What re-recording or variation of a classic song do you believe beats the original?

Did a lot of comparisons tonight, and I have to say I feel the variation of “Why Don’t You Do Right” sung by Amy Irving in Who Framed Roger Rabbit holds far more impact than the original recordings done by Peggy Lee, or even many artists after.

What redo/variation of a classic still holds you speechless?

      Another cover that I think Cash did better was Hurt (original by nine inch nails in the 90s). Completely reinterprets the song.

      I also enjoyed Disturbed's covers of Sound of Silence and Land Of Confusion far more than the originals (by Simon & Garfunkel and Genesis, respectively)

      I bring them all up in conjunction with your lizt because they keep with the theme of totally changing an otherwise average song and adding an entirely new layer to it.

        Hell, "cover" is underselling it a little, as even the original artists they listed are just the ones with the oldest known recording, we don't know quite how far back it goes. Folk and blues standards can be so interesting with their histories. Copying the "Origin" section of the wikipedia article:

        Like many classic folk ballads, "The House of the Rising Sun" is of uncertain authorship. Musicologists say that it is based on the tradition of broadside ballads, and thematically it has some resemblance to the 16th-century ballad The Unfortunate Rake. According to Alan Lomax, "Rising Sun" was used as the name of a bawdy house in two traditional English songs, and it was also a name for English pubs. He further suggested that the melody might be related to a 17th-century folk song, "Lord Barnard and Little Musgrave", also known as "Matty Groves", but a survey by Bertrand Bronson showed no clear relationship between the two songs. Lomax proposed that the location of the house was then relocated from England to New Orleans by white southern performers. However, Vance Randolph proposed an alternative French origin, the "rising sun" referring to the decorative use of the sunburst insignia dating to the time of Louis XIV, which was brought to North America by French immigrants.

        "House of Rising Sun" was said to have been known by miners in 1905. The oldest published version of the lyrics is that printed by Robert Winslow Gordon in 1925, in a column "Old Songs That Men Have Sung" in Adventure magazine.

        The oldest known recording of the song, under the title "Rising Sun Blues", is by Appalachian artists Clarence "Tom" Ashley and Gwen Foster, who recorded it 6 Sept 1933 on the Vocalion label (02576). Ashley said he had learned it from his grandfather, Enoch Ashley. Roy Acuff, an "early-day friend and apprentice" of Ashley's, learned it from him and recorded it as "Rising Sun" on November 3, 1938. Several older blues recordings of songs with similar titles are unrelated, for example, "Rising Sun Blues" by Ivy Smith (1927) and "The Risin' Sun" by Texas Alexander (1928).

        The song was among those collected by folklorist Alan Lomax, who, along with his father, was a curator of the Archive of American Folk Song for the Library of Congress. On an expedition with his wife to eastern Kentucky, Lomax set up his recording equipment in Middlesboro, Kentucky, in the house of the singer and activist Tilman Cadle. In 1937, he recorded a performance by Georgia Turner, the 16-year-old daughter of a local miner. He called it The Rising Sun Blues. Lomax later recorded a different version sung by Bert Martin and a third sung by Daw Henson, both eastern Kentucky singers. In his 1941 songbook Our Singing Country, Lomax credits the lyrics to Turner, with reference to Martin's version.

        For a few versions of the song by notable artists predating the version by The Animals:

        Leadbelly, another version with Leadbelly on guitar

        Woody Guthrie

        Bob Dylan

        The Prince version of Nothing Compares 2 U that was released last year actually predates the version by The Family, but it wasn't released at the time as it was more of a demo for the Family project. The Family version is still largely a Prince track, as he is playing all instruments (uncredited) save for the saxophone (Eric Leeds) and the string orchestration (Clare Fisher), with St Paul Peterson and Susannah Melvoin on vocals.

        My favourite version of the song is the one included on Prince's 1993 Hits collection, which has a live recording of the song from 1992, with Prince backed by the NPG and Rosie Gaines sharing vocals.

            I would definitely say that Fischer was one of Prince's most important collaborators.

            Fun fact, which you may already know: despite Fischer doing arrangements for Prince for almost three decades, the two never met. Prince was extremely happy with Fischer's first arrangements for him (which actually were for the Family project - I think the tracks High Fashion and Desire) and apparently got a bit superstitious, thinking that it might ruin their working relationship if they ever met. He even avoided Fischer at industry events that both attended.

            As for The Hits compilation, it was a wonderful release back in the day as it came with extensive liner notes (by Alan Leeds), a CD of hard-to-get B-sides, as well as four preciously unreleased tracks: Nothing Compares 2 U, Pink Cashmere, Pope and Peach. And they were all different and all oh so brilliant. Happy days.

                Outside of the Prince empire, Alan has notably also worked with James Brown (which is actually why Prince hired him), Maxwell, D'Angelo, Raphael Saadiq and others. Something of an industry legend, that man.

          Sorry to dump such a lot but it's a pet project of mine and I've made a habit of saving astounding covers as I find them over the years. There's only 2 criteria:

          1. It has to be significantly different from the original
          2. I have to enjoy the cover itself whatever the reason.

          but a soft third might be to avoid the more common ones that often come up - I guess Money and I Will Survive don't really fit but I think most of the rest do.

    "Black Sheep of the Family": Quatermass / Rainbow

    It's not a classic, but Iron Savior's cover of Underneath the Radar got me into Underworld (original version). I like them both but Iron Savior's has an amazing energy to it.

    Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" is far superior to Robert Hazard's original.

    Rasputin - Turisas by Boney M I can't listen to the original anymore, feels like half the song is missing and the vocals have less energy to them.
