    Pretty easy to hear that. There is a song by Heavy Trash that is totally Mick's wheelhouse, can't think of which one that is though

    Anything by Bob Dylan. Everyone does Dylan better than Dylan with the exception of Rainy Day Women. Only Dylan can do that one right.

    I'd love the hear Ed Sheeran do Louie Louie.

    Even he couldn't mess that up...or could he?

    It's funny, as I was conceiving this thread I'd thought about saying Fantasy done by Judas Priest, but we've already got that pretty much, with "Another Thing Comin"

    John Denver's Country Road covered by the Lumineers or maybe Mumford & Son
    Looking Glass's Brandy covered by the Foo Fighters. I imagine creamy distortion.
    Gin Blossom's Found Out About You covered by Norah Jones as a ballad.
