John Lennon- "Instant Karma"

Those of you who saw Elevation on SNL where Bono sang the snippet know what I mean.

I would love to see U2 live doing a pairing of U2's "One" with Metalica's "One"

Actually... Never Tear Us Apart by INXS would be cool... Bono has sung snippets of this tune a few times live...

In general I'm not big on U2 doing covers - don't get me wrong, they're not BAD, but U2 isn't the greatest cover band in the world - that's why they started writing their own stuff in the first place :P

That said, I'd love to hear U2 do "See No Evil" by Television and "Pale Blue Eyes" by The Velvet Underground honestly, if they did one of those live... I would be in rapture...

Or they could do something completely random and off-the-wall like a Tool song Bono singing Prison Sex, that'd be...erm...different. Honestly though, I think U2 could do a nice cover of...damnit what's it called...the song right after Lateralus on Lateralus. The one that's like "watch the weather change..." It's a pretty little song with an Edge-y guitar part, kinda Eastern sounding. Man, I need to get out my Tool CDs...but I've been listening to nothing but U2 as of late

It would be pretty cool to hear a U2 cover of some of the more recent semi-U2ish bands... Interpol, The Killers, or Coldplay... but it's always a little odd when bands that have been around for awhile do a cover of some random new song. I dunno. U2 could easily do Moses by Coldplay, the song is already so U2-y that I think it was written for them to do

Can you imagine Bono going to town on "Hey Jude"?

I don't think U2 should cover anyone who has been in the industry for less time than themselves. And so far, I don't think they have.

They've covered Radiohead, Ryan Adams and Coldplay. Although Ryan Adams has had his foot in the door for quite a while.

Not exactly. Coldplay and Radiohead were snippets, and Ryan Adams was with the Corrs (although at Bono's suggestion).

I think this is more full versions.

I'm against the idea of them doing "In My Life," though, because of the sheer number of other artists who have done it.

Johnny Cash
Ozzy Osbourne (on upcoming box set)
Sean Connery!

I'd like to see U2 do a cover of an early Radiohead tune, something Radiohed will never play again: "Everyone Can Play Guitar"

Also, "Never Tear us Apart" would be great. And "Under the Bridge" could be a good snippet for "Bad" or "Running to Stand Still"

How about "Dizzy" by Tommy Roe? Maybe a snippet during "Vertgo" live.

I meant in the studio. I'm all for doing whatever works live. Radiohead and Coldplay are worthy of giving nods to (IMO), but I'm pretty sure that they have only covered their heroes in the Studio.

Jesus Christ - Arlo Guthrie
Dancing Barefoot - Patti Smith
Everlasting Love
Unchained Melody - Righteous Brothers
Night and Day - Cole Porter (Frank Sinatra)
Satellite Of Love - Lou Reed
Paint It Black - Rolling Stones
Fortunate Son - Creedence Clearwater Revival
Pop Muzik - M (Originally debuted in 1979)
Happiness Is A Warm Gun - The Beatles
Don't Take Your Guns To Town - Johnny Cash
Neon Lights - Kraftwerk

And Bono has done a number of solo shots at his Crooner heroes. Leonard Cohen, Sinatra, Jimmy Rodgers, Marvin Gaye

I know I'm missing some...

Maybe U2 should cover something from David Bowie. But which song would suit Bono's strengths?

Everybody else covers "Heroes"...

But I'd say "Golden Years"
