    Default Songs you would like to see VH remake

    Have you ever heard a song that you would like to see VH remake on a new album?
    I did this weekend.
    Its sort of a weird one - The Beach Boys - Little Honda.
    I could just imagine what Ed and Al could do with that song.
    It even has the classic type of Early Van Halen backup vocals perfect for Dave and Wolfie or Sam and Mike. (Or all of them...)

    The song would be transformed by VH.
    I have often wondered why Ed never did a version of Surf music in any of his stuff.
    Has he ever commented on liking any of the Beach Boys or other surf type music ?
    It is so California and he would work his magic and make it come alive !

    Judging from the title I thought you meant remake their own songs. If you mean cover songs they I'd like to hear them do pretty much anything but they've already done more covers in their history on studio albums than anyone (outside of dedicated "covers only" albums like Feedback or Yeah!).

    But yeah, if I had to choose I'd rather hear them do something unusual for a hard rock band like they've done in the past with Martha and the Vandellas or Linda Ronstadt instead of something like Led Zeppelin. Any Beach Boys songs would be interesting.

    I can see them doing a good "Gimme Shelter" or maybe an instrumental version of "The Song Remains The Same". I doubt Dave could do Plant justice these days, but Ed and Al would kick the dick out of it.

    He did "Wipe Out" in '86 at that Rochester, NY soundcheck bootleg. Also "Pipeline" on 11/3/86 in San Fran. The only other one I heard was "Walk--Don't Run" on the Kevin Bacon radio show interview he did in '97. But he only played a couple of notes.

    By the way, does anyone have that Kevin Bacon interview? I lost mine.

    I've always used to think when/if they reunite with Dave and for some reason decide to release a cover as their first single that should be it (for obvious reasons).

    I think a studio version of "Summertime Blues," the cover they played the most live, would be just as great as the first choice.

    Hagar did it pre-VH and even his version wasn't great, IMO.

    There was a recent discussion of Heart and VH. I'd like to hear VH do Barracuda or possibly some Crazy On You.
