Layla-Eric Clapton...well, not really a remake per se, since he sang/played the original with Deric amd Dominos

Another vote for Hurt-the Man in Black
Southern Cross-Jimmie Buffett
Sail on Sailor-Jimmie Buffett

Great list so far.
Here are some off the top of my head that I like, in order from kick your azz to melt your soul.

1.
Metalllica- Mercyful Fate. It is made up of the abbreviated versions of five Mercyful Fate songs: Satan's Fall, Curse of the Pharaoh's, Corpse Without Soul, Into the Coven, and Evil.
The original song is found on Garage Inc., the Metallica-made cover album from 1998.

2.
Creedence Clearwater Revival- I Put a Spell On You.

3.
Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Audioslave. My favorite vocalist) - Ave Maria
I get chills just after the 4 minute mark.

Off the top of my head, I can't think of a song CCR covered that I don't like better than the original.

Mind you, the oldest kid in either is 16-17yo. And the girl singing is only 11!
