OMG!!! if TEAMJORDIS rallys together to reach the goal today......i will also record an EPs worth of cover songs for backers!!! we can choose the songs together!!!
Maybe a cover of "Something", "Let It Be", "Hey Jude" or "Helter Skelter" by The Beatles? Or maybe "Nutshell" or "Love, Hate, Love" by Alice In Chains? You could almost do a double album, 1 for originals and 1 of covers.
I hope someone pledges $5,000 OR MORE, it'd be awesome to see the UNGA'D video. I wish I had the cashola' to do it.
Ball 'n' Chain would be awesome
Please Do a cover of Hotel California by the Eagles
FEELING GOOD - NINA SIMONE. its a new dawn, its a new day, its a new life for me
When I Grow Too Old To Dream - an oldie, but lots of power, pauses and high notes.
Ooh or I just thought "Born to Run" would be amazing!
I think "Son of a Preacher Man" ala Joan Osbourne would be awesome. She KILLED it and I think you would be even better.
I'd love it if you covered a VH song.
My possible cover choice would be from INXS/Rockstar: "Man who sold the World" & Heart shaped box , not sure if possible do to copyright problems. But would sure LOVE it.
Think you would sound awesome singing "Lover of Mine" by Allanah Myles. Only somebody with a powerful voice could pull off the notes at the end, and you definitely have a powerful voice.
Love lots of the suggestions above. I can also hear you in my head singing "Babylon" and I'd LOVE to hear it with my ears. I know you could sing it with so much ache in your voice that people would say "David Gray who?." Please consider it! :)
On covers, I'd rather see songs that you can't get in other places. Itunes has several of the RockStar songs and The Voice songs. My suggestions would include Hallelujah, Stellar (Incubus), Bring Me Some Water (Melissa Etheridge), Something to Die For (The Sounds), and Believe (The Bravery)
I love the "Dog Days Are Over" suggestion, but I have to tell you, when you performed "Stronger" on the show I fell in love! I am not a music guru, so you're probably the best at picking the covers, I just can't wait to hear them!
Good going, Jordis.....keep going! The more you raise, the more you can do.....your album, the EP, touring, your SECOND album.....the sky's the limit!
(As for covers, you might also check out "Again & Again" and "Free" by the Boxing Gandhis!).
Would love to see you cover Masters of War (Dylan), but the version Eddie Vedder did on the Dylan tribute.
Congratulations Jordis! Its your time to shine!
I agree about Man Who Sold the World (and I LOVE your look in that video as well!). My other favorite covers would be Imagine and Heart-Shaped Box (also from Rock Star)
I agree--Man Who Sold the World is a must for the cover album!!! You are awesome and I can't wait to hear your new album!
http://www.youtube.com/watch… , has to be on a cover album. Noisland.com can do the licensing...
You're fans are sending you off with prayers, $ and lots of encouragment; you are amazing` you go and do your thing!
You reached your goal in one day, that just shows how freaking awesome you are Jordis!!!! Congrats, and I can't wait to hear your amazing album!!! Much Love to You and all of TEAMJORDIS
Song not strong ^^;
How about a cover of a CCR strong like Proud Mary or Bad Moon Rising?
yes you did!!!
I think some Pat Benatar would be a good cover choice for you.
Cover song suggestion - Dog Days are Over by Florence and the Machine
Can one of the covers be Helter Skelter? Please?
Yeah, for sure! ^^
Oh thought of another good one cover KD Lang's "Constant Craving"!
Congratulations! Now get to work!
Congrats on reaching your goal in mere hours! I am def not surprised. All of us JUnkies have been waiting a very long time for this! And we are all so glad to support you anyway we can. And by the way, I think your cover of Maybe I'm Amazed absolutely Killed! (would be a great inclusion for the covers album). Thanks for everything. Can't wait to get my autographed CD, and download. Keep up the good work, and Rock On!
"I'm on fire" by the boss is my vote.
Haha! ^ Right on! :)
you my dear are gonna have some sore fingers from crafting/tweeting/signing/emailing & sore lips from kissisng post cards! lol
I finally get a Jordis Unga cd! I knew this day would come! Congrats Jordis!!!!
you are there.. congrats Jordis.. you deserve all this support you are receiving. I am looking forward to hearing what you come up with.... rock on
You still have 32 days to go! You could fund more then 1 album if people keep donating!
Woot!!!!! Super kewl...super kewl...she's super keeewwwwwllll now! :-)
so that EP of covers....how about behind blue eyes?
May I request "Glorybound" by Martin Sexton. If you have never heard Jordis sing this, its outrageous! You need to hear this. So good.
I'm so happy for you. I always wondered if you had any idea how many of us still play your songs from rock star. You really move people !
Since we made goal today, I'd like to put my vote in for the EP for "She's Only Happy in the Sun" I think you would kill that track! WOO HOO!!!
WE MADE IT, #TEAMJORDIS! CONGRATULATIONS!
Congrats!!! Feels amazing to be part of this, especially after many of us have waited since 2005 for the chance to get a full album! (or more! :) )
Well, you're about to hit your goal in a matter of hours. You have no idea how proud I am to be a supporter of you and your music. You are an amazing woman and artist and you should be very proud of yourself. When something is a part of you and ingrained in your soul, you can never give up on it...and you haven't! Much love to you.
Now let's help pay her rent while she makes the album!
I FEEL LIKE FIREWORKS SHOULD BE SHOOTING OUT OF MY COMPUTER!!!! You have amazing, loyal fans!
