So many good ones to choose from already! ‘Blood’ was my favourite song of last year (yes, even more than the GFIL album - and I adore that album!). It feels like an eternity ago, but they released a version of ‘Straight to You’ by Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds earlier this year that I love.
During the North American support tour for the Foo Fighters back in October they opened the show with part of ‘Bastards of Young’ by The Replacements before segueing into ‘Fear and Trembling’ - I’d love to see them release a full version of that.
Other songs I’d love to see get the Gang of Youths treatment: ‘We 3’ by Soul Asylum, ‘Without You’ by Silverchair, ‘Harpoon’ by Jebediah.
During one of the Sydney shows I saw last week, Dave on solo piano went from ‘Persevere’ into ‘A Case of You’ by Joni Mitchell. He’s also Springsteen’s ‘I’m On Fire’ on certain tour dates as well.
Whether he’s singing his own words or other peoples, I could listen to him all day!
