Simple question, really: what songs would you like to see covered and who by?

I was listening to Aloe Blacc's 'I Need a Dollar' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iR6oYX1D-0w) for about the seventh time today (it's seriously gone and earwormed its way into my brain!) and it struck me that this'd be a perfect song for Adele. The main hook requires quite a distinctive set of pipes, and it's a relatively soulful number that could use a bit of interpretation in order to fulfil its best qualities. She might even be able to rejig the ending a bit, as that's the one area where the original falls flat in.

What 'bout everyone else?*

Hm, I'd love to hear a Dire Straits cover of "Blue Sky" by the Allman Brothers Band. Mark Knopfler has always been one of my favorite guitarists and I just know that he would do justice to the epic guitar solo that makes up the bulk of the song. Plus, Mark occasionally utilizes licks and riffs that have a southern feel to them so I think his style of playing would fit perfectly into a song written by, in my opinion, one of the greatest southern rock bands of all time.

Enter Shikari covering Yellow Submarine, my life would be complete.

Scar Symmetry covering The Seeker by The Who. That just sounds like it would be funny, yet good at the same time.

@CatDog, I know what you mean about that song. When the album was first released that was the one song that I just couldn't stop listening to. And I know it isn't a cover, but I have a song that samples that song as the chorus and its pretty good. Its called Rasta Monsta (feat. Aloe Blacc) by Marky. (If you search HypeM.com you should find a free download...legal of course :) )

Personally I would love to hear a cover of Adele's new song "Don't You Remember" but I don't know who would be able to give it the justice it deserves. :/
