I'm partial to Take Me To The River by Talking Heads over the Al Green version.
Also, the Lemonheads redo of Mrs. Robinson is a fun remake of the Simon and Garfunkel original.
And I'd throw in the Isley Brothers version of Summer Breeze. It's not necessarily better than the Seals and Croft version but it stands on its own quite nicely.

Ive always stood Arlo Guthrie's version of the Beatles Tune "Ive Just Seen a FAce" as the best version of that song.
Arlo's version of "City of New Orleans" is usually preferred over that of Steve Goodman's. I like them both.
