A good cover is an art-form in itself, do you rework it entirely, do a straight-out carbon copy or just tweak it a little? All have their pros and cons, you could drop a hit, a miss, or become a laughingstock. But shitty covers aside, many times the covers have been as good as and in many cases actually better than the original.

Yes, of course; I respect the original and what Elton John has done for music, blah blah blah.

With all due respect, Billy Corgan looks and sings like a sad baby. However, a little-known cover of the song does exist, from a band called Stutterfly.
