Which song would you have him and his band cover?


I'd love to hear his take on Lil Jon & The Eastside Boys' "Get Low" or Crowded House's "Don't Dream It's Over".

Closer by Nine Inch Nails.

Great choice, but if I were to pick a NIN song for BW to cover, it'd have to be "Every Day Is Exactly The Same" or "The Great Below".

Yep. I think he could actually make them work quite well.

"Top of the City" by Kate Bush. I always thought it would make a great Beach Boys/Brian Wilson song.

Would have been cool/interesting if the band had done an album of covers (a la Pinups, Diver Down, et al)....oh, wait, I guess they kind of did (sort of) with 15 Big Ones.    Undecided

Great choice! One that came to my mind was Procol Harum's "A Salty Dog"----the UK equivalent of "Surf's Up" in some ways...

The soundtrack of our lives - Everything beautiful must die

For years i wished that he would do a cover of The Modern Folk Quartets - This Could Be The Night. Imagine the happy look on one swedish 18 year old kid when he got that Harry Nilsson tribute as a christmas present. Still loving that cover!

Down in a hole by Alice in Chains. Already have the arrangement in my head. It'd be similar to the 'Desper version' of Til I Die

Great choice! TWIK would be killer with his current voice.

He should have put a Spector-with-gooey-synths version of "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah" on the Disney album!

"Roadrunner" with a spectacular vocal arrangement on the fade on a Modern Lovers tribute. Blondie Chaplin on guitar, Al Jardine on backing vox.

"Workin' in the Coal Mine" with the above trading verses.

"Goin' Down" by Nilsson... Probyn banjo, equally spectacular vocal arrangement.

Captain Beefheart - "Harry Irene" just to hear BW sing "their tuna sandwiches would turn the dark into day."

but if I have to choose one, how about a solo piano demo of "Speeding Motorcycle"

Once In A While the standard as done in the early 1960s by the doo-wop group The Chimes. Gorgeous version with some of the emotional resonance Brian brings to his best music.

I was kinda thinking Endless Nameless would be great, but Gallons is a good one too.  Smiley

But in all seriousness, "Box Of Rain" by the Grateful Dead.
