Day 26. Your favourite cover version

This is tough for me because I usually don't know a cover song from a hole in the ground. I just don't know enough songs to know when one was written by someone else. But! It just so happens this topic came up a couple weeks ago in my family, when I discovered a song I really liked by the Doors was a cover. I always assumed it was their song until I heard someone else singing it on the classic arts channel, and my sister said, well, duh, that's Kurt Weill's Alabama Song! So, now I know at least one cover song, and I really love the Doors version of it.
