^Ah, I figured as much. This song was actually from a really interesting album released a few years ago called No Man's Woman, which features a bunch of Australian male artists covering songs originally perfomed by females. There's some pretty cool stuff on there.. you might like it :ninja:

If it's on Spotify I'll be sure to give it a go. :yes:

Original 8

Cover 9

Dylan x2

Hendrix x3

Hmm, that Spotify looks pretty awesome. Not available in Australia yet though :ninja:

Oh, I didn't know that. Is it going to be?

I hope so.. seems they're trying to expand it. Right now it's only available in Finland, France, Norway, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom.

To us, music is everything. Our dream is to have all the music in the world available instantly to everyone, wherever they are.

But for the time being, we’re not able to launch in every country. We’re really sorry about this, but it takes time to arrange licensing agreements with record labels and local publishing rights societies.

Rest assured we’re doing everything we can to resolve this, and hope to offer Spotify in many more countries as soon as possible.

Beatles: 9.5
As Stormbringer mentioned above, one of the best tracks on 'Sgt. Pepper's'.

Elton John: 7
I strongly dislike Elton John, but it's a difficult song to cover and this is a decent version.

Original x4
Cover x1

On a side note, I'm really kicking myself right now for not nominating this -
