OK, so this will almost certainly never happen, of course, but just for the fun of it, I'll try to think of a selection of tracks that might be featured on such an album. With YouTube links, to boot.
- 'All Along the Watchtower' from Bob Dylan. However, the arrangement would definitely have to take influence from the version of the song featured in Battlestar Galactica.
- 'Nymphetamine' from Cradle of Filth. The twist: it'd be an acoustic cover.
- 'Small Two of Pieces' from the video game Xenogears.
- 'The Needle and the Damage Done' from Neil Young. Just one of many possible choices from Neil.
- 'Sleeping Sun' from Nightwish. I don't think there are many Nightwish songs I'd feel confident performing, but this one is simple enough for even me to learn.
- 'Walls' from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Again, one of many possible choices.
- 'Cup of Coffee' from Garbage.
- 'Ice Frontier' from Skaven. OK, this is a bit of a weird choice, but it could be fun (and challenging) to do a personalised arrangement of it. Or even add lyrics...
- 'Your Rain' from Silent Hill 4. Not my favourite game of the series, but the soundtrack has some decent songs.
- 'Daylight Again' from Crosby, Stills & Nash.
And I think we have an album there, every track quite different, yet definitely 'me'. Or, that never becoming reality, a not uninteresting cross section of my taste in music, at the very least.
