Gender-bending Song Covers

I need examples of gender-specific songs covered by singers of the opposite gender. For instance, Jack White's cover of Dolly Parton's "Jolene".

The lyrics must not be changed. If the original female singer was waxing lyrical about her man, so too must the male cover singer, and vice versa.
