Added DiffLines:

* "Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen has had several covers that all have different tones. Cohen's version is dispassionate. John Cale's version is sincere. Jeff Buckley's version is sexy. Guy Garvey's version is more regal. And so on and so forth.
** Of course, since the original version of the song has ''80'' verses, it's fairly easy to pick and choose tone - though most covers follow John Cale's example.

* "Witchcraft": Stevie Vallance has a cover that changes around the lyrics so it seems to be about an actual witch.

* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1gxkRve4Q0 Down By The River]]" by Music/NeilYoung is creepy enough. It's a murder ballad, possibly inspired by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7C3r9PnoNTw Banks of the Ohio]], combining Neil's mournful voice with occasional frenetic blasts of guitar jamming, over minimal background and an implacable walking bass line. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0a_NQoXvE-w Indigo Girls' version]] is fairly straightforward aside from the [[HoYay Les Yay]], but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9E5V7edC2rI Mc_Kendree Spring's version]] sounds more like ''Johnny'' Rivers, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOxbGEXM89g Low and Dirty Three's version]] sounds as if it were recorded ''in'' the river, and Empty Mansions' version sounds like it's coming from the afterlife...
