sorry, I didn't realize the thread asked for "as good as" the original.

Then this:

tribute:
YouTube - Bryan Ferry - Jealous Guy (1981 Stereo) Music Video


original:
YouTube - John Lennon - Jealous Guy

Wow, JL already made the list. When I read the thread title, I immediately thought of the Screaming Trees version of Lennon's Working Class Hero

The version of "Life Is A Highway" that Rascal Flatts did was, I think, better than Matthew Sweet's.
