I'm a big fan of cover songs, typically if they're done well. I often will hear a song on my iPod and think about how a certain group would do covering it. For example, I love heavy metal, and would like to hear Fear Factory or Behemoth cover "Center of Eternity" by Ozzy Osbourne.

Years ago my friend and I put together a fantasy Paul McCartney tribute album, with various major music industry stars covering lesser-known songs from throughout his career. There's even a chance that one or two will turn up on the real McCartney tribute in the works; I know that Billy Joel has recorded a song for the album, and I know that Paul started doing the song we had picked for Billy, "Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five", in concert recently (he seems to have been adding songs that were done for the tribute album, since his touring band was also on the album). Of course, some of the performers we picked are no longer even possible. We had a full track listing, but I don't have it anymore. But some of the other ones I can remember:

Cage -- Squeeze (this is an unreleased Wings song)
Only Love Remains -- Elton John
Love In Song -- Chuck Berry
Baby's Request -- Harry Connick Jr.
Love Awake -- The Hollies
C Moon -- The Ramones
Wanderlust -- Crosby Stills Nash and Young
Oo You -- Page and Plant
Biker Like An Icon -- Tina Turner
I Wanna Cry -- Eric Clapton
One More Kiss - Willie Nelson
Stranglehold - Pearl Jam
Move Over Busker - Aerosmith
Get Out Of My Way - Travis Tritt
Must Do Something About It - Rod Stewart
The Back Seat Of My Car -- Brian Wilson
No Values -- Paul Westerberg
Suicide -- Tony Bennett (only a brief snippet of this song appears on McCartney)
Sweetest Little Show -- Paul Simon


I find putting together these "tribute albums" fun, but I suppose it would violate the rule against fantasy booking!

After Pearl Jam started playing Fortunate Son during their 2003 tour, I have longed for a track-by-track tribute to Chronicle Vol 1.

I also wish more folk/bluegrass jambands would do rap covers like The Gourds' version of Gin & Juice. Though I have heard a few and they were not pretty. Maybe that magic is too rare.



Lloyd: When I met Mary, I got that old fashioned romantic feeling, where I'd do anything to bone her.
Harry: That's a special feeling.

Ugh. I hate ironic covers. Especially a punk band covering any 80's song.

A few of my friends at work call me Mr. Inertia (because I'm so resistant to change), so I guess I haven't sold out yet.
