These are some ones I found by accident while looking for the original on YouTube but fell in absolute LOVE with the cover versions!

WAAH! They're awesome! I like both songs already, but these are just good - if not better, at least in the first case. 

 

Yeah, shut up, I know I'm obsessed with this show, but the metal cover of the already great theme is just AMAZING!! And usually I'm not that into metal, even. 

Also, bonus points because he really looks like he enjoys playing! ^_^ 

Actual song starts 6-7 seconds in. :) 

 (PS: check out his cover of Interstellar theme too. :omg: That one starts right away.)

William Shatner's cover of "Common People" isn't bad at all, he gives it a really angry energy that just grows as it goes along, and the way the music explodes at the end is great. I don't know if it beats the original for me, but I love listening to it from time to time. 

 

 

Johnny Cash's cover of Hurt is a classic now. 

 

I adore Arcade Fire's cover of "The Guns of Brixton", I wish there was some official recording of it. I don't know if taking the "live" aspect of it would kill its energy, though, which is what I love about it. But hell, just do an official live recording. I can completely imagine people going out in the streets and rioting as they sing this. 

 

Ash's (with Chris Martin)  cover of The Buzzcock's "Everybody's Happy Nowadays" is neat:

 

I've also gone crazy over Ramin Djawadi's covers in Westworld, from Radiohead to the Rolling Stones: 

 

This cover of "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" from BioShock: Infinite is pretty cute, a good contrast to the awful world the game takes place in: 

 

In a movie filled with disappointing covers of an amazing album, Elton John steals the show as the Pinball Wizard in Tommy: 

 

And if anyone here is watching "Better Call Saul", I'm sure I'm not the only one who's been listening to this the past week:

Since it's Halloween, posting this awesome cover of "This is Halloween" by Marilyn Manson. This is also one of my fave AMV's

John Barrowman's cover of Demi Lovato's Skyscraper is Way better! (Ignore the typo title and that it's a fanvid, LOL)

I recently found this cover where Sophie Ellis Bextor sings Do you Remember The First Time by Pulp. I was surprised but it’s a great cover.

Original: All the Stars by SZA and Kendrick Lamar

 

Here’s a beautiful rendition by Jorja Smith.

 

And then this is a violin cover of the same song. I just love that most of the song is in high notes.
