I want to know about different versions of the song "Wild Horses"?
O.K. there is of course the Rolling Stones and now I have heard one by the Sundays, are there others someone could tell me about?

NoMoreHeadTrip has a really good answer but I can add one more to that list:
Rickie Lee Jones (of "Chuck E.'s in Love" fame) has also covered the tune.
