I think they should cover songs like Cry Freedom and 34 and Minarets more often

Nah, I'm tired of them doing covers like that! They should stick to their originals like "Watchtower"!

Seriously though, as far as covers, Madman Across the Water and Aqualung would be epic. EPIC.

One thing that I like/dislike about DMB is their seriousness on stage. I think the band, especially Dave, has come a far way in the past couple years with it, but I'd like for them to be a little sillier with some of their covers. I think Sweet Emotion was a step in the right direction. The seemingly spontaneous Money (That's What I Want) in 08. What I really want is DMB to cover a guilty pleasure song or two. Amy Grant's Every Heartbeat or Go West's King of Wishful Thinking come to mind. The horn lines are phenomenal and the overall music would fit within the context of the band.
I'm also on a Bruce Hornsby and the Range Kick right now and would love to see what the band could do with Tim using a synth effect.

Southern Cross.

I mean 5+ years ago I said Sledgehammer or Big Time and it happened with one of the two...

is there a chance?

More fun covers, for sure. Time of the Season was one of the few bright spots of 2005. Don't Fear the Reaper at the Gorge last year was some of the most fun I've had at a DMB show.

i like that over time they've seemed to do goofier and lighter things during their shows. they seemed to take themselves very seriously for a long time and i like that especially since '08 they've done a lot of fun covers, for better or worse dave embracing the showmanship role of a frontman with dances in Cornbread, ASTB, teases and fake outs, etc.

For whatever reason that shtick got really old for me really quickly. I don't like Cornbread that much (for instance), so Dave doing what feels like the same crowd-pandering dance every single time doesn't really redeem it for me. It's cool when something truly spontaneous happens, but it's become "this is just how it is now" rather than anything actually special.

I appreciate trying to add an element of fun, but when it doesn't work it just feels fake to me.

yeah i see what you're saying.

i'm indifferent to it, personally. i understand the thought behind it. the very basic no frills approach to their shows of the earlier days is cool, but i appreciate the idea of treating a concert as putting on a show and i assume that's what he's trying to do now. it can feel inauthentic because it's dave and he's just an awkward dude at almost everything, but i think more than some here (not necessarily you) i appreciate the effort to try and make their shows "bigger" for lack of a better word.

Oh yeah, I get that. I don't think I find it necessary from DMB though. They're not the kind of band where I expect a "show." If I'm going to see the Flaming Lips I expect crazy shit, or with Radiohead, some awesome screen and light effects. For DMB, just play good music and I'm happy. Especially when "putting on a show" is "add 30 seconds of spazzy dancing."

Well sure, if they're going to actually make a production out of it. But half-assing it just calls attention to the fact that you're not really trying.

To get back to the topic at hand, if they want fun covers:

Total Eclipse of the Heart. Carter or Rashawn could totally do "Turn around"

Or something by Electric Six. Gay Bar or Danger, High Voltage

they'd have to put the swearing into Total Eclipse though. Old School has basically ruined the original lyrics for me, i can't hear it and not mentally put them in.
