I know what you mean, but I don't think the unique individuality of the original overshadows the merits of the cover. That said, judged against the thread criteria, it may be a fail.

Here's another example. The same boys performing a much covered song, yet in this they bring a very different vibe to the party. I especially like the motion of the sprinkled percussion groove treatment.

Of course, Lukather's just the right guy to have on your team for a number like this :) Again, the bass guitar work is inspirational IMO.
