That's actually a very good list. Since, you know, most lists like this are just sort of random. Except those mostly seem pretty spot-on and interesting, especially the Linkin Park and Tweet ones.

(I like doing this because my immediate impulse is "oh oh I can't wait to go home and try to start putting together a song that actually sounds like e.g. Movietone doing 'Does this Hurt.'")

Wow, I was pretty fucking weird two and a half years ago. I have since refined my desire to hear a discofied cover of "Welcome to the Jungle" done completely a'la Gamble/Huff. That Slash echo-chamber guitar intro would sound murderous as an R&B string section.

I have also decided (thanks to a reminder of said song's existence via VH1 Classic) that The Alan Parsons Project's "Don't Answer Me" needs to be covered by the Beta Band as a proper farewell single.
