Original songs and the best cover versions

Quite simple really, you probably all have some favourite music from your past which others have then recorded as a cover version. Some covers have become more 'famous' and that is the main driver of this thread. I'll kick it off with Handbags and Gladrags. Originally recorded by Chris Farlow and then covered by Rod Stewart and then the Stereophonics. My favourite is the Stereophonics which I think is the best version of the lot. So what's yours?
