What song would you choose for Stratovarius to cover. It can be any song, any genre. Just let your whishes fly.

Mmm... How about "Emerald Sword" from Rhapsody?? It would be very interesting, just imagine Stratovarius performing a 100% symphonic, epic metal song! :P
Also, I would like Strato to cover "Alien Nation", from Scorpions. The "Blackout" cover it's f*cking great!!!

I would like to hear a Fleetwood Mac cover simply because FM is my girlfriend's favorite band and I think Lindsey Buckingham is an awesome guitar player. I'm sure Timo T would sound awesome playing "I'm So Afraid", "Second Hand News" or "Go Insane".

Stairway To Heaven by Led Zeppelin, I'm sure TK would sing it great. Or maybe some of the slower DT stuff, like The Spirit Carries On, Through Her Eyes or Wait For Sleep.

They already made a cover of a Scorpions music, but i will prefer:
- Rime of the Ancient Mariner of Iron Maiden or
- Keeper of the Seven Keys of Helloween.


Well it's my opinion, i think a epic song should be a good challenge.

Bah. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles all the way. And they could dress up correspondingly, too, and Mr. Tolkki could be Shredder.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? :?, nah, Power Rangers could fit perfectly in the Strato style (Just picture Kotipelto dressed as the green ranger shouting out loud, GO GO POWER RANGERS, and the public shouting that chorus too :D), TT can be Red ranger....

But now that i had think it twice, Kotipelto shouting COWABANGA!!! at the end of the song, is way better than that stupid "go go power rangers" thing, So Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles wins by default....

BTW Jens must be used to his Green-colored- face, so i think that he would agree if they needed to color themselves as turtles.

You sir, have officially come up with the best idea ever, i would pay $100 for a song like that, Jens doing the song of time with his keyboard, or maybe "Forest minute", Tolkki doing the "Ballad of fire" with his electric guitar...

Well.. it would be exactly the same as if they play it by themselves ;)
I have to admit that i really dont care for melodic metal bands covering melodic metal bands...

Tolkki as Shredder would be incredibly charming 8)

I also don't think Strato should cover... "new" bands. Like Sonata.

I mean, come on people. Sonata are a great band, but their style comes from the music style Stratovarius started :D

I'd love to see Stratovarius cover more "rocky" songs, like they did with Priest and Rainbow.

Stairway to Heaven(if Dolly Parton can do it--Strato can!)
Something by Elvis =P
Some Country Song, like The Closer You Get by Alabama

There are many possibilities. I'll have to Think of specific songs and edit.
