As for other suggestions:
Keane To be fair, I haven't heard their version, but I can't imagine why With or Without You would need the elevator music touch.
Pete Murray: This great suburban middle age dinner party troubadour would simply make Running to Stand Still sound like, well, a Pete Murray song. No good can come from that.
Don't say that about Pete... especially since I play golf with the man.

Nah, no bullshit, I really do think he'd do an awesome version of RTSS. I guess it depends on whether you find him boring, or awesome, like I do.

I like your Arcade Fire suggestion, though.

No, it wouldn't ruin the song; it would just be a rendition you didn't care for.

Personally, I'm trying to think of another big sound band that could do it and can't come up with one, at least one that could do a unique arrangement but stay true to the song at the same time.

thanks for sticking up for my choice. Honestly, it isn't as Keane-y as you would expect. Much more subdued and you lose the theatrics that Bono gives the song sometimes.

But if you have Coldplay do One Tree Hill, I'm going to cry. You need to have soul to sing that song properly. Coldplay will turn it into a light-bulb commercial.

His singing would ruin the cover version song for me, which otherwise, covered by another artist, may have been a cover version I would have enjoyed, e.g., Pet Shop Boys cover of "Streets".

By this point, almost nothing could ever ruin the original Joshua Tree version of "Streets" for me.

Well know that I know which version you do enjoy I would have to whole heartedly hope for Smashing Pumpkins instead.
