XTM And DJ Chucky Presents Annia - Fly On The Wings Of Love

I love this dance reworking of the Olsen Brothers song that won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2000. Peaked at #8 here in 2003!

So was your comeback there. The ones in the OP are pretty awful tbh. I've always loved the following.

Stereophonics-Handbags and Gladrags
The Corrs-Dreams
Natalie Imbruglia-Torn

SuBo's Wild Horses is a guilty pleasure of mine.

No Doubt's It's My Life is another good one that not everyone knows is a cover.

Good shout on The Corrs' Dreams too, I'd second that as a great cover.

I used to love this! One of my favourites from that era music.gif (an era I know quite well bc charity shops seemed to be full of compilations from the late 90s/early 00s)

Johnny Cash - Hurt
Jose Gonzalez - Heartbeats
Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah
Michael Andrews feat. Gary Jules - Mad World

These are all incredible and do what a cover should do in adding a new direction or meaning to a song that wasn't as visible in the original. Far too few these days are as good as these.
