Who's on your Ben Folds Mixtape?

With the success of the Hamilton Mixtape, it had me wishing for a Ben Folds mixtape.  What artists would you like to hear cover BF songs?

Paul McCartney - Don't Change Your Plans
I really feel this song would fit his voice. It has the same kind of bouncy melody of many of McCartney's own tunes (I am, however, imagining a young McCartney singing the song, not modern day)

Michael Stipe - Picture Window
One of the best voices in his genre, I feel his vocals would kill in this one.

Hum, what could current Macca cover? I'd like to hear that heartfelt voice off of Early Days on something like Still Fighting It or Evaporated. Could make it hurt well.



Brandi Carlile just released an album of her friends covering one of her albums straight through. It'd be awesome to see a Whatever & Ever or Suburbs cover album with people Ben's friends with (Weird Al, Amanda Palmer, Ben Lee, Ben Kweller, Sara Bareilles, Josh Groban, Regina Spektor, Eef Barezelay, Ryan Lerman, Kate Miller-Heidke, William Shatner, Ringo, etc)

Paul Simon - The Last Polka
His songs frequently use dialogue-driven lyrics, so I think with some stylistic changes this song would be an interesting cover from him.

The Beach Boys - Where's Summer B, Missing the War
The former sung by Mike Love and the latter sung by Brian Wilson. Imagine the harmonies! Seriously.
