For the past few weeks I’ve been happily singing along to Lelah Hathaway’s remake of Sade’s “Cherish the Day.” Although I would have scoffed at anyone ATTEMPTING to touch the classic tune, Lelah handles it effortlessly and somehow makes it her own.

Hearing Lelah’s remake made me think of others I enjoy, sometimes even better than the original.

A few that come to mind are D’angelo’s remake of Smokey Robinson’s Crusin, Method Man and Mary J. Blige’s take on Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s You’re All I Need, Lauryn Hill’s Killing Me Softly remake, and of course Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You.

What’s your favorite remake?
