In rock, Bryan Ferry's cover of Bawb's A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall is a good one.
For sure, that version of My Favourite Things song is WAY better. I even have it as one of my favorites.

I have to agree with you on the Brian Ferry version of that Bawb song. I was surprised to see how many artists have covered it from Leon Russell to Jason Mraz and Edie Brickell.
