    Something really old would be nice. As in pre-20th century.

    This may sound a little wierd, but I'd like to hear Mike and Per's take on Scarborough Fair by Simon and Garfunkel. I think they could really do justice to the song and for some reason the song just seems to fit the Opeth mold.

    Pink Floyd's "The Nile Song" with death metal vocals. I think that would make an excellent Opeth cover.

    Sorry for resurrecting this thread from page 6, but I just heard this song on the radio and (since I've laways liked it, even though it's a radio-friendly pop song) I felt like it would be a really great song for Opeth to cover.

    I'm talking about "Moonlight Shadow" by Mike Oldfield.

    What do you guys think. Anyone else like that song? It's got great guitar melodies and chord-progressions that would adapt well to Opeth's style...

    For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, here's a link. Make sure to listen to the end, as there's a great solo...
    Now, just imagine this a little slower, a bit doomy, transposed into a minor key or something.

    Holy shit - I was thinking the exact same thing when I heard it on the radio last week...

    Colossus by Borknagar
    Time by Pink Floyd
    A Change Of Seasons by Dream Theater

    Any of those would be epic to me

    Opeth could cover Britney Spears and turn it into the best music ever... I'm not suggesting that they DO cover Britney Spears, I'm just using her as an example because it's the worst music I can think of.
