    lol I don't think I've ever heard the original, but I've been told it's nothing to compare this to.

    ^^ You should have posted them both. Who says you can't have more than one favorite?

    I like Johnny's version better. It gives me goosebumps every time.

    Most epic indeed!

    Let's see. Does Sinead's version of "Nothing Compares 2 U" count?

    Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" is the rare mega-hit ballad that is absolutely that good.

    Pretty much every cover Ted Leo does is pretty awesome.

    The Bangles' version of "Hazy Shade of Winter" is the definitive one, IMHO.

    The Beatles' "Twist and Shout" is an obvious one.

    The late Isaac Hayes' version of "By the Time I Get to Phoenix" is 18 minutes of awesome.

    The Pretenders (a great band) covered The Kinks (a ludicrously great band) on "Stop Your Sobbing."

    The Pet Shop Boys did the definitive "Always on My Mind."

    CCR's "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" may be two or three minutes too long, but it's spooky and beautiful.

    The Clash's "I Fought the Law" is one of their three or four best songs, thus it's one of the greatest songs ever recorded.

    The Byrds' covers of Dylan's "Mr. Tambourine Man" and "My Back Pages" are superior to the originals.

    Morrissey's covers of "My Insatiable One" by Suede and "That's Entertainment" by The Jam are both stellar.

    Faith No More did a pretty sweet cover of Sabbath's "War Pigs."

    I am sure I am missing more.
    Who wants to try a bottle of merc's "Extroversion Olive Oil?"
