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..

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.
