Brian Ferry Jealous guy/John Lennon - Both great versions
Manfred Man. Blinded by the light/Bruce Springsteen - Worst cover version in the history of cover versions
Joan Jett I love rock n roll/ The arrows - Never heard the original
Nirvana The man who sold the world/David Bowie - Both v Good
The Byrds Tambourine man/Bob Dylan - Very different, but love them both.
