    Here are 2 examples of a well known song where I prefer another version than the original.
    I'm On Fire; Carmen Gomes from the ''Thousand Shades of Blue'' album,
    This overwhelmingly well recorded album starts of with a mesmerizing version of the Springsteen classic, I really like the singers low key interpretation of the song, puts the lyrics into perspective.

    The you tube version is not exactly the same as the download, download sounds better and the drum groove is a bit different, smoother, but it still gives a good impression.

    Yes, the Carmen Gomes album is pure ear candy.
    How about Earth Wind and Fire ''Got to Get You into my Life''

    I'm a huge Pearl Jam fan - but am convinced that Seether has a better version of their classic "Immortality"
    Pearl Jam original

    Seether's cover
    (the Seether album is "One Cold Night" - it's brilliant!

    Nine inch Nails Hurt

    Johnny Cash's Cover

    Johnny Cash also did a great cover of Personal Jesus which I can't list because the original by Depeche Mode was pretty damn great

    Manfred Man's "Blinded By The Light" destroys Springteen's version IMHO.

    The Gary Jules version makes Tears For Fears original seem like a bad demo tape.
