This song has been covered numerous times probably because it's a really good song. The person who wrote it was very prolific and a lot of his songs were covered. Here are just a couple of the covers. The Neville Bros one is one that I really like.

Like Pax I'm a huge Leonard Cohen fan. So I'm going to go with these:
Original:
"]YouTube- LEONARD COHEN - Suzanne (Live 1988)

Cover:
"]YouTube- Peter Gabriel Suzanne Leonard Cohen

I think both versions are Haunting for different reasons.

Well JC you beat me to it! I was going to do Suzanne.
So I guess I'll have to do Neil Young's AFTER THE GOLD RUSH.
Both of the covers are really great.

Couldn't find Dylan's original original, but I guess to a lot of folks The Byrds version is the original...
