What is your favorite V/U, Lou Reed cover song?

I really love this version of Candy Says by former Come singer/guitarist Thalia Zedek, complete with some viola work Cale would have been proud of.

And this gives me goosebumps, Siouxie Sioux and Bernard Butler performing Caroline Says at a Derek Jarman benefit concert in 1993. I love how she sings this, it's a wonderful mix of beauty and edginess.

Aside for Bowie, I loathe all of them. Whatever Lou Reed was, he was certainly the Lou Reediest Lou Reed he could me. How much more Lou Reed? None more Lou Reed. To quote Tom Petty (about another legendary icon) "Generally speaking when you try to cover the Beatles, you end up sounding like an asshole"
