Top 10 Songs I would love to Cover – Part 2
This is a continuation of songs I would love to cover if I did a cover album. Which may happen.
If nothing else, I’ve been adding a few of them in to my acoustic shows. If you haven’t read Part 1, I’ve posted a version of the original song and tried to find the original video.
These are in no particular order.
It’s Not Love: Dokken http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2sxyBMHtMM
Riffs that rock. I like the dynamics in the way the verses are quiet and the choruses just blast. It’s a fun song to sing that matches my range perfectly.
Rest in Pieces: Saliva http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMi9FoNZZtM
I don’t know. Maybe the ethereal qualities and the way it builds to the end. I just love this song. Interesting that Nikki Sixx from Motley Crue wrote it.
Seether: Rise Above This http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qP6JDLQF23g
I love the way this song just builds and builds to the chorus. The lyrics are really inspiring to me.
Don’t Leave Me Lonely: Bryan Adams (interesting how this was written by the late Eric Carr, Kiss’s drummer) I couldn’t find a video.
I love the attitude of this song, and the melody.
So did you really believe there wouldn’t be at least one Kiss song in there? I couldn’t decide on just one song so I chose 4. And no, you probably haven’t heard any of these if you’re not a Kiss fan.
Tears are Falling http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEwnfhuPJGs%20%20(I actually did a demo of this many years ago; there may be a copy floating around) you need to see the drum kit in this video! HUGE.
A Million to One http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qBO0WyB-ZQ%20%20
Magic Touch (I am adding this to my set cause I love it so much) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7w9PMGTQm1U this is a great performance by Paul Stanley.
The strong guitar intros, the driving urgency of all of these songs…the passionate delivery of a magnificent melody. The attitude of the songs…that’s why I can’t decide.
All of these songs have big range so I could show off a little too.
There you have it. This was a really fun exercise for me, and I hope it exposed you to some songs you may not have heard and videos you haven’t seen.
