Roll Over Beethoven
Til There Was You

Many more.
Don't want to start world war 4 or 5 or whatever, but I much prefer the originals of all of these except for 'Til There Was You' and 'Chains', I especially prefer the vocals from the Isley Brothers. I do think the Beatles really nail 'Mr. Postman', but I'm not sure it's an improvement over the original.
