Nobody seems to have mentioned Common People by Shatner which sets the standard against which other covers are judged.

Agree with you on that.

Sunday morning coming down tops it though for me.The Willie Nelson version is excellent and his album Willie Nelson sings Kristofferson is a 10/10.

Another to try is Me and Bobby McGee when sung by Janis Joplin.
