Phantasy Covers

In my head I have an R.E.M. covers album done by current artists. So far I have the following:

  • Adele doing I’ll Take The Rain. I picture her in a ballgown backed by a full orchestra giving it her all.
  • Harry Styles doing Be Mine. I see him doing a version that is kitschy while paying homage to the original resulting on a fantastic new take on the song
  • Taylor Swift - Nightswimming is a logical choice but I’ll go with another piano-driven song: Electrolite.

That’s only three, so we need another 10-15 songs for a complete album :laughing:

The Smithereens - Old Man Kensey
Neil Young - I remember California (purely it sounds like something he wisely decided to bin anyway, so he might as well try putting some life into it)

Adele doing “I’ll Take The Rain” is a brilliant thought, I think.

I can imagine Muse doing a pretty spacey-epic version of “Leave”.
