We are asking him to cover bad songs to make them good, not cover excellent songs and make them better.

What about orgasmic chemistry.

I can expand the definition of that if anyone wants to roll around to my Fortress of Love.

You actually like it? I wasn't trying to be mean or anything, I just genuinely think that song is awful.

Don't Stop Believing is an awesome song. Covering it acoustically would only make it more awesome.

I would like in no way to see this song covered. It's brilliant as it is and, no offense to Johnny, his version would just be worse. As would everyone else's. NMH needs to be left alone and never covered. Ever.

I can't bear the lyrics either, but to be fair I've not actually LISTENED to the song ... ever. I'd be interested in an acoustic version though.

Hey, at least it wasn't Abba. And also, judging by the forum populace's negative reaction to my disliking of Journey I guess I will have to just have to actively listen to some more of their music. Maybe there is something I missed? Teach me to believe!

They do an acoustic version.  I just hate the vocalist.  He sounds just like every other vocalist from every other grunge/hard rock band like Nickleback.

Oh, man, do they suck! It's very nearly the worst song I've ever heard. Bad vocals, bad lyrics... you can almost hear the bad hair. ick.

The only song I hate more is Crazy Bitch by Buckcherry. It seems like everyone in this town loves that song. I would think it entirely impossible to make that song better. There is no escaping the lyrics. Kudos to Johnny C's covers. I listened to them all. JC = rad.

Ditto on the "Crazy Bitch" thing. 

It suddenly occurred to me that, if you really want a challenge, you should do a cover of anything by Mindless Self Indulgence.

The love for Journey baffles me.

I am making "Don't Stop Believin'" next on my list as a demonstration of where I sit on the issue.

Once again, we're looking for BAD songs here, not the most wonderful songs to ever pass lips and electric guitar.

I don't want to complain but I've noticed that there is direct correlation between JC getting a girlfriend and the abandonment of this thread. Right before he was going to record my choice of song.

I was actually about to come here and apologize for this exact thing.

I also have two shows happening in the space of four days so a lot of time has been consumed by band practice. I'll record your song when I get home and shower after work today. I might get off early, who knows?
