Interviewers/HR people: what's the best cover letter you've ever read, the one that made you want to hire that person on the spot?

I have a job, I want a better job. I feel like there's only so many things you can really do to a resume, at a certain point your education/work history is what it is. So maybe the way to stand out is to have an awesome cover letter that makes the reader think you are the coolest, hardworkingest, most interested, most teachable, most pliable bootlicker in this massive stack of application packets.
What's the best route to getting away from "resume in narrative prose" to "we absolutely have to call this guy in and see if he's as awesome as he sounds in this letter"?
