REM Cover

Post by mary » Thu May 02, 2013 1:12 pm

Hi Frank, I was wondering if you ever thought about covering Man On the Moon? I think it would suit your style so well. I'm imagining an acoustic beginning and then 'punking' up the chorus?

i have often thought about Frank covering REM - But not that song .... was thinking something older would work well.

Agree, however with the way his music is evolving I thought this would suit the new format.

Bit of a cliche R.E.M. song, but now that you mention it, that could be quite interesting to hear. (Sometimes the obvious choice isn't a bad thing, after all)

I'd love to hear Frank cover a Warren Zevon song.... possibly Reconsider Me. He'd probably have a lot of fun with Werewolves of London or Excitable Boy, too.

since this is kinda turning a "songs that frank should cover" thread...

not sure how third eye blind is perceived in the UK and the rest of the world, but in the US they often get miscategorized as a 90's "one hit wonder" type of band, but they actually write some pretty awesome songs.

the song "motorcycle drive by" would sound awesome if frank covered it,and it has awesome lyrics.
