Thumbs up saxon to cover

If you could name a song you would like saxon to cover and put on a album or a song you could download what would that song be ?

Id have to pick Born to be wild i think saxon would do a great job on this song, not change it in anyway but just give it that powerfull saxon sound.

Obviously a motorcycle song it is i would fit nicely alongside motorcycle man, stallions of the highway, burning wheels, redline etc etc.

i remember a saxon concert i went to quite a few years ago in stockport i think it was, and it was a charity concert and the money went to disabled motorcycle riders,

Think saxon bringing out a cover of born to be wild and donating to the above charity would be well cool.

what ya think

Jimi Hendrix - All Along The Watchtower. Obviously it is different sounding but would sound great under Saxons unique stylings.

Paranoid by Black Sabbath or even Crazy Train by Ozzy. These could be gud also with Saxon as covers.

It's a week I've beeing listening to my Wishbone Ash discography and thinking how they are underrated...especially for their contribution to the twin guitars thing...

i also think paranoid would fit them very well. also grinder and rapid fire from priest (would fit them better than you've got another thing coming).

tie your mother down by queen-it would be very interesting imo
