Lightbulb Songs where the cover is better/or the original is better than the cover

I'll start with a couple where I think the original is best, and you guys can post some where you think the cover is better than the original:

This version (the original) by Ednaswap for me will always be much much better than the Natalie Imbruglia cover. It's a shame the cover was so much more popular because the original is miles better imo.

Natalie's cover https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VV1XWJN3nJo

Ednaswap original https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7ULhmJIi4s

Also The Toyes original makes Sublime's version look like ****e compared to each other

The Byrds cover of Bob Dylan's "Mr. Tambourine Man" springs to mind as an instance where the cover is better.
