Of course there are the dead obvious greats.

Hendrix covering Dylan's All Along The Watchtower.

Hit me with a great if you like, but I dig obscurity and something that I can't hear on the radio everyday.


I'll throw down with Bang Bang, written by Sonny Bono, sung by Cher, 1966


Covered by the lovely Nancy Sinatra that same year.
Here's her version.

Martin Gore (of Depeche Mode) did a solo album of covers called Counterfeit. All of the tracks are good, but Julee Cruise "In My Other World" and Lennon / Ono "Oh My Love" are brilliant.

Oh, you want obscure? Can you handle obscure?

Actually, these guys impressed Leonard Bernstein so much that

"he invited the group to appear at one of his Young People's Concerts with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, where they performed their signature song "Brandenburg" which was based on the first movement of Bach's Fifth Brandenburg Concerto." (WIKI)


You gotta love these lyrics for "Gravedigger"

One of the wildest I know of is the cover of the Supremes "You Keep Me Hanging On" by Vanilla Fudge. Too bad this old footage is so fuzzy, great snapshot of the times!
