    Seems I've neglected to post this before. Mrsdegraded says, "you have so many bloody headphones, listen to that through them!". Ok...

    On that note, I'll take this opportunity to go slightly off-topic just to post this crazy good mashup because I think it never got the popularity it deserved:


    But yeah, on-topic and seriously: the best covers are the ones where another artist takes the song and completely adapts it to their own style, and makes it something new that's enjoyable on its own. Tori Amos' "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was a great example up-thread. Another classic would be:


    And since some have posted purely instrumental covers, this comes to mind (and yes, it's an adaptation - Ramin Djawadi never composed that whole long intro sequence before the part we all know, this is all Mark Fowler extending the melody on his own):

    A song, where I thought the music was great - I hated the studio-ing (what the studio does to compress and contort music). So I started looking for alternative covers:

    Not really feeling the brass instruments for this one, but her voice is perfect for Tool covers.
