How 'bout the White Stripes version of Jolene? I think it was originally a Dolly Parton gig...

Okay, here's a few more...

 

The The's (aka Matt Johnson) version of I saw the light (Hank Williams)

 

The Clash's version of Police and Thieves (Junior Murvin and Lee Scratch Perry I think.)

 

Cat Power's (aka Chan Marshall) version of Sea of Love (not sure who wrote that one originally.)

 

Luna's version of Bonnie and Clyde (Serge Gainsbourge)

 

And to top it off (drumroll)... Seattle's own, the Picketts' twangy version of Baba O'Rieley (The Who)

who did "Blinded by the Light" first? I like Manfred Mann's version better...

 

MM wrote it and performed it first, but it was The Boss who made it what it is.

 

But I might be a little biased being's how I'm a Bossy

Willie Nelson and (I can't think of his name) remake of "Poncho and Lefty." Originally by some country singer from Texas. Also the remake of Dire Straights "Romeo and Juliet" by the Indigo Girls.
