Songs You'd Like Saxon To Cover
 
Just wondering what songs you think Saxon should cover.

I'd like to hear the band do a cover of Chris de Burgh's "Don't Pay The Ferryman". Domain did a decent version of it a few years ago, but I think Saxon could make a great rock song out of it.

Yes, I can hear Biff singing "Don't Fear The Ferryman". Great comment and suggestion. On a side note... almost 2000 people have viewed this thread and you're the only one that has the balls to post a reply. Respect to you my fellow Saxon fan.

I don't know a particular song, but I'd suggest Saxon do something of Wishbone Ash (Yes, Biff did Throw Down Your Sword on his solo album).
Some Uriah Heep-song, Praying Mantis-songs, A Rolling Stones-song called Hold On To Your Hat; it's pretty heavy and than Saxon makes it even a bit heavier.. Helter Skelter of The Beatles; it's been covered by other bands, but maybe Saxon can do it with a twist..
No No No of Deep Purple, Shoot To Thrill by AC/DC. I read on Blabbermouth that Saxon has a contract for another (cover?) album and Biff like to include Runnin' With The Devil by Van Halen and make it a very heavy Black Sabbath- like version.
I can hear them doing 2 Minutes To Midnight of Iron Maiden as well.
Delivering The Goods of Judas Priest.. :D

Here some more: Black Sabbath: Hole In The Sky. Kiss: Larger Than Life. Accept: Neon Nights. Motorhead: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Rush: Something For Nothing. Triumph: Hooked On You. Dio: Gypsy. Prince: Let's Go Crazy. Rainbow: Do You Close Your Eyes?

Thoughts on some of the covers album songs.

STONE FREE

Graham Oliver must have soiled himself finding out Saxon is covering a Hendrix song.

THE ROCKER

One of my favorite Thin Lizzy songs.

HOLD THE LINE

This is my preferred type covers. Out of left field with a wide open range for interpretation possibilities.

SEE MY FRIENDS

A song about homosexuality?

I really like the possibilities that are available with this list. Thanks for not coving anything obvious like Iron Maiden/Judas Priest.
