covers you'd like to see

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

Tina Turner's Private Dancer wouldn't be a bad choice either.

I wouldn't mind them rocking out a Shonen Knife track.
Green Tea, Ramen Rock or even Capybara would be good fun
Cheers.

They have talent to trash other's songs, so vocal range is not a limit there, imo.

Would love another Ramones cover, I know they did I Wanna Be Sedated early last decade, before?

Maybe Suzie is a Headbanger.

I think I suggested Safety Dance by Men Without Hats last time, still going with that.

A Furs cover is long overdue, Into You Like A Train would fit the bill :)

Children Of The Grave - the drumming will allow the Dok to run amok and there is a twiddly guitar bit at the end to keep the hair metallers amused too.

I've always thought that Robyn's "Dancing On My Own" would be perfect.

La Roux: In for the kill

I doubt Eldritch could do all the “awoooh� hooting and honking like she can, but I’d be interested to hear his howling in its place.

It’s a cracking tune. Proper groovy. I’d be interested in hearing a version without the 8bit computer game chip tune instrumentation.

Barracuda, by Heart. Appropriate subject matter and power chord riffage. And I could totally imagine Von mumbling through it in his baritone, with Ben on backing high notes.

The Hawaii-5-0 theme as one of the instrumental/ciggy break set fillers. Mind you, Gary's or Catalyst's shirt collection would have added extra theatre to such an event.

How about Never Met a Girl Like You Before by Edwyn Collins. Within Eldo's vocal range, good beat, cracking guitars for the boys, has an obvious girl in the title and the lyrics are suitably ironic.

Just heard it on the radio as well, sounded great to me :D

If we're choosing based on vocal range, then...
