    My first pass top-of-mind:

    Let it Be-The Beatles
    God Bless the Child-Billie Holliday
    Exit Song (for a film)-Radiohead
    Rhapsody in Blue-Gershwin
    Bridge Over Troubled Water-Simon & Garfunkel

    Alan and ZoeGirl:
    My son and husband LOVE "Hurt" by Johnny Cash and they played it several times this past holiday so it's very fresh in my mind. It's a little depressing to me, but it is a beautiful song

    Don't nobody take this the wrong way, but I am always surprised when conservatives like good music.

    Check out a few of the others I mentioned, in his later years Johnny Cash had the unique ability to take someone else's song and interpret it in such a way that the original was forgotten. I once heard someone say when Johnny covered your song, it was no longer yours.

    I will check out some of the others, Hurt is definitely his song. If you watch the video as well you totally forget someone else performed it first.

    I know not everyone would appreciate this one but Disturbed covering Sounds of Silence is amazing. This guy can sing, he worked with a vocal coach just to do this song.

    Kinda cool that someone picked one of the same songs as I did!

    One of the things I love about the internet is the ability to find interesting stuff. One of my favorite things are the a capella remixes of some of my favorite songs. Doing that plus putting up links to some of my favorite songs ever.

    Ok, it's 10:47, an hour past my normal bedtime. SO is probably wondering why I'm sitting in the den with my headphones on and not sound asleep in bed. As much as I don't want to I should put off thinking more about this thread until tomorrow. Thank you thank you thank you to flowers for posting this. I will be listening to everything that everyone has posted and undoubtedly posting more of my personal faves over the next day or two.
