There is a fantastic cover of Abba's SOS by Portishead drifting around the internet at the moment. It keeps getting deleted but if you Google it you may still find it. Apparently it's used in a film called High Rise. Try this: SOS

And one that is not known almost at all:

 

Monumentum "Fade to Gray" (Origin.: Visage)

 

Monumentum are (or were I am not sure whether they are still active) an Avant Garde/Gothic/Doom metal band from Italy. They were basic an one man (Mamarella) band with session musicians. The vocals of the cover are performed by the front lady of Ataraxia (who were a bit more famous amongst the metal circles)

Love Portishead, thanks for that. I am waiting to see that movie also.

Another interesting aspect of song covers, is artists who cover themselves :

 

The Kinks, "I am not like everybody else" . First version was a B-side released on 1966

 

The Kinks, "I am not like everybody else" . reworked on 1996 (30 years later). Far , far superior. Yes it is the version playing at a great scene from Sopranos with the late Gandolfini
