What song would you most like to hear Jimmy cover?

Post by LivingOutMy2ndChance »

Is there a song Jimmy's never sang that you are dying to hear? If you're not sure whether or not he's done it, check out the Song Database.

For me, it WAS No Woman, No Cry, but that wish came true several years ago. Now, I would love to hear him sing Peaceful, Easy Feelin'.

I was lucky enough to hear Glen Frey sing this song on the Hell Freezes Over Tour in 1994, but have been thinking about what it'd sound like "Buffettized." I would love to hear Jimmy sing it!

. .for the 434th time . . I would LOVE to hear Jimmy do his variation on some 30/40's songs . .

. . there is a current car commercial with the song " What are you doin the rest of your life . . .? ? . . .north and south and east and west of your life . ? ? "

. .which is why " Slow Boat to China " is one of my favorites . .

. .wow. . .I would love to hear him croon some of those old tunes . .

. .sigh. .

Just googled "LRB" and saw that they are still playing :lol: I saw LRB in '78 in Cullowhee NC (Reid Gym) when I was in 7th grade.

Another song that is stuck in my head right now but wouldn't necessarily be a good JB cover is "Paradise by the Dashboard light" - Meatloaf

Come Dancing - The Kinks
Sugar Magnolia - The Greatful Dead
Jimmy stares
Towards the bright Pleiades
It's so strange
What his distant eye sees
Who knows why you start
Rediscovering your heart
But you do it again and again

NEVER thought of that one... good choice. :)



I always thought "Turn The Page" by Seger would work.

Someone already picked a Little Feat song, but I always thought "Oh Atlanta" would be perfect for Jimmy

Harry's "Day-O" would be classic.

But regardless of anything else, no more Stones, Beatles or Neil Diamond tunes. He kills them.

G'N'R's Welcome To The Jungle.

Ha ha. Just kidding.
