    You need to be more specific.

    Anything by Johnny Rivers were better than the originals, like Memphis.

    The Beatles Twist & Shout was better than the Isley Brothers.

    Different stokes for different folks. It’s all a matter of taste.

    I stumbled across Chase Holfelder's minor key cover of Cyndi Lauper's Girls Just Want to Have Fun. I find the song takes on a new, haunting quality. As if it's being sung by someone that longs for fun rather than enjoys any.

    I also like the rendition of Simon and Garfunkel's The Sound of Silence done by Disturbed

    Oh, and perhaps most of all, I find both, very different, renditions of Gotta Get a Message to You, (originally a Bee Gees tune,) done by Movy Fruvous to be better than the original. This first one was similar, then the second one took it to an entirely different place.
