Cover Song Requests and Thoughts

ianh42ianh42 Posts: 167
Here are my top 10 live cover songs in no particular order, but will say my personal fav has to Love Reign because it's a rarity. Was lucky enough to make it to the Who Tribute at Pauley Pavilion years ago where PJ did it, and it was incredible!

Love Reign
RITFW
Baba
Crazy Mary
I am a Patriot
You've got to hide your love away
Masters of War
Won't back down
Redemption song
Sonic Reducer had to be in here but Walking the Cow deserves honorable mention.

Studio mention for me is Crazy Mary...Ed sounds so fricking incredible on it. Last Kiss would have been in there over a decade ago but that song got way too played out for me I can hardly listen to it now.

What new covers would people like to hear if and when they ever play shows again?  For me it is Thank You by LZ, Beth by Kiss would be so cool and Ed could change it to Jill, and there are so many more options.  I wish they'd do something special by Audioslave/Soundgarden/TOTD to honor the late CC...miss that guy so much.  

Cheers to possible shows in the Fall!!!

    "I'd Love To Change The World," by Ten Years After.

    It's right up their alley, style-wise AND message-wise... probably more appropriate nowadays than ever before.

    I have been saying for years that they should cover this one.  I'd die happy if I ever heard this one from them!!

    One cover that came out of nowhere in 2018 was Missing and was and amazing performance in Seattle. 

    I would love to see a one time only Tragically Hip cover when they are in Ontario again. Anything they think they can pull off is fine by me slow fast does not matter. The crowd would go nuts if this ever happened.

    Ooh yeah, that would be cool.  I'd probably pick I Am the Highway. I feel like Eddie wouldn't even consider it though given his hurt from Chris Cornell's suicide...just too painful!

    If you're going there then it is River of Deceit...no doubt!  I'd enjoy them doing a few of the other band's side projects, but they do Crown of Thorns cover. So that's cool.  I love some of Brad's songs and The Day Brings would be special for so many reasons...that was the song we danced to at our wedding for our first dance.  Maybe one day we'll get Stone and Eddie to do that for us LOL

    Absolutely agree. I’ve always been hoping for this too. Stone on acoustic and Mike ripping that lead. Lyrics seem to be right up Ed’s alley as well. Great song and I think PJ would nail this.

    I'd like to see them cover some side project songs. Always love it when the band has pulled out some of the EV solo stuff, so they should do the same for the other guys. I'd love to hear them play a Mad Season or Brad song.

    That is such a great idea...any chance we can get them to cover Brad's The Day Brings at Ohana fest?!?!  That would be truly epic for so many reasons!  Mad season would be cool too.  The start of summer here has me fired up and ready for Ohana but it's still 3+ months away.  There will undoubtedly be covers, but so curious how they will handle a short set list.  I think they will be capped to play 90 minutes or so, and they'll want to play a bunch of Gigaton IMO.  More covers Sat night in Eddie's set as he always does a bunch of covers solo. I keep hoping he'll have Mike there Sat night to play 2 or 3 songs with him.  I can't see Stone being there Sat., but Mike and Matt might both show up.

    Thoughts anyone? I can probably post daily on here with a new cover song request.  Today's will be the Strokes because they may be the only band I'd spend money on for tickets right now in that I've never seen them and loved their 2020 album.  Would love to hear PJ do Juicebox!

    Does anyone know if they've ever covered an ACDC song? I'd love to see them do For those about to rock or a classic even.

    I’d vote for Act of Love as I feel that has a chance of being played. But my favorite cover of all time by them was when they did Everyday by Buddy Holly back in 2000 when they stopped in Lubbock. Wonderfully done.

    I LOVE Everyday too and listen to this version a lot. Wish they would do it again.
  • ianh42ianh42 Posts: 167
    I will have to check Everyday out @DM282158 and Act of Love is a good call.  I would go with Needle and the Damage Done though. Would welcome Harvest Moon in an encore set.   
    Do you have your own pick @RS65573?

    Probably Rain by the Beatles from 8/20/18 in the Rain.

    Stuck With You by Huey Lewis & The News would be great!

  • ianh42ianh42 Posts: 167
    Growin Up @kotton_crown or Fcuking Up lol.  Huey Lewis would be cool @mvw@RS65573 I always wanted to hear them do something more like Because than Rain by the Beatles, but no doubt that Hide your Love away is Eddie's fav to do solo. I wonder what other Beatles tracks they've covered because I've definitely heard that version of Rain on the bootleg.

    California Dreamin by the Mamas and the Papas. I am sure between Stone, Jeff and Matt, they could do pretty good harmonizing on the backing vocals. 
  • ianh42ianh42 Posts: 167
    ooh @JeBurkhardt I love that idea especially being a so cal native...would be great to see them do that down here.  Makes me think Ventura Highway but hard to imagine them doing any America covers. Not their vibe at all.  Maybe Eddie could pull off a horse with no name in his solo set LOL
