Which Beatles cover should U2 do next? @ 10:26 pm

eye_shah:

Apologies if we've already had a discussion on this in the previous entries. The other day, when we were discussing our fave Bono song, someone mentioned how perfect the Beatles' "Oh darling" would be if covered by Bono. Over the years, U2 have performed Beatles covers such as Helter Skelter and also recently released Lennon's 'Instant Karma' in the 'Save Darfur' album.

So my question to you is: which Beatles song(s) do you most want U2 to cover?

Heh. The first thing that popped into my head was "I Am the Walrus" which then made me wonder how badly Bono could eff up the lyrics.

Come Together, most definitely.

But I also would love an "Oh! Darling" cover. Bono's voice would suit it well.

None. I wish U2 would stop covering/snippeting the Beatles. I like variety.

either "Come Together" or "Yesterday" would be exquisite.

Bonos voice would be spectacular with Oh Darlin! I can even hear it now!

For some reason, I'd love to hear "Strawberry Fields Forever" by the boys. They haven't done that one, have they? I'd love to hear Edge's guitar on something like "I Feel Fine" or even "Day Tripper. I also agree w/"Oh Darling" and "Across the Universe". If they'd done something like Instant Karma in the '80s, I would have at least wanted to hear Bono's voice on "Mother"; it's such a powerful song, but I don't know if his voice could take it now. Still, he'd wipe the floor with Christina Aguilera (IMO).

What are all their known Beatles covers (including live performances)? I know they've done "Rain", "Help!", "Helter Skelter", "Happiness is a Warm Gun", and snippeted "Norwegian Wood", plus John's "Instant Karma" (duh) and "Happy X-Mas (War is Over)" (did they do "Give Peace a Chance" ever?), but that's just all I remember off the top of my head and I don't remember these things too well. A list or something would be very appreciated.

Whew, that's waaay too long. Oopsies.

As for live performances, on the last tour in Cleveland alone (dec 10 2005) I know they snippeted Happy Christmas, She Loves You, and Help, and they played Norwegian Wood (even though u2tours.com lists it like it was just a snippet tacked on the end of a song, it wasn't) and Instant Karma, so I'm sure it's a rather huge list.

Oo "Oh Darlin!" would be amazing. I also agree with "Across the Universe." Hmm, I'd love to hear "Girl" (Bono would nail the breathing from that song *sigh*). I can't really think of any more songs, there's wayyyy to many to think about.

Across the universe! (I know there's a charity kinda thing where Bono sings the first 2 lines, but the rest of the song is horribly sung)

'Oh Darling' would be fab in Bono's voice. Also 'Why don't we do it on the road?'
Come Together.
While my guitar gently weeps. An electro version with the Edge breaking into a funky solo of a weeping guitar...

Oh, Darlin! for sure. I was singing that today, and I could just picture Bono singing it...and I started to melt. ^_^

I'd agree with While My Guitar Gently Weeps. I adore that song. That and Within You, Without You. That would be interesting.

'Something', which is my favourite Beatles song, because I'd like to hear Bono singing it, and 'Get Back' because I could just see them doing that on stage, it would be great!

I'm more of a Stones girl myself, though. ;)
