Reel Big Fish - Take One Me = best cover ever

And I'd like to add a song which is the worst cover in the world. Avril Lavigne singing System of a Down's Chop Suey. It's an incredibly painful experience.

Well the original is quite a painful experience if you're not a fan of SOAD, luckily I am...

That's definately one of the best cover's ever!

Also:

Jeff Buckley/Rufus Wainright - 'Hallelujah'. Just beautiful!
'Respect' by Aretha Franklin has to be up there too.
'Rocket Man' by Kate Bush.
'Wonderwall' by Ryan Adams.

i'd like to add on the "hurt" cover of jhonny cash. it's astoundingly sad.
another hearbreaking version is sonic youth doing carpenters in "rock star" (don't you remember you told me you loved me baby?)
it sends chills up your spine.
another really good cover is Cat power's "wild is the wind".

"Frozen" by Madonna -- just kidding!

Most of the times, the original is the best, but there are quite a few times that I find the cover better (Herb Alpert's versions of "This Guy's in Love With You", "Taste of Honey" and "Last Tango in Paris" come to mind, as well as "Please Mr. Postman" by The Carpenters).

Sinead O'Connor singing Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 U".

Not sure if this is strictly speaking a cover because although Prince wrote it I'm not sure if he released it before or after she did. Prince's version with Rosie Gaines is also excellent.
