Songs You Would Cover
« on: August 29, 2007, 07:45:09 PM »

Let's say you're a rockstar--or not, it doesn't matter.

What songs do you think you could make a killer cover of?  I'll go first, bitches.


-Garbage Man--Hole

-Mother/Father--Swans

-Milk--Garbage



More to be added, later.

I've covered a lot of Nick Cave and Tom Waits over the years. A lot. It's all a bit cliché.

I have covered Walking In The Sand, by the Shangi-Las

Maybe I Know, by Lesley Gore

Everytime by Britney Spears

Numerous songs by the Rohan Theatre Band

I've translated and covered a few Kaizers Orchestra songs.

Some Brel, too.

The list goes on.

Not all of these covers were good.

I would cover pretty much every Beatles song. And anything on Neutral Milk Hotel's "In The Aeroplane Over The Sea".

Also, Music Box by Regina Spektor and Thank God I'm Pretty by Emilie Autumn. I'll post more later.

Anything by Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers. Particularly all the cutesy songs about Massachusetts.

I already know that I do a kick ass cover of "Sedated" by the Ramones. I've tortured people at karaoke a few times with it. Er, well...the second time at a different bar wasn't actually torture, I guess. I had people tell me that I did great and ask me to do more songs. It was an unusual experience for me.

I assembled this team for purposes of a League of Extraordinary Gentlemen thing, but in reading this thread it occurs to me they're all highly bangable. Yeah, even Spider Jerusalem.
