  1. “Wade in the Water”

  2. I would love to hear Bonnie take a shot at Gillian Welch’s “Miss Ohio”.

  3. I would love to hear her sing” I can make it if you can” from the Boomtown Rats first album the lyrics are good and I know she would make it sad and yet rocking…

  4. Bonnie would be phenomenal with John Hiatt’s “Memphis in the Meantime”

  5. Three songs that jump to my mind a la Bonnie are: Just the Way it Is (Bruce Hornsby); Feelin’ Good (Anthony Newly & Leslie Bricusse); Bell Bottom Blues (Eric Clapton).
    {I also love the suggestion by Austin here of Wade in the Water.}

  6. Dan Penn’s “Do Right Woman.”

  7. DReamin with a broken heart (jon Mayer)

  8. Maybe this is wishful thinking, but how about “Skinny Love” by Bon iver. Justin’s take on her song is beautiful, I’m sure she’d do the same.

  9. How about…Bob Marley’s ‘three little birds’ …or a touch of raegae

  10. I would love to hear “Lullaby” by the Dixie Chicks.

  11. I would say “Don’t Be Shy” by Cat Stevens.

  12. Shemekia Copeland’s “Never Going Back to Memphis” or “The Other Woman” would be excellent.

  13. (I didn’t see a winner, so I’m putting my reply in there): “Mother” by Pink Floyd – I know she has the passion for it.

  14. Congratulations to Matt! You’re going to the show on us. We’ve got our fingers crossed that she’ll consider a Bon Iver cover (as well as all of these other great suggestions)! Thanks everyone.
