"Be My Baby" by the Ronettes - an absolute classic, if you aren't charmed by it at least a little, you have no heart

"Don't Worry Baby" by the Beach Boys - takes the sound of "Be My Baby" and pays a perfect homage to it

Ronnie Spector covering "Don't Worry Baby" - good idea on paper, whoever did the arrangement sucked it dry of everything catchy about the original two songs, it comes from a flat mirror universe where pop music is bad actually


(Brian Wilson also covered "Be My Baby" and manages to make it sound not much like the Ronettes or the Beach Boys; these 4 songs need to be on one of those political compass memes, I swear.)

@erinbee Be My Baby has been covered to death and back. I love Brian Wilson's turn at it, but see also the covers by Ivy, the Dollyrots and Yo La Tengo.
