it's not really a song i woumd like owen to cover but one he has already covered... i was wondering about paris 1919. because in a webradio I heard it in quite good quality and they were saying it was from the album he poos clouds... same thing with what do you think will happen next... was it released in an EP?
No, it's just a live cover of his. There have been nice quality radio sessions of it though -- check that Radio K one jules posted a day or so ago, and the Live on Fuse thing O. did with Cadence Weapon.

Owen said earlier he tried working on a cover of "Alpha Omega" by the Mountain Goats then ended up changing it into his own song. does anyone know what FF song Alpha Omega became?
and more importantly--Dont give up on Mountain Goats! I bet you'd be able to do a great verson of "Dilaudid", beging it already has an orchestra as its backbone. the bridge/chorus doesn't lend itself easily to looping, but still, you'd be able to yell "so kiss me with your mouth open!" to your crowd of adoring fans... and how great is that?
i was listening to stars on the train today and noticed that their song "theme from the stars" would be a pretty awesome cover for owen to do. it's not exactly one of their more popular songs, it's from the a lot of little lies for the sake of one big truth ep and it has this lovely piano bit that could be looped throughout and adding a violin part in place of the horns would be rad. mmmm, it has the potential to be really beautiful.
Tribulations by LCD Soundsystem is plenty loopable and I think would sound rad given the Final Fantasy treatment. Piano and violin would sound great on it. Or maybe All My Friends, that would sound just as good.

I second Tribulations. That would be insane. Or "En Gallop" by Joanna Newsom <-- I just remembered he already did Peach, Plum, Pear. Also, does anyone have a recording of him covering Fabulous Muscles?
All right, brand spankin' new here, first post. Hello, everyone.
I've kinda been obsessed with the idea of a talented string musician doing something with the music from the NES game Crystalis. It's all very simple 8-bit tracks, but it lends itself to being symphonic and rock-ish too. I tried to make it work with my little string quartet, but none of us studied composition (public school learnin'!), and downloading a midi-converting score freeware produced like 87 separate parts (hah).
Also, here's one that's very interesting rhythmically:
It'd be really interesting to hear an "analog" interpretation of this.
This is probably waay out on a limb, but another crazy rhythmic electronic challenge would be Shy Child's first album, "Please Consider Our Time". I love it.
Also, there's this really, really beautiful, moody album by a band that doesn't exist any more. "After School Special" by Iris, Bubble Core Records, some time around 1995. Lush, long guitar melodies become lush strings. The singing is soft but intense. The last two tracks especially. Anyway . . .
