As I often (read like every other day) do when a picture of you playing the guitar or holding the guitar or really just being in the general vicinity of a musical instrument comes out I have a personal quiet freak out (cause I’m a sucker for a musician, hello!) and then late that night I usually send the link to Kristin (fab friend and forum mod from way back) to have a mutual love fest over. And then lament how pwned we are by you and how much we want to punch you in the face for being that rad. Seriously, it pretty much goes exactly like that every time. From complete ecstasy to rage and annoyance in 5 minutes. Yes, that’s what you do to me.
So last night was no different. Some random picture from Remember Me came out of you holding that guitar and we went into rob-has-a-guitar-lets-freak-moment and then we commenced with the repeated listening of Let Me Sign and Never Think and then Kristin suggested that you should cover some songs and her pick was Work Me by the Black Keys and WOWwowweeewow was she right. And then I wondered what would I want you to cover since we’re not getting anything new out of you probably for a long time and since you already not at all covered a Dashboard Confessional album what was left?? Considering your unique voice I gotta go with either Elton John My Father’s Gun or anything by Cat Stevens like The Wind. I’d pretty much die listening to any of those songs being covered by you.
Then I took to Twitter to ask you all what your choices would be and here’s what you said…
Follow the cut to find out your picks…
You Belong to Me – Bob Dylan or Pale Blue Eyes – Velvet Underground (@_vixb)

Straight outta Compton – NWA (@myRobPattinson)
I’ll Make Love to You – Boyz II Men (@_dharv)

Anything by Jeff Buckley except Hallelujah (@apotampkin)
Never Gonna Give You Up – Rick Astley (@BiteMeBaker) we just got Rob-rolled!
Stolen – Dashboard Confessional (@suzspetals) I mean he DOES have a DC covers album! It’s totes possible!
Cold as Ice – Foreigner (for him and Kstew) and Crazy Train – Ozzy Osbourne (for Cathy the Cougar) (@veddersgirl)
The Thong Song – Sisqo (@rizzoyzuko)
I’d personally pay to see you drunk karaoke The Thong Song or I’ll Make Love to You. For realz. And then I’d laugh, really hard.
So in your dream fantasy what song would Rob cover? Would you rather Rob have been a musician or an actor? Can we have both?
