One of my favorites so far, and I've heard maybe 10% of them, is Sharon Van Etten and Shearwater covering "Stop Dragging My Heart Around".

They don't stray from the original very far stylistically, but the vocals are awesome.

Can we expand this thread to other groups?

This is my favorite version.



Also, this girl's voice is amazing. She's probably my favorite singer from the Postmodern Jukebox series.

Yo La Tengo’s mostly-covers album Stuff Like That There comes out next month, and it includes the band’s takes on songs from Hank Williams, the Lovin’ Spoonful, and, um, Yo La Tengo. (We posted their revamped version of their own song “Deeper Into Movies.”) But the song from the album that we were most excited to hear was the Yo La Tengo version of the Cure’s iconic 1992 hit “Friday I’m In Love.”

Another year of Undercover has come to a close, and with that means it’s time to open the polls and let you all vote for your favorite of this season. Here’s how voting will work: Because we know how painful it will be to choose just one favorite, you’ll pick three. Your top choice will get three points, your second choice two points, and your third choice one point. If you vote more than once, all of your votes will be thrown out, so choose carefully. There are 30 episodes to choose from. Voting will end Wednesday, December 2. The winner will be announced the following day and will receive nothing but bragging rights.

I like this one:

Cover Me posts news articles and features all week, focusing on cover songs, tribute albums, and the like. Features include:
The site has been featured on RollingStone.com, SPIN.com, Pitchfork, and more.

Lots more covers since July:
http://www.avclub.com/features/av-undercover/



I like this - The Minneapolis sound was known for taking the horns out of the rock/funk songs, and replacing it with a fat synth sound. Here, Har Mar puts the horns back, which I always thought some Big Bands should try doing.
