9. "Sweet Thing"

Covering Chaka Khan is always a risky propostition; when you're already being compared to her, as Mary was when she debuted in 1992, it's even riskier. But here, Mary's earth-shaking voice more than lives up to the task—so much so that this timeless song has become associated with her almost as much as it is with Chaka.
