Greatest song cover of all time?

You didn't know that was a cover? God do I feel old.

For me, there is no better or more iconic cover than this, which is a hugely popular song few people know as a cover - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FOUqQt3Kg0

More recently, I like this, ragged, live cover version much more than the original (mainly because I like many Smiths songs but hate Morrissey with a white-hot passion) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtmS2ePSSdU

[edit] I'm a huge Radio Head fan, and that was horrid. Thanks for tainting my image of Radio Head. :)

What a fresh and original idea for a thread.
LOL

For me, I'm not a big Sinead O'Connor fan, but seriously:

I think the best song cover of all time is "Learn to Use the F*ckin Search Tool" by NS1 which I'm covering in this post.
