“Fascination Street” by The Cure
I have already suggested this song…but it was awhile ago

Or you could just keep playing your own songs
Social Distortion is a great idea! or how bout something from the pixies like wave of mutilation or gigantic
Maggie May!!!!!!!!!! oh ya! please please pleeeeeeeeeeeease cover this one! k
Either Lou Reed – Vicious or Tom Petty – Free fallin’ but the pixies comment made me think of an airborne version of where is my mind!?

Saw someone suggested The Boxer which would be really cool too.

anything by Andrew W.K.
Just wanted to say that I LOVED that you added I’m On Fire to your playlist during the DC show last night.

I’d love to hear you do “Love Cats” by the Cure . Just saw you guys last night @ The Opera House in Toronto. Beyond Awesome!

favorite lyric: consumed with what’s to transpire
Sex on Fire by Kings of Leon
the Kinks ‘don’t forget to dance’ I’d love to here Mikel’s voice on this.
I’d like to vote for Social Distortion, too. I think “Ball and Chain” would be a great one to cover. Also, “Love Vigilantes” by New Order would be awesome as well.
What’s so funny about peace, love and understanding by Elvis Costello?
Drug buddy by the Lemonheads. I can already hear it in my head.
“Just Like Heaven” by the Cure. (By the way, exceptional show at Summerfest last night!)
I loved the crystal ballroom concert and from the war songs you did i got the idea that it would sound really awesome if you guys and girl did “funny the way it is” by Dave Matthews band. it would be the awesomest thing ever but there is no keys or violin in it so it would sound even better if you improvised…………
How about “Darklands” by The Jesus and Mary Chain?
why don’t you do “Better Man” by Pearl Jam?
How about something by The Velvet Underground? I’m Waiting for The Man, or What Goes On …
or how about The Zombies, She’s Not There
These would really be cool.

I really love when you cover classic, timeless songs like Johnny Cash or Springsteen. One song that has always given me goose bumps is
Bridge Over Troubled Water – Simon & Garfunkel.
Michael Penn- No Myth, just because I could see you rocking that cover!
Cover anything by The Gaslight Anthem or ‘Drive Somewhere’ by the Vulgar Boatmen. Thanks!
one cover request: “Prssure Drop”- Maytals or Class version…Thx
Absolutely fantastic cover of Bruce. Have you ever considered covering Pulp… Maybe Disco 2000 or Common People?
Great show in nyc last night…great version of this song too!, What about doing either dead flowers or live with me by the stones!!!
