when covers trump the originals

Was talking to Wifey the other day about which cover songs are better than the originals. My two best examples were Van Halen covering the Kinks "You Really Got Me" and the Pixies covering Joy Division's the Jesus and Mary Chain's"Head On".

I don't know how to make the transition in an elegant way, but this "cover" of a Samsung ad makes me want a Galaxy tab like a million times more than the original.
