"Octane Twisted"-Porcupine Tree

Instrumentation is good, vocals should be in BB's range...let's hear it!

EDIT:  Here's a link to see what UM has played before and when...

I think Po Jama People was done in tag team fashion with Moe. at Summercamp a few years ago. I know they've played City of Tiny Lites, Dirty Love, and Willie The Pimp. I'm pretty sure that's it, are there anymore?

You Don't Love Me - The Allman Brothers

I think they would have a lot of fun with this one, considering it is just a typical blues song with a fun little riff in it, with jake, bb, and joel trading off solos

Life During Wartime - Talking Heads
I wasn't overly impressed when they played it with moe. over the summer (7/7/10).  It was clearly UM's song however (Rob was reading lyrics off a sheet of paper) and has been played once before as a BB and Kris sit-in with moe.  Perhaps UM could perform it better by themselves?  Or maybe this will just pop up again when members of the two bands share the stage?

Did you ever listen to that hair metal BeeGee's cover band that BB sat in with? I think they were called Tragedy?

Tragedy played out here and it was one of the most fun concerts I've ever been a part of. I think the best part was a guy in the band that we saw STRETCHING before the show, full on calisthenics. he then proceeded to take the stage with a mic that was PURPOSELY not turned on and a cowbell. Pure hilarity ensued. more combinations with that band would truely be EPIC!!!!

Who Knows What Tomorrow May Bring* - Traffic * w/Kevin Sinclair or Josh Redman on sax - been saying for years how sick a Hangover > Who Knows What Tomorrow May Bring > Hangover would be!
Glad - Traffic - imagine what Joel would do with this song
FM - Steely Dan - I think BB or Jake would sing this very well and it's got some great signature changes that are an UM staple
Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin - seems so cliche but BB handles Zeppelin vocals well and I think we would all just die hearing Jake do that Jimmy Page solo leading into the end
Us and Them* - Pink Floyd * w/Sinclair or Redman on sax

For some more contempory stuff:
Aerodynamic - Daft Punk - it would be sweet if they actually did the song but I would settle for an Aerodynamic jam; one of my favorite Daft Punk songs ever! Jake would own that guitar section and probably turn it into an epic solo!
Mr. Brightside or Jenny Was a Friend of Mine (for a better bass song) - The Killers - would be kinda weird but they would do both better than The Killers
Ambling Alp or Rome - Yeasayer

I know there's so many more songs I'd love to see them cover but I'm drawing a blank so I will be back with more!
