Basically, put up your favorite cover of a music track you like, along with the original, if you care to include it (to be clear, it's optional). The music can be from a game, movie, TV show, or just a song from an artist. I can't say I expect this to get far, but I thought it'd be interesting to see what all kinds of covers exist for various types of music.

My favourite cover is Johnny Cash's cover of "Hurt"

Cover


Original
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

Man I remember I first heard that song in this video. I was so taken back by how well it fit and how depressed the artist sounded that I had to go look up more about it.

This song was originally done by Des'ree, but I love this cover as well.

Not sure if it qualifies, but yeah.

I have no idea who does this version of the song, though I've heard it came from an anime.

It's a male version of "Lonely Tropical Fish." I think this is the original version?:

Picked this cover because it's not often I can hear an orchestral cover I like as much as the original, when the original sounds like it does.
