I know they would never do this, but I love Paul Simon's 'You Can Call me Al'

"If you'll be my bodyguard
I can be your long lost pal
I can call you EDDIE
And Eddie when you call me
You can call me Al
Call me Al"

    These are all terrible suggestions!! :evil: :mrgreen: As I read "London Calling" I immediately thought of the Know Your Rights cover...that sucked! Am I the only one who thinks that?

    My choices for songs that should actually work

    The Beatles - Mother Natures Son (Thinking of the White Album - Everybodys got Something to Hide Except Me And My Monkey would be incredibly fun,too - maybe a one-shot performance like they did with Whip It)

    CCR - Born on the Bayou
    The Byrds - 5th Dimension
    The Doors - Tell all the People
    REM - The Flowers of Guatemala
    Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Deanna
    Bonnie Prince Billy - Just To See My Holly Home

    But I have to say, that for the most part the rather obscure covers work the best! Who would have though that they actually sound good covering Timeless Melody? THATS a cover that should reappear on setlists! Baba is delicious, too! So sad I haven't seen it in concerts yet.

    Tops: Baba, Timeless Melody, The Real Me, Leaving Here (!), So you want to be A RnR Star, Crazy Mary
    Downs: Know Your Rights, Fortunate Son, All Along the Watchtower (!)

    Hm? Fortunate Son and AATW are all over the place, but not in a good way. They usually play them too sloppy compared to the tight originals. At least Know Your Rights sounds right, but I don't like the song very much. Instead you should quote my TOPS! The Real Me for instance is brilliant!
