Ah yes, the rules are the thing – erm…
A new challenge appears every Tuesday Morning or evening – or not.
No song may be chosen twice unless it is.
This week’s challenge is to choose a song that you would like to be recorded by somebody else.
For example it was once suggested in the letters page of the NME that The Smiths’ “Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me” would be the perfect vehicle for Shirley Bassey in her “I Who Have Nothing” mode.
Elvis Costello always hoped that Frank Sinatra would record “Almost Blue” but no joy there. Chet Baker recorded a lovely version of course.
So anyway, what other cover versions do you think should have happened but didn’t?
Who saw an open goal staring them in the face and said “Oh look, a squirrel?”
Clearly you’ll have to post another version of the same song unless you have mystical powers of which I know nothing.
Now, use your imagination and post songs you love that could have been even better.
Mitch can nominate himself but only if he then goes on to actually record the song.
(memo to self – never agree to do this again)
