Subject: What songs would you cover? (Revisited)

I'd cover Garbage music, which I frequently do in kareoke bars, anyway.

I also would cover a lot of the torch-singer type stuff, as my voice is somewhat low.

"Let My Mother Live" Ozzy Osbourne
"Madame De La Luna" Marc Almond
"A Lover Spurned" Marc Almond
"Death's Diary" Marc Almond
"I'd Rather Set Myself On Fire" Annabouboula
"I Love The Night" Blue Oyster Cult
"Nosferatu" Blue Oyster Cult
"In Dulce Decorum" The Damned
"Ouija Board, Ouija Board" Morrisey
"Blasphemous Rumors" Depeche Mode
"Beat On The Brat" the Ramones
"Tragic Hero" Funker Vogt
"Oops" Tweet
"You Can't Kill Me" Lene Lovich
"No Woman, No Cry" Bob Marley
"All Souls Night" Loreena McKennitt

This is all just off the top of my head, and assuming I've hired a singer that can sing better than I can.

And yes, I know the musical style is going all over the place here.  That's why the singer needs to be better than me.  *I* could certainly never do these songs justice.

I would still remake those I listed before "4/11". But here are some I can remember:
"You Are So Beautiful"-Joe Cocker (which I did before, terribly)
"On Broadway"-Drifters (with more of a jazzy beat)
"Dreamweaver"-Gary Wright
"Dream On"=Aerosmith
"Junk Food Junkie"-Larry Groce
"I Can't Explain"-The Who (Because, if I'm not mistaken, no American acts have covered it)
I would also put lyrics in "Frankenstein" by the Edgar Winter Group)
