Oh Mercy was a fantastic album.  <<snip>>  Too bad you can't find the originals on youtube.  Shooting star is probably my favorite song from that album.
Link to Oh Mercy full album playlist Lots, all?, Dylan on youtube after he sold his music. And a few cover songs for thread relevancy.

Ariel Pink's Baby is 10x better than Donnie & Joe Emerson's version. Which is also really good.

Thanks, 6 months ago wasn't available when I searched for the Dylan original, just live performances and covers.

Say what? Heard Jimmy Buffet doing this Van Morrison classic on Sirius XM the other day, had never heard it before. Not better than the original, but not bad.

Just found this cover recently, I think it is a very loving tribute to the original, doesn't sound much different.

This one might need an * next to it. The original song is by the band Steelheart. The song was used in the movie "Rock Star" and re-recorded. That's Steelheart's vocalist Milijenko Matijevic (not Mark Wahlberg, he doesn't have those kind of pipes) with the "fake band" Steel Dragon, which consisted of real rockers Zakk Wylde, Jeff Pilson and Jason Bonham. I think I actually prefer the movie version. The vocals are turned up a notch, and Zakk tearing it up on the guitar adds something extra.

Just stumbled onto this. Britney Spears' breakout hit, redone with w/ an indie chill vibe.

Pandora hit me with a nice cover of a classic Journey song. I had another window open, I thought it was Halestorm. It wasn't. Vocals sound pretty similar to Lizzy to me, and they do a lot of covers.
Bonus cover, because I saw Sershen & Zaristkya also did it. At least some of them are Ukrainian, so here's to supporting Ukraine. Sorry, no air keyboards in either of the cover versions.

I can't really put my finger on it, just never been a Springsteen fan. Ever. Cannons has plenty of originals but they do a number of covers as well.
edit--Whoa, young Springsteen is totally giving me Ben Affleck in "Dazed and Confused" vibes; no wonder I don't like him, he's O'Bannion! Cannons kinda has the same formula as Chvrches--2 goofy looking Joe Schmoes and a gorgeous female singer fronting the band

Here's another band in the same vein as Cannons, covering Cyndi Lauper (they cover a Springsteen tune too, but I'm skipping that one).

Okay, I'm getting lazy. This band has a bunch of cover songs. One of them is a mashup of several songs. I'm not gonna track down all the originals.

I think there have been quite a few covers of this song. Here's another. I think that's rotoscoping, haven't seen that done in a while.
