Another one I forgot about is "So Sad".

George Harrison recorded his version first, but did not release it until after he let Alvin Lee and Mylon Lefevre use it on their album On the Road to Freedom. (on which Harrison actually played guitar).

BTW, if anyone hasn't listened to that album, you're doing yourself a HUGE disservice.

re: Remakes that were better than the original
Someone mentioned Joe Cocker earlier. I always said he was the best artist to cover other folks songs. Paul McCartney once said something about Cocker's cover of With a Little Help From My Friends--he would be forever grateful for his turning his pop song into an R&B classic.

Others from Joe:

She Came In Through the Bathroom Window (Beatles)

You Can Leave Your Hat On (Randy Newman)

Feelin' Alright (Dave Mason/Traffic)

The Letter (Boxtops/Alex Chilton)

I thought mentioning Motley Crue covering the Beatles was bad but this makes me lose faith in humanity

I like Earth, Wind & Fire's cover of "Got to Get You into My Life" better than the Beatles' original.
