    Are there any songs out there where the remake is better than the original? I can only think of one at the moment. All along the watchtower Jimi's version. Are there any more out there?

    I'd say both Alien Ant Farm's and Michael Jackson's Smooth Criminal are awesome in their own right

    Also, I prefer Mark Ronson/Lily Allen's Oh My God to Kaiser Chiefs'

    I rather like Lily Allen's version of The Kooks' Naive and her version of Britney Spears' Womanizer she did on the Radio 1 Live Lounge:

    Also La Roux's Live Lounge cover of White Lies' Farewell to the Fairground is good. I don't think it's better than the original, I think they're just as good but different due to the nature of Elly Jackson's high vocals.

    I remember there being a poll about this one, and I was in the minority, but I prefer Prydz's Brick in the Wall to Floyd's.
