Not really sure the All the Young Dudes counts as a cover...I believe Bowie actually wrote All the Young Dudes for Mott the Hoople, but then he played it himself.

Yeah he wrote the song to prevent Mott from splitting up, but its still a Bowie song performed by another artist, lets not spilt hairs, hold on a minute while I go part the salt from the pepper on my plate!

Yeah but salt and pepper are quite different

Probably my favourite Bowie cover is Life on Mars with Neil Hannon and Yann Tiersen.
