Mossy Toes Hmm. "Warrior Concerto" by the Glitch Mob springs to mind--it's a cover/remix of some concerto of Vivaldi's, though the name eludes me.

Honestly, I'm fairly partial to Amanda Palmer's covers of Radiohead hits. F'rnstance: "No Surprises"

Melancholy, sedate, wrenching and powerful is Justin Vernon (singer for Bon Iver) covering another favorite and underappreciated artist I very much like, Anas Mitchell, with: "Coming Down"

Quite an interesting wealth of covers comes from the AV Undercover, where the Onion AV Club gets 25 fairly famous bands to cover 25 famous songs per year. Quite a few disappointments in there, but also some glorious covers, like GWAR covering Kansas's: "Carry On My Wayward Son"

Nordicus Fallout Boy has made a excellent version of Michael Jacksons "Beat It"


I actually prefer this to the original

However there is a live cover by Eric Burdon and the New Animals which is fairly amazing. When I find the right version I'll edit this and link it in.

In the meantime here is right arrangement but not as good a performance.

im tempted to go finish mastering this song and upload a video of me playing bass as a "cover song" here with a voice over of me singing it... but eh, too much work and I dont have a good mic for recording, yet.
