    since 98 I've wanted her to fuse her "bachelorette" with Björk's
    "creep" last year was amazing & I would have never thought to request
    Thank Tash for that one, it was her suggestion when a Queen cover wasn't working right?

    I don't care what songs she sings so much as how it's done

    So many of the covers were less than stellar and if I walked into an actual piano bar and heard them I'd probably cringe & leave but bc its Tori doing it we all listen but not all her covers are even remotely successful but when they are they great
    But watching bootlegs from last tour some moments were worse than performances I've heard going to karaoke
    Hope she can put quality over quantity this go around

    I'm also not a big fan of the Piano Bar because I feel that it makes the setlists less fluid. And sometimes during the 2014 Tour I felt like she was really reaching to try to come up with surprises for that section. That said, I've been listening to I Never Dreamed Someone Like You Could Love Someone Like Me, from the Carrie soundtrack, and I figured that Tori could do an amazing cover of it.

    I would also love to hear her new take on "I Ran (So Far Away)" by A Flock of Seagulls. I think her 2005 performance was stellar and I was devastated to learn that there's no single recording of her second performance of that song from Bucharest 2014

    I would love to hear a mash-up of "Wings" with "Die 4 You" by Perfume Genius. I think the two songs would work well together. Someone pass this on! Make it happen! Haha.

    What a great topic! Here are my ideas:

    * Frank Sinatra--"One for My Baby (And One More for the Road)"--This is a heartbreaking song, and even *thinking* about her covering it cues the tears. This is the tune Bette Midler covered on Carson's last episode. Tori would kill it.
    * Peter Gabriel--"Digging in the Dirt"--It's definitely in her emotional wheelhouse, and the song has a lot of shifting dynamics. It might be a tricky one to cover, but I bet it would be awesome.
    * Rihanna--"Umbrella"--I've always liked this song and heard an acoustic version of it once that was effective. It's a pop song with good bones. Those sorts of songs tend to lend themselves to strong covers.

    i would love her to do a Joanna Newsom or Sufjan Stevens cover. Or Lorde. Or Praying by Kesha. Or All Night by Beyonce. Or Queen by Perfume Genius. Or Bullet With Butterfly Wings by Smashing Pumpkins. pull some new covers out. I loved the covers she pulled out during the UG tour.

    A Cosmic Love (Florence + the Machine) mashup with Bang would put me in a grave.

    Okay, some ideas from me:

    Boy Meets Girl - Waiting On A Star To Fall (I WOULD DIE! )
    Frank Ocean - Thinking' Bout You (with a really cool synth beat)
    Bob Marley - Is This Love
    Roxy Music - More Than This
