Sublime even did a cover to this song. My drum corps played it as their ballad last year it was epic.

I'm a fan of Harry Nilsson and had never heard the Dylan cover.

Tonight I watched Austin City Limits and they had The Civil Wars performing
and they really killed it Live. They did a great cover of Billy Jean.

No covers, but also on ACL was The Punch Brothers. They're a Bluegrass band
who essentially extend the boundaries of the genre and they really cook.
Impressed enough to just order 2 CDs from Amazon.

I really liked all the acoustic guitar covers sung in Portuguese
of David Bowie (Space Oddity) songs in the Bill Murray movie
The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou.
