What covers of a song are better than the original?

Maybe not considered a true cover, but I've always loved Jeff Beck's jazzy instrumental cover of The Beatles' "She A Woman."

The first thing that I though of when hearing the first few seconds was Peter Frampton doing "Show Me the Way" with his Talk Box.

That was an excellent cover by Beck.

I don't know if it's a better cover... it is my favorite Jimi Hendrix song... I use ThirdStone as a user name in several places. :)

Stevie's version was pretty great tho!

I've always found it interesting that the one you hear first becomes the original in the mind. Even if it was remade years later.

Not better but different.

The original

The cover

I strongly disagree that Whitney's version is "way better".

That would be like saying one version of "All around the watchtower" was way better then the other.

Dylan can’t sing so yeah Jimis version is much better.
