    Default Hypothetical: What Cover Songs Would You Like to Hear MJ Sing?

    Michael rarely did cover songs and of course that is perfectly okay. BUT, hypothetically, if he DID perform a cover song....or record one, or release it.....what song (or songs) would you like to hear him sing?

    This is not meant to be a serious "music analysis" thread.....I'm just interested in people's opinions and their general musings and day dreaming about this. Sometimes I hear a beautiful ballad or an R & B song, or something with funk and soul on the radio and I just think to myself, what a great job Michael would have done, with that song.



    A song that I was listening to, just a couple of days ago, that I think would be beautiful with Michael singing it, is "All of Me" by John Legend. Mostly, I love the lyrics and I love the piano accompaniment. I'd be really interested to hear what Michael would do with it. He'd probably need to sing it in a higher key.....but even if he didn't.....oh, baby!

    Wasn't there a rumour that he recorded a cover of Strawberry Fields Forever for Decade? Wether he did or not this is definetely a great song he should have covered!

    Nice thread!
    I would have been more than interested in hearing Michael do covers of songs that I think would have suited his voice. What comes to mind right now: Stevie Wonder - Superstition, Barry White - Never gonna give you up.
    There is this snippet, where Michael is singing an Elvis song for his mother. Wish that was longer. It sounded great!

    The Week’nd - I Feel It Coming. It has MJ written all over it, man his voice would take this track to another level completely.

    Mike has already sort of sung an Elvis song called For The Good Times, although it was first released by country singer Ray Price. But the one I heard the most was Al Green's, and Al's version is different from the others, his doesn't have a country sound. A lot of those early Elvis songs were remakes anyway, he wasn't the original singer. His versions just became more well known than the others. Just like some of Whitney Houston's 1980s hits were remakes of little known songs. Many people think Whitney was the original singer.

    A singer doesn't have to do an imitation of another singer to sing a song. Aretha Franklin's version of Eleanor Rigby is a totally different arrangement from The Beatles original. Respect by Rotary Connection is different from the Otis Redding original and the more well known Aretha Franklin version. Gloria Gaynor's version of Never Can Say Goodbye is a disco arrangement instead of a ballad like the Jackson 5 version. Celia Cruz has a salsa version of Gloria's song I Will Survive and Chantay Savage has a slow version. There's different versions of I Heard It Though The Grapevine by Gladys Knight & The Pips, Marvin Gaye, and Roger Troutman and none of them sound alike. James Brown released different versions of his own songs in various years.
