Bloc Party did a great cover of Nelly Furtado's "Say It Right" for the Radio1 live lounge a number of weeks back. But then Bloc Party make anything sound great.

Clearly Kele Okereke is a genius and musical God.

There are a few.....

'Blinded By The Light' written and performed by Bruce Springsteen but Manfred Mann's version is much better.
I'll try and find video links latter (no access at work)

Sixpence None The Richer's cover of The La's "There She Goes" was pretty good.

And The Killer's cover of Dire Straits' "Romeo & Juliet" was also quite good.

Which to me is a bit ironic since the song is rumored to be about heroin (Nobody has ever been able to get a straight answer from any member of The La's), and Six Pence None The Richer was a Christian pop band.

Why am I not surprised by your choices?

Dean Martin "Gentle On My Mind" (This song won Glen Campbell a Grammy in 1968 for Best Country & Western Solo Vocal Performance, Male. The same song also won Best Folk Performance Grammy that same year for John Hartford, who wrote the song). Dino's version was released in November of 1968


Frank Sinatra with Antonio Carlos Jobim "Girl From Ipanema"


Sid Vicious (Sometimes credited to the Sex Pistols as it was part of their film "The Great Rock 'n Roll Swindle") "My Way"

Although I can see the heroin thing..."pulsing through my vein"

I disagree.
Some examples of covers that are superior to the original artist's recordings:

Marvin Gaye's "Heard It Through The Grapevine", originally recorded by Gladys Knight and the Pips.

Linda Ronstadt's "Blue Bayou", originally recorded by Roy Orbison.

Gary Puckett and the Union Gap's "Woman, Woman", originally recorded by Johnny Farnham.

The Doors' "Gloria (G-L-O-R-I-A)", originally recorded by The Shadows Of Night.

Ike & Tina Turner's "Proud Mary", originally recorded by Creedence Clearwater Revival.


Honorable mention to artists who have released their own distinctive version of other people's songs:

Johnny Cash's "Hurt", originally recorded by Nine Inch Nails.

Vanilla Fudge's "You Keep Me Hangin' On", originally recorded by The Supremes.

Blue Swede's "Hooked On A Feeling", originally recorded by B. J. Thomas.

Also an excellent cover - brought her own style to it without killing the meaning of the song:
