Best Cover Songs

I must say, I am not a fan musical covers nowadays, but this was a KICKASS performance. Even the remaining members of Zeppelin seemed to enjoy it.
One of the BEST rock vocals of ALL TIME! A young Paul McCartney sings the "nearly impossible' on "Long Tall Sally"! - frank
Beautiful and reverent version! Elton told Lennon "IF my version of Lucy goes to Number 1 you have to get up on stage with me to perform it with me". Lennon agreed... The track reached Number 1 and Lennon took the stage at Madison Square Garden with Elton! Lennon was SO nervous that he became "sick" before taking the stage! - frank
Check this track out... Amazingly playful melody penned by Paul! Released after the BBC banned Paul's "Give Ireland Back To The Irish" (due to political reference) AND "Hi Hi Hi" (due to drug and sexual references)... Paul told reporters "let em TRY to ban this one". It's a beautiful track AND a GREAT BIG "F You" by Paul to the up-tight BBC! - frank
I have absolutely no idea how this song can so far down on a list of best covers. I am really, completely baffled by this.
Funked up as ONLY Stevie CAN! - frank
Any metalhead would choose this when they've lostened to it! It is heavier and have some really good vocals and background sounds with a choir and various! This should AT LEAST be at top 10!
Unless an songwriter purposely writes for another artist then surely the writer's own rendering has to be the best?
