Here's the take by the Isaignani Illayaraja:
It isn't really a copy in the tradition of Preetam, but is inspired. I find this take vastly better than the original. (I found the link between Illayaraja's version and the original here, years ago).
Recently I started listening to Jazz and stumbled upon another version of My Favorite Things, by John Coltrane:
This version really does full justice to what the original could have been. The melody is ever present throughout the piece either in full or in pieces or just surreptitiously lurking behind the flight's of fancies by the soloists. It's like a tight rope walker doing ever impossible feats but always returning back to the rope. A true musical masterpiece.
