Not sure if these have been mentioned yet. I favor both to the originals.

How do you make a song substantially heavier?
 
Slow it down. By half. It is unbelievably hard to keep the meter at this tempo...

I just don't find Lou Reed a good singer.

Although George certainly had chops, I believe this was what he was trying to achieve:

Wow, I'm interested that someone prefers Nico's These Days to Jackson Browns! I was listening to them the other day and thought it was totally the other way around and assumed most would agree. I just think her register doesn't suit it and the arrangement isn't as nice as his. Very interesting...

I heard Nico's version years before Browne's so I'm certainly more familiar with it but apart from that I find Browne's version rather middle of the road.

Rush is probably my favorite musical group and "La Villa Strangiato" from their Hemispheres album is one of the songs that made me want to play music in the first place. Greg Howe does a cool version with shred guitars that I enjoy quite a bit:

This is one of those cases where I never liked the original song. This is an excellent cover, its so mellow and hes a damn good singer.
