I think they should cover Barry Manilow's "Can't Smile Without You."

No, really.  I'm totally serious.  I think the best cover songs are the ones where that take a song from a totally opposite genre and then are made awesome. Besides, HIM've done a cover of a Neil Diamond song and they've done a cover of a Tom Jones song (Sex Bomb, I believe) so they clearly need to do a cover of a Barry Manilow song since Barry Manilow is the poor man's Tom Jones. And Tom Jones is the poor man's Neil Diamond.  And, just in case you are wondering, Wayne Newton is the poor man's Barry Manilow.

In which case, they should probably also cover Dankeshen (or however you spell it)

See this lady right here hit the nail on the head.
the whole point of cover versions is not to sing the same song the exact same way it was originally recorded, its to take something that you wouldn't probably ever sing and make it your own song.

what is the point is singing it exactly the same fucking way? its boring.

they should cover something totally bizarre as un  - metal as you could possibly get.

Livin' On a Prayer...that would be it.  That part was the best.  Bon Wooovi. ;D

Or maybe a 50 Cent song.  He did say he listened to "Get rich, or try dieing." :P

It'd say on the H-I-M666 discography. I know they've done Frozen, but I don't know about Like a Virgin...

Or maybe a 50 Cent song.  He did say he listened to "Get rich, or try dieing." :P

Hell, he didn't just say listened, he liked that thing. As much as I don't like 50 Cent, it would be pretty funny to hear him cover that just for fun.

They should do 'too old to rock'n'roll" by Jethro Tull.  In the really long interview for LM on LM archives, he said that qoute.

Why, thank you very much! I'm glad someone out there shares my views. I'm really pulling for "Can't Smile Without You" and I always get my way so eventually they will be forced to cover it. Don't ask how, it's a mystery.

God, I love them doing Fade Into You!

I want to hear them do either I'll Remember or Like A Pryer. That would be so good (as far as a Madonna cover goes)

I guess as doing covers that are just plain out there, HIM could cover some Wesley Willis, like "My Mother Smokes Crack Rocks". Haha, I'd give anything to see that.

Nobody should do a Pink floyd song except for Pink floyd....especially HIM, it wouldn't be good at all. unless it was just Ville on acoustic or something maybe.
I highly recommend that you listen to Sparklehorse's cover version of "Wish You Were Here". It is really depressing and slower than before.
As for other bands playing P.F. songs, I havent heard too many good songs being done.
I heard a bootleg of S.T.P. singing "Shine On Your Crazy Diamond" and that was an ok live song even if it was with one guitar.

HIM have done too many covers, they arent doing any new songs. They are just covering the covers they did in the past. I am sure pretty soon they will do more studio tracks off the live ones they did previously.
