Get listing I guess
man who sold the world - nirvana
this is all i can think of right now. i will also mention though that nina simone's covers are all really nice
wuthering heights - ukulele orchestra of great brittian
wild is the wind - nina simone
satisfaction (i can't get no) - bjork and PJ harvey
mack the knife - Ella fitzgerald
teardrops - newton faulkner
its prbably something different but these are one's that i can think of now
Pet Shop Boys - Always On My Mind (also: Go West)
Primal Scream - Slip Inside This House
Cat Power - (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction
Sparklehorse feat. Thom Yorke - Wish You Were Here
And a few more...
The Make-Up! - Hey Joe
Six By Seven - Young Man's Stride
Shearwater - The Rainbow
Rachael Unthank And The Winterset - Sea Song
Top 5 after more thought.
But Hendrix's version of "All Along the Watchtower", I think, is by far the greatest ever cover version.
It blew Dylan away... to the extent that he started playing it in the same style as Jimi (minus the obvious guitar sections).
Velvet Underground - Crimson and Clover
First two that come to my head.
