Cover songs and remixes?

There are many songs that have been covered more than once or have been remixed. I think the biggest shock I found was a woman singing a cover of the song "Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zeppelin. I couldn't believe my ears. I thought the song was done an injustice. At the same time I can sometimes feel blown away by a cover version of someone else's song. Such as Jimi Hendrix doing Bob Dylan's All Along the Watchtower. But remixes I can never seem to get into. What is one song you wish that someone didn'd do a cover of? Is there a song you think that someone else could sing better than the original?

Eric Clapton. His songs are just so cool, so evergreen so nice to hear and I would never get bored ever. Like for instance 'Change the World' should not be done a cover version. I don't know if there are already. Another one; Red Hot Chili Peppers. Under the Bridge had a cover version by a girl band or some sort. Not that bad sounding, but I still prefer the original one..

When there is a dearth of novelty, you have to copy the original. This is an age of remix. Every singer is unique, ther can't be comparison.

A song that I thought a group could sing better.... "Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen, as covered by the Guitar Buddies (Kurt Nilsen, Alejandro Fuentes, Esper Lund, and Askil Holm) A song that I think was HORRIBLE as a cover is "Life in a Northern Town" originally performed by The Dream Academy, as performed by Sugarland with Dream Academy's former leader singer. It was just horrible to hear.
