Though this one isn't funny, it is remarkable.  Sara Bareilles covering Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.  Not a totally different style, but such a good take on the song.

Very nice.

I think "unplugged" or "less-produced" still hit the general idea - like these two versions of "Here Comes the Flood":

The original Gabriel version:

The Fripp version:

They're similar styles, the melody is totally in tact (even the same singer), but one's bones are so bleached they're almost different songs . . .

just Gabriel:

The just Gabriel version is the one that catches my ear.  Generally the more stripped down a song is, the better I like it.  Except for Bruce Springsteen.  I like his full E Street Band better than his solo stuff.

One of my favorite covers in the past 10 years was Willie Nelson's cover of Coldplay's "The Scientist".  Completely unexpected, and in his wiggly voice; sublime.  I heard it first time on a TV commercial for Chipotle restaurants of all places.  I'm no fan of Willie's, but there was something about the choice of that song coupled with the 'farm to table' cartoon that accompanied it in the Chipotle commercial that really grabbed my attention.  I'm not ashamed to admit that the first time I saw it I might have gotten a little bit choked up.  In fact, in thinking about it and taking a listen just now, I think I'm going to attempt a cover of that cover.  There's some really nice pedal steel in that version that I won't be able to cover exactly.

An artist whose pop tunes seem to continually get covered by all different manner of styles is Cyndi Lauper.

It's great - "Farm - Eat - Repeat" translated to music/animation!

Indeed - I love Miles Davis' cover of "Time After Time" . . .
