Artistes who do cover versions have the advantage of hearing the original, and can work on this to make an improved arrangement. Often it doesn't work out like that and covers don't match up. Which cover versions do you people think are better than the originals?
To kick off, I offer these three:-

"Unchain My Heart" by Joe Cocker (orig. Ray Charles)
"Rockin' All Over The World" by Status Quo (orig. John Fogerty)
"Need Your Love So Bad" by Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac (orig. Little Willie John)

I give an honourable mention to the Beatles, whose versions of "Long Tall Sally" and "Slow Down" came close.
Any offers?
