Covers that were better than the original

As the result of a sidebar conversation, I figgered this would be a nice topic. @hungryjoe is currently winning with Johnny Cash’s rendition of Hurt, which I should have called early on.

Oh, shit, we can’t skip Tears for Fears’ Mad World, best known as the melodramatic tune from Donnie Darko:

Anyone that says Gollum is fired. Do not search for that.

TNMP should fall on a sword. If need, I can loan one.
