I’ve been thinking about songs that would make good cover tunes. Let’s face it, no one really expected The English Beat to cover Tears of a Clown by Smokey Robinson, but it works.
However, I’ve come up with a twist – the artists have to trade songs. So here are a few suggestions:
Van Morrison covers Thorn in My Pride by The Black Crowes. The Black Crowes cover Cleaning Windows by Van Morrison
Mindi Abair covers Righteous by Eric Johnson. He covers Come As You Are by her
Train performs Not Even The Trees from Hootie & The Blowfish’s debut. Hootie covers Calling All Angels
Bryan Adams takes a crack at Daylight Fading from Counting Crows. They turn around and cover She’s Only Happy When She’s Dancing
Whitesnake does Jealous Lover; Rainbow does Fool For Your Loving. Roger Glover gets totally confused.
Sheryl Crow sings Keep the Faith by Bon Jovi. He belts out If It Makes You Happy.
There’s plenty of fun to be had by all here…
What are some ‘cover trades’ you’d like to see?
