Default Re: Most Unique Cover Songs

Finnish power metal band Sonata Arctica covering Bette Midler's "Wind Beneath My Wings" comes to mind:

Original, for those unfamiliar with it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hDURv...eature=related

Sonata Arctica have a lot of killer cover songs in general, always adding their own twist and flavour to them. How about Metallica's "Fade To Black":

...or The Scorpions' "Still Loving You":

...or Iron Maiden's "Die With Your Boots On":

...or Helloween's "I Want Out" (probably their most faithful cover):
