interpretations of traditional irish music really count as covers?

I can't agree with these two. The originals are still the best (the combination of Darlene Love and Phil Spector is unbeatable ). As for covers being better than the originals:

I second the ones of The Jimi Hendrix Experience with All Along The Watchtower (though I disagree with their version of Like A Rolling Stone being better) and The Beatles with Twist And Shout.

Some other suggestions:
The Righteous Brothers - Unchained Melody
Jasper Steverlinck - Life On Mars (and also his cover of The Chemical Brothers' The Golden Path)
Elvis Presley - Love Me Tender
Aretha Franklin - I Say A Little Prayer (although it's a very close call with the original one by Dianne Warwick)
Joss Stone - Fell In Love With A Boy
Guns 'n Roses - Knockin' On Heaven's Door
Joan Osborne - Man In The Long Black Coat
Emmylou Harris - Every Grain Of Sand
