Songs That U2 Could Cover
« on: April 25, 2011, 11:18:06 AM »
I was thinking of songs that U2 would be able to cover and songs that they could cover well. This is not a thread about them playing cover versions on tour, just if they were to do a cover(s), what could they pull off.

I've thought of a couple that I think they could do brilliantly.

The Cult, 'She Sells Sanctuary'. I just think that this song has the best guitar riff Edge never wrote. Imagine him on the explorer laying this song. AMAZING.

Killers, 'All These Things That I've Done'. In the 'Zane Meets U2' interview they were talking of their admiration for The Killers and stated this song in particular. Zane Lowe said it was 'the best U2 song that U2 never wrote'. The song is almost the perfect U2 song and I think Bono especially would be out of this world.

I'm just interested in what other songs U2 fans think U2 would be good covering.

Wow... They've done so many... Hmmmm.....

Maybe it's just a Bonogirl fantasy, but I would love it if Bono sang a cover of Nine Inch Nails' Closer. LOL!!! :) :) :)
