James Leroy Wilson writes:

I will again cast a vote for Stevie Wonder doing the Beatles' We Can Work It Out, which I think I mentioned in a comment to a previous post.

The Carpenters butchered a lot of songs, but I fondly recall their version of Masquerade (George Benson?). I haven't heard it in decades, however.

Nilsson has the definitive version of Badfinger's "Without You."

This is obscure, but Greenwich Village blues and folk legend Dave van Ronk has a great live version of Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now," playing it with a gravity appropriate to the lyrics of the song. After hearing it, Judy Collins's version sounds like a bubblegum pop tune.
