    This is simply unbelievable. She completely transformed this Elton John song into something extraordinary.

    "Poor Otis/Dead and Gone" was a really good song writer. Etta James covers his "Security" better than Franklin ever sang anything.

    Now that I think of it, Eurethra Franklin sings 2 great covers: Say a Little Prayer. Very dated but it reminds me of a fun time in my life. And, Chain of Fools.

    Lil' trivia for ya: Janis Joplin's Piece of My Heart was a cover. Guess who sang the original? (There's a big, fat, shrill clue on this post!) Answer below.

    I've never heard a good cover of Born to Be Wild, and I've heard great singers attempt it. I saw Steppenwolf once. In the late '80s. They were fantastic. John Kay sang just like he did in the'60s. And he was surprisingly good-looking, too.

    Bad Rabbits - Sextape (Deftones cover)

    This cover is so good, Deftones actually said they think Bad Rabbits' version is better.

    Chris Cornell did a pretty decent cover of Nothing Compares 2 U. It's on Yootoob.

    Misteralf - Last train to London (ELO). While I wouldn't say it's a great cover I don't mind the video.

    I think David Goffin sang the original electric version. :D
