Ella Fitzgerald - Summertime.

Slow chilled-out Ibiza beats to start, building to a proper arms aloft house piano / everything but the kitchen sink production.

Yes please.

The Korgis - Eveybody's Got To Learn Sometime, think it would suit Neil's voice and would be a great done with synths :-)
Kate Bush - Running Up That Hill

They have often expressed their admiration of Depeche Mode over the years. "Policy of Truth" or "Lie to Me" would be good choices, but there's many other DM songs that would suit them as well.

I would love to see them do Popcorn. Just to add it to my collection of 800+ versions.

It should be something completely unexpected and un-PSB-esque (like they did in 2013 with "The last to die" by Bruce Springsteen):

- Any Pink Floyd-song (f.ex."Money" or "Wish you were here")
- Any blackmetal-song (f.ex. "Chainsaw Gutsfuck" by Mayhem or "The Pentagram Burns" by Satyricon)
- Any hiphop-song (f.ex."This is America" - Childish Gambino or "F*ck tha police" - N.W.A.)

Don't respect something that has no respect
Don't sympathize with something that has no sympathy
Don't understand something that has no understanding
Don't give them their freedom, because they're not going to give you yours

Epic stuff right there!

“Wish you were here” is a solid choice!

Love this song and it has the necessary melancholy and the Pets can drop a nice mid tempo dance beat over this

Can see the Pink Floyd hardcore going apoplectic if this ever came to pass!

I always thought 'Whispering your Name' sounded very PSB as it is

I think a cover of “Give me the Night” by George Benson could work.

A mega-banging updating of Damian's version of "The Timewarp", with Sylvia Mason-James belting out the backing vocals. Sure Chris could create a groove for that!
