For you, what is the best cover version of a favourite album or track that you've heard or watched?

Recently, for me, it's...

Dark Side of the Moon (originally by Pink Floyd), performed by Dream Theater.

Awaken (originally by Yes), performed by Todmobile.

All Along the Watchtower by Jimi Hendrix Experience.
I still listen to Bob's original which I love but Jimi's version is something else.

My favourite cover of 'Stairway to Heaven' is the latter re-mix version by Far Corporation via Tidal.

"With a Little Help From My Friends" - Joe Cocker (after the Beatles).

Actually this is so far away from the original banal tripe that I'm not sure it counts as a cover version.

Any of the tracks from David Bowie's Pin Ups,

Agree with the Jimi Hendrix version of All along the Watchtower, it's probably the definitive version now.
