Writer's Block: Cover me

Which songs have been covered better by artists who didn't originally sing them?

Right off the top of my head, "Red Rubber Ball", written by Simon and Woodley, but never sung by Simon and Garfunkel until it had become a smash hit as covered by The Cyrkle.

There's a recording of Simon & Garfunkel doing the song live in 1967 which is better than the version that was a hit.

Yes! And I have it. Not sure if it's better, only because I'm so used to hearing the Cyrkle version, but it's very well done.
