Heard Nilsson's 'Without You' today and thought of this thread. I do like the original too, which I hadn't actually heard until last year, but I think in general this version is more well known now. And it is really, really good.

My personal favourite is probably 'Hallelujah' by Jeff Buckley. Already mentioned by a few here and rightly so. So much atmosphere and emotion in that recording.

Also a mention to FB himself for 'Some Things (I Can't Get Used To)'. I hadn't heard the original until lately but Franky B and the C's really do it justice. Whether it's actually better... I don't know. Tough one. Definitely one of my favourite covers though.
