Beats the original, eh? The original was ROY FUCKING ORBISON and it's arguably his best ever vocal performance alongside In Dreams

Doesn't beat the original, nothing could, but I like this.

 

Blondie do a decent version, too - but like you say, the original is peerless.

Madness covered it but nothing beats the original by Labi Siffre.

 

There are a couple that I didnt know were actually covers when I first heard them. Harry Nilson's version of 'Everybody's talkin (about me)' from Midnight Cowboy,  Amy Winehouse's 'Valerie' which aint the cover of Stevie Winwood's version!

 

Blamange's 'The day before you came,' a cover of Abba's last song.
