QotD: Better than the original?

What is your favorite cover song?
Question submitted by Ray.

Too many to name, really, so I'll just fill in the blanks as they occur to me.

Chaka Khan's cover of Prince's "I Feel for You"
Bilal's cover of Radiohead's "High and Dry"
Anything Luther Vandross tackled except Lionel Richie and Diana Ross' "Endless Love" and Heatwave's "Always and Forever"
Gary Jules' cover of Tears for Fears' "Mad World"
Mark Eitzel's cover of Dusty Springfield's "No Easy Way Down"

    Ha! I remember trying to find an outfit like the one she wore in the video for a dance in High schoo. I was such a tragic teenager.
