    Default Good songs that have good remakes?

    My friends and I like to make CDs for one another and I was thinking about making a two disc set where the first CD had a bunch of awesome songs on it and the second CD had those awesome song's awesome remakes.
    This is all I have so far:
    1.) Hurt - Nine Inch Nails 1.) Hurt - Johnny Cash
    2.) Where is My Mind - The Pixies 2.) Where is My Mind - M.I.A.
    3.) Time After Time - Cyndi Lauper 3.) Time After Time - Eva Cassidy

    Any ideas? The more divergent the new one is from the original the better.

    Always on My Mind

    Elvis/Willie Nelson/Pet Shop Boys (havn't heard John Wesley Ryles version yet)

    Maybe I didn't treat you
    Quite as good as I should have
    Maybe I didn't love you
    Quite as often as I could have
    Little things I should have said and done
    I just never took the time
    You were always on my mind
    You were always on my mind

    Maybe I didn't hold you
    All those lonely, lonely times
    And I guess I never told you
    I'm so happy that you're mine

    If I made you feel second best
    Girl I'm so sorry I was blind
    You were always on my mind
    You were always on my mind

    Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
    Give me, give me one more chance to keep you satisfied, satisfied

    Little things I should have said and done
    I just never took the time
    You were always on my mind
    You were always on my mind
    You were always on my mind

    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

    I really like both Landslide and Killing Me Softly.


    A lot of these I don't know by name so I will have to download them or find them on Pandora.

    Hallelujah is a great song. I would also recommend the Jeff Buckley version, which I think is the best even though it isn't the original.
