Good Covers of Pop Songs

sometimes you have to hear someone else sing a song to realize it is pretty good. While there are ironic or snotty cover songs out there (see Ben Gibbard's Complicated), here are some great covers of pop songs by respected artists:

travis does Britney



ted Leo does Kelly



Clem Snide does Christina (my personal fave)- move past the talking at the beginning (to about 1:44)



What are some of your faves?

This cover of Outkast's "Hey Ya" is pretty good. Never heard of the cover artist prior to this.

I like anything Ben Hibbard does.
