    Best cover of the oft-covered "Suspicious Minds"?
    Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter take first prize, but if you're feeling 80s New Wave, Fine Young Cannibals do a rockin' version.

    One of the things I love about iTunes is being able to look for covers of some of the great songs. Sometimes you stumble on some great stuff, like Annie Lennox's version of Whiter Shade of Pale.

    GREAT thread idea.

    Off the top of my head, on my ipod...

    I have all three watchtowers (one of two DMB songs I have -- the other also a cover of Long Black veil, which I also have Cash and Willie Nelson doing).

    Redemption Song (Marley, Cash and Joe Strummer) -- In fact, I've got all the Cash covers, including a badass version of He Stopped Loving Her Today.

    All the Pearl Jam covers of the Who, as well as Eddie standing in for Jim Morrison at the Doors RRHOF induction ceremony.

    Just about all the incestous outlaw country covers, including the immortal Kristofferson song with the chorus that goes:

    If we ever get to heaven boys, it ain't because we ain't done nothing wrong/

    Now we're in this gig together boys, so lets settle down and steal each others songs.

    But my all time favorite and most obscure -- live version of Pearl Jam doing Springsteen's One Step Up.

    All that Pearl Jam stuff sounds awesome.

    I have to say this next part quietly, or Fenian will kick my ever-loving ass:

    I have 12-13 versions of them doing Baba O'Riley, and they own that fucking song. Just own it.

    Done even better by Kermit The Frog.

    Also, White Stripes did a mean version of Dolly's 'Jolene'.

    One of the most interesting instances of this was "How Do I Live" in 1997.

    Lee Ann Rimes recorded it for the movie "Con Air" ... but the producers chose Trisha Yearwood's version instead ... but Rimes' version set a record for the most weeks spent on the Billboard Top 100.

    I got a feelin' inside, but, can't explain.

    I probably have five versions of Sunday Morning Coming Down.

    Kristofferson, Cash, Nelson, Haggard and Waylon.

    I got about a dozen, too. Other than the original intro to the song, which I love, I prefer the PJ version.

    And the recent cover of Love Reign O'er Me, which is on the soundtrack for the new Adam Sandler/Don Cheadle film, is very, very good.
