    Out of all songs in any way related to the word blues, I find that one to be the worst. God its awful. And actually not even that bluesy.

    I'd like to hear Opeth cover the following songs:

    Long Cool Women In A Black Dress - The Hollies

    Low - Cracker

    Like Angels Weeping (The Dark) - Kataklysm, Mikael's voice would really do this song justice. The instrumental parts of the song are excellent but the vocals sound terrible (no offence intended).

    id like to hear opeth do emperor covers but like old emperor like in the night side eclipse it seems kind of dumb but with the opeth spin on it i think it might be kind of neat since some of the older opeth albums have alot of black metal spin on it

    Opeth should do a fucking CAMEL cover, like "Another Night".

    A Death cover: "Sacred Serenity".

    Morbid Angel's "God of Emptiness" and Metallica's "To live is To Die" are great ideas too.

    It just occurred to me that Opeth could do an amazing cover of Focus's Hocus Pocus.

    I also want to hear Mikael yodel. :D

    i know they already did a Celtic Frost cover, but they should cover more of CF's stuff. opeth knows what they're doing and how not to screw up covers of good bands like frost.

    Metallica - "Fade To Black"

    I'd like to see Mikael growl this "No one but me can save myself, but it's too late
    Now I can't think, think why I should even try
    Yesterday seems as though it never existed
    Death Greets me warm, now I will just say good-bye "

    In Flames - "Jester Script Transfigured"

    The verse should be clean instead of distorted vocals.

    Trains by Porcupine Tree! Imagine Opeth making a heavier version of that song, and with Mike's wonderful voice on top of that!
