Prince - Purple Rain

Interesting that the song was written by his back-up singers

Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress - The Hollies

Creedence Clearwater Revival - I Put A Spell On You

The Beatles - Don't Let Me Down Rooftop concert, the only one I could trace (Seems most of the videos of their rooftop concert have been removed. There used to be quite a few, albeit of poor quality)

The iconic version of

Hallelujah

by Jeff Buckley
On 2 April 2014, it was announced that Buckley's version of the song will be inducted into the Library of Congress's National Recording Registry
Interesting song as Leonard Cohen has written more than 80 verses
[John not JJ]Cale had watched Cohen perform the song and asked Cohen to send him the lyrics. Cohen then faxed Cale 15 pages of lyrics. Cale claims that he "went through and just picked out the cheeky verses."

Cale's version forms the basis of most subsequent performances, including Cohen's performances during his 2008–09 world tour.
Jeff Buckley, inspired by Cale's earlier cover, recorded one of the most acclaimed versions of "Hallelujah" for his only complete album, Grace, in 1994. It was posthumously released as a single in 2007, ten years after Buckley's death.

When he was almost one year old, Healey lost his sight to retinoblastoma, a rare cancer of the eyes. His eyes had to be surgically removed, and he was given ocular prostheses
On January 11, 2007, Healey underwent surgery to remove metastatic tissue from both lungs. In the previous 18 months, he had two sarcomas removed from his legs. On March 2, 2008, Healey died of sarcoma in his home town of Toronto at the age of 41
