Green Day: "My Generation"
- MG needs a young, fresh, energetic, frenetic flavor
Little Village: "Squeeze Box"
- Imagine John Hiatt's vocal and Ry Cooder's solos...
Eric Clapton: "Sunrise" or "Sally Simpson"
- Hard to disassociate EC with "Eyesight To The Blind" but the guitar lines
of these two songs are mind-boggling in their potential
Sting: "Gettin' In Tune"
- I'm not normally a fan of Sting, but his vocal ability is stupendous, and
he has a history of at least two brilliant vocal interpretations of other's
songs ("Come Down In Time" from the Elton John/Bernie Taupin tribute *Two
Rooms*, and his version of "Little Wing")
This is fun...
