From "Game of Thrones", this has been covered by several other artists, but Jackie Evancho completely made it her own, and this version was formally released as a single by SONY Masterworks.

From her PBS special "Awakening - In concert" DVD (not shown in the broadcast). Jackie accompanies herself on piano for the first part. Now a part of her "Awakening" concert tour.

There are several good covers, but this one is the best - RecklessGreed
Haunting and powerful, this is a completely different take on this song than Simon and Garfunkel. This doesn't seem like the kind of song Disturbed would take on, but they truly nailed it.
