Maybe not slays, but, IMO, a cool take on the song. I prefer cover over the original just for the raw guitar riffs. Some great one's mentioned in this thread. Especially Cash's take on Hurt.

Wow! I bet it was quite the sonic experience to have been at that Beck show. Props to the conductor fir keeping them together. Wonder if Beck did the arrangement.

Apparently it took Beck 2 1/2 months to get all the arrangements ready. Beck's dad did the actual conducting...

and here:http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/ ... s-20130206
And a technical video here:https://vimeo.com/62838587

wish the 360 degree footage was still online... here's hoping it resurfaces again one day.
