    David Bowie's "Sound and Vision" remix that was played to death in that Sony commerical during the Sony Open. I love that version.

    Foo Fighters did a pretty good cover of Gerry Rafferty's "Baker Street" a few years back.

    Page, Plant, Jones & Bonham Sr. (from the top of his "Stairway") approve this one!

    Brought bittersweet tears to my eyes, particularly due to all the bowler hats worn by the chorus. R.I.P. Big John! At least we still have the rest of them and son, Jason!

    Because classic Heavy Metal never gets old.

    Likewise, their cover of "Die, Die My Darling" saved the song. The original recording is very poor, to say the least. But I don't like it as much as the song I posted.

    EDIT:
    No, not Robert Plant. Just not him. He hates the song. He disliked the reunions because he would have to handle the song every night with Page having a 5 minutes long musical orgasm of a solo. He hates it so much he sent money to a radio that swore not to play the song ever again. Yes, he donated money because they didn't want to play that song. Ironically, the band prefers Kashimir (and the album in which the song was) to the Stairway. But the rest of the guys are fine with the song. Just not Plant.

    ^^^Granted, he doesn't like to perform it or hear it on the airwaves, but did you not watch the clip and see all three of them just about brought to tears as Heart & Jason performed???

    This is very embarrassing to admit and possibly sacrilegious, but I like Fiona Apple's cover of "Across the Universe."

    The Rolling Stones cover of "Love in Vain" is pretty good, as is the Jimi Hendrix cover of "All Along the Watchtower".

    That George Michael cover in the OP is pretty epic! Nothing is more '80s than a blaring sax solo...nothing

    The Dismemberment Plan's cover of Jennifer Paige's 90's bubblegum pop/dance hit "Crush" is brilliant. The Plan deconstructs the poppy, devil-may-care girly anthem, and turns it inside out and into an ironic, heartbreaking dirge.

    Rod Stewart...the King of Covers! From "Handbags and Gladrags" in the late 60's through all of his most recent releases, he has demonstrated great ability to put a fresh spin on just about any music style. My favorite is his remake of Cat Stevens' "The First Cut Is The Deepest".

    For Bond fans, Moby did a pretty cool techno version of the theme...

    Thanks...YouTube'd it and Moby is an awesome 007!

    Slightly related, Trent Reznor did a masterful job covering and adapting Led Zep's "The Immigrant Song" for the soundtrack to "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo", of course starring another Bond actor, Daniel Craig. The energy level is similar to the Bond flicks.
