“Georgia On My Mind” - Ray Charles

I honestly cannot believe no one has seconded this. Or even mentioned Ray Charles!  

Apart from Ray (my favorite vocalist of the rock era), here are some others...

”Mr. Pitiful” - Otis Redding

”Can’t Turn You Loose” - Otis Redding 

“Twist and Shout” - John Lennon 

“I Am The Walrus” - John Lennon

”Kozmic Blues” - Janis Joplin

”Get it While You Can” - Janis Joplin

”To Love Somebody” - Janis Joplin 

“Me and Bobby McGee” - Janis Joplin 

“The Letter” (live) - Joe Cocker

”Sweet Thing” - Van Morrison 

“(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher” - Jackie Wilson

Blue (album as one cohesive work) - Joni Mitchell

”White Rabbit” - Grace Slick

”Today” - Marty Balin with Grace Slick

”Levon” - Elton John

This list is not exhaustive, even of some of the artists mentioned. Just a few thoughts. 

Levon, undoubtedly. Probably my favorite Elton song.
