    "Till there was you" by the Beatles crushed the original from the play/movie "The Music Man."

    Blinded By The Light by Manfred Mann as opposed to Bruce Springsteen springs to mind.

    The one that came to mind first was Guns N' Roses' version of "Live And Let Die". Much more polished than the Paul McCartney original

    This is the song that was the inspiration for the thread. Donovan's is good, these guys took it to the next level.

    Respectfully disagree.
    Sandy by Springsteen was also better than the Hollies remake.

    That was back when Bruce still had some soul.

    Well it's all quite subjective really.
    What sounds good to me, may not to you, and vica versa.:up:
