As a twist on Doon's reworked/covers thread, how about one for songs where there's a better known version, but there's also the original, which is better?

As a starter I give you the better known version;


And here's the original;

Walk this Way, guessing most think of Run DMC not Aerosmith (not sure it counts though as Aerosmith were in the Run DMC version)

Not technically a cover since they co-wrote the song and Bruce Hornsby played piano on the original Don Henley recording. Also very difficult to determine the better version, or better known version. I loved the original when it came out but I think I tend to lean towards the Bruce Hornsby version personally. Either way two top versions.
