Not so much a remake but an original, having been brought up on the Mamas & Papas version I found out they did backing vocals on this version

Sorry fb22.. the title of the thread was Best cover version/remake of a song. not

Worst cover version/remake of a song. which undoubtedly the Marc Almond abomination was.... FACT.

I can't think of a cover I've actually preferred when I liked the original anyway.
Some of the covers by the modern over-produced whiners are dire.
(But that's only my opinion, and I sound like my dad talking about the Stones in the 1960s. :lol: )
I also hate the thing of putting what i think of as classic tracks to adverts.

Placebo's version of Kate Bush's Running up the hill is a good one,
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4KEEXyRL0qE
The Disturbed rendition of the Sound of Silence is probably better than the original,
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=u9Dg-g7t2l4
And while maybe not the greatest I do like this one ,
