ah shoot, illegal downloads and their incorrect titles - sue them, all of them

that was the first HD song I knew, together with the great song Paranoia - I admit it took me a while to realise that was actually the infamous Flagpole Sitta

Kansas' Carry On Wayward Son could be a worthy of the TLW treatment...

Harmony vocals, savage lead guitar part, twinkly keyboard part, it has all the makings.

Thing is, it's such a long song that you're getting into Freebird territory. But what if a section of it were integrated into another song, ala Cinnamon Girl? And what song could stand up to that sort of integration, both in tone and in key?

Praire Home Companion/Altman press has me yearning to hear "Suicide is Painless"... It's a sad parellel to goings on in Iraq too.

Could TLW make the worlds most hopeless song hopeful?

I heard this the other night for what must have been the thousandth time, but this time it struck me hard, as the hypothetical Long Winters cover to end all hypothetical Long Winters covers:

'Land of Confusion' - Genesis

If they could get some of those killer puppets from the video, that would be even sweeter. But the mere imagining of Mr. Roderick singing 'Well Superman, where are you now?' give-a-me chills. Or maybe my A/C's on too low. Whatever. 'Twould kick much ass regardless.

Picture this:

A Cinnamon/Cinnamon Girl-style medley but instead with Sky is Open and Mister Mister's Broken Wings

If it doesn't happen live, I think this is a good 'mashup' candidate.

I'll get right on that.

America's Sister Golden Hair just came on the iPod...sounds about right for this band.

I'm afraid that "Disturbed" has destroyed pretty much any greatness left in a possible cover of that song. The video is played on MHD, the high definition mtv station constantly. It's one of 8 or so non-country videos that they play. It's not even a decent re-purposing of the song; the guy's voice sounds perilously close to Phil's, and it's the same tempo and everything.

That said, I feel sorta negative now... What about a slow, mournful, acoustic version of Devo's "Girl U Want"?

'NOW!!!' you say? I've waited nearly a year for a response to my post; you can wait at least a few days for my response to your proposal. So there. (teehee)

As for Disturbed...this is the peril of paying zero attention to mass-market 'music', I suppose. But certainly there have been multiple covers of other songs, and even more certainly, the LW version would be better than the Disturbed one. My now-ex-boyfriend digs Disturbed, and despite his protestation that he 'likes other stuff', it is exemplary of his 'taste'. That really should've been more of a warning flag than it was. D'oh.

Now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure I'm not down for another serious relationship. Ever. I don't suppose you're interested in some stringless fooling around, then?

Here's another one: 'Listen to the Band' by The Monkees.

You think it'd be better as a ballad??
I'm still waiting for a band to cover "The Day My Baby Gave Me A Surprise "...

Genesis AND The Monkees???
I'm falling hard...

I'd like TLW or HD to do a cover of The Monkees "For Pete's Sake"...

That would be acceptable; I don't think Girl U Want would work as a full speed straight cover, no.

I don't want to kill a (stringless) romance, but TLW would have to do a really, really great job to do anything to Land of Confusion that could possibly make me like it.

First off, I'd like to see them. Period.

If I did see them, I'd like an non-ironic version of The Jam "When You're Young" which is one of my favourite ever singles and reminds me of being young. As I was young in 1979.
