With the risk of sounding like a Mark Ronson obsessee, I present Valerie.
Original by The Zutons; cover by Mark Ronson ft. Amy Winehouse.
They're both very variant in musical style and are therefore original in their own way. I don't think either version is better than the other.

This is School Days; the original by the legendary Chuck Berry, and the cover by AC/DC. It's no secret that Acca Dacca are hugely influenced by Chuck Berry. I have to say, growing up being hugely influenced by AC/DC, I prefer their version to Chuck's, and while Chuck remains unavoidably brilliant, I also think that Bon Scott is one of the best, if not the best, frontman that ever lived. Both are extremely similar in style - long live rock and roll
I remember coming home from school everyday and listening to T.N.T which featured their cover of School Days.

Frankly, the remake doesn't come close to the original ...

No worries. A fresh start is always good.
As long as people are posting music, it's all good.
