Aerosmith - The Train Kept A Rollin'
Foo Fighters w/ Brian May - Have A Cigar
Queen - The Great Pretender
They Might Be Giants - Istanbul (Not Constantinople)
Eric Clapton - Layla [because for whatever reason I can't stand the Derek and the Dominoes version; this still assumes someone can "cover" their own work in a different incarnation]


I'll try to think of some more.

That's all I've got for the moment.

Those are two of U2's worst covers (certainly Paint It Black) and don't even come near the originals.

That's a cover?
I thought it was an original...
Oh well. It is a great fun song.

Nilsson's version of Badfinger's 'Without You', but this is contentious.

no, it's not contentious. you're right.
badfinger at that time said that nilsson recorded the version they wish they could have done.
cool tidbit...
badfinger were in the studio recording their next album when they heard a dude in another room recording their song...it was nilsson. they were pumped...

But I LIKE Badfinger's version, because I can sing along to it but Nilsson is so damn difficult to sing along to screw that they say, it's all about what I say.

Next, Mariah Carey.

U2's Lovetown era "All Along the Watchtower" seriously smokes all other version.
