Hilarious. What are you going to request next? A Million Dead song as a joke?

Would have been a lot funnier if youd requested a million dead song there.

I think he could do a smashing version Salisbury Hill by Peter Gabriel, or perhaps Sledgehanger.
Also Patience by Take That.
A bit random, but I think he would improve these songs.
He's recently done my favourite, Julie by the Levellers.

Second Best - Pedro The Lion
or any Pedro The Lion song

and... perhaps something by Bon Iver/Justin Vernon? don't know Frank's view on them/him but I think something like Skinny Love could fit pretty well

I think Frank could do a good rendition of Dylan's 'Boots of Spanish Leather'. It ties in well with Frank's lyrical themes, particularly songs like 'Sea Legs' and 'Wanderlust'.

Eve Of Destruction - Barry McGuire, I love the song and I think Frank's voice would really suit it
