Covers

If Bono told you : "I want to sing a song for you...", what song would you choose and why?

Personally, i'd love to hear him singing "Wicked games" and "Real Wild Child" because i think that last song suits him perfectly well!

"I Need You Tonight" by INXS. That one line always gets me: "There's something about you girl, that makes me sweat"... LOL!

Okay, seriously...hmm...I'm not sure...maybe "Wild Horses" by The Rolling Stones.

"Landslide" by Fleetwood Mac. An odd, acoustic choice, I know, but I think it would be really beautiful with just Bono singing and Edge on the guitar. Just a thought...

"I buy socks."

"The babes, the feast, and the toga conspire to give Adam the bearing of a Caesar (one of the late, inbred, lunatic Caesars, perhaps, but a Caesar nonetheless.)"
-Bill Flanagan, at an after-concert soiree with the band and Co.

"He's not great at the old driving."
-Larry, on Bono

Hmmm...

Just because Jess brought it up with my story, "the Best is Yet to Come," by good ol' Blue Eyes Sinatra...

Journey's "Faithfully."
And another Sinatra fav of mine, "Fly Me to the Moon."
The Eagles, "Desperado."

------------------
"From an artist's point of view, failure is where you get your best material." -Bono

"Sunrises are God's hit singles. Do the big number first and then just get on with the rest of the show." -Bono.

I love "Need You Tonight"! That song just oozes sexuality- I'd love to hear Bono sing it. I think I'd swoon!

Hmmmmm....BonoCovers.

First, the Springsteen ones.

1. Sandy (cause he teased us with only part of it when he induced Bruce and I STILL haven't seen it and dammit it I MUST I MUST hear it somehow )

2. I'm on Fire...just...because...is it hot in here?

3. Thunder Road...Bruce at his best, covered by Bono. Sounds good to me.

Some Van Morrison seems like a good, if obvious, choice too. Bet he'd sing a great Moondance.

For the record, my Offical Rock and Roll Fantasy is to hear Bruce and Bono sing a medly of Desire and (I'll be really impressed if you Pleab girls know this one)She's the One. They're both to that Bo Diddley beat and it would sound amazing. It would send me to the moon...

Hmmm
I'd like Bono to make a song up all for me, which goes something like this...
"hey Bluey
I want to tell you truely
I will do your essay
or your laundry
or your dishes
if you want me to..."
Okay it DOESN'T rhyme but I am THIS far from my 19th nervous breakdown and THAT would make me happy!
Nah nah...
I'd like him to dress up as macphisto and sing Dancing Queen to me over and over while doing my laundry, dishes, and essay..sigh. Oh and he could wash my car too...LOL What a great mental image, Macphisto washing my car...LOL.
A girl can dream...right?
