Heather would very much love to play songs of your choice acoustically on her upcoming tour titled “A special acoustic evening” in October/November 2009. And she would want to make the songs special as she stated: "And special is what I am working on. It won’t be a folky thing – more post modern I hope." Well that's what she told us in her recent blog:

http://www.heathernova.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=4497&forum=5

So please post here what you want to listen to on her upcoming tour! I will forward everything you post here to Heather, will send her the link to this thread anyway!

"Fool for you"
"Throwing fire at the sun"
"What a feeling".

And the following song request is a special one, because it' s not a song from Heather: "Bulletproof" by Radiohead.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfJsrJ-lKGc

As far as I know she also liked their album "The Bends" and therefore this could be a personal association for Heather. I would love to hear this song. It would be interesting to hear how she sings this song. But I guess that this is not really realistic, unfortunately.

What I would like to hear her sing is "One Step Up". This is a Springsteen song from the 1988 'Tunnel Of Love' album.
This is a song about a relationship going bad. It's slipping away and there's actually not much you can do about it. Whatever you try, the relationship turns the wrong way. As the lyrics go "one step up and two steps back". "Who's wrong and who's right, another battle in our dirty little war".
Everybody who has a good relation going bad in their lives can relate to that.
Heather always had a knack for making a cover like it was her own song. Yes, yes, i'm aware of "I'm on fire". "One Step up" could be the follow up 15 years laters. Not every story ends well... but that's life...
The question always is "Who's wrong and who's right". The main character in this song doesn't jugde, not himself, nor his partner. He/she only tells the feeling involved. He/she is only looking for a good feeling to hang to, even if its for one moment. That's a strength Heather has in her songs too. She let's us feel her feelings, her desires, her hurt. She brings a similar feeling in "Maybe Tomorrow", you know what I mean?

I always thought that the lyrics and music didn't quite match in the original. For years now, i wondered how somebody like Heather would translate this song...

In the announcement she wrote that she wanted to create a lot of textures and feels. So that's the reason I wanted to do the input of this song.


ps. When reading the above I DO have a happy and good life and a sweet sweet partner. :)

moerie -

That's a good suggestion for a cover, where I think she could do a really good interpretation in capturing the spirit of the song. I recall that Raul Malo (The Mavericks) did a nice take of "All That Heaven Will Allow" from the same "Tunnel Of Love" album. His version used his mellifluous Roy Orbison-like voice and imbued the song with a certain sweetness.

One that comes to mind for me that I'd love see see Heather Nova or someone of her musical skills covering is a hauntingly sweet song by Tanya Donelly/Belly called "Sweet Ride." There's an acoustic version on YouTube:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IuM6ByWEHkw

But the original B-Side with a pedal-steel guitar and Juliana Hatfield harmonizing is even better. There's a fairly long clip of it here that showcases the pedal-steel (last song on the list):

How about Heather singing Roger Hodgson's song ?

"Give a little bit" or "Know who you are"

I think two artists whith same sensibility

Hehe, nice one Bene I was going to enter the competition but I don't think foot tapping and humming counts as an instrument. Impossible to choose which songs – I'd like to hear them all! I think Say Something would be great but so would all the others – spoilt for choice

Hm, I wouldn't be so sure about your choice of instruments - since Heather promised a "post modern" concert and encouraged the paper cup competitors to use "unusual" instruments as well - you might give it a try.

Oh, and I certainly hope that some of your song wishes will be fulfilled!

True, on Everytime, Heather whistles, and in concert Heather even invited everybody to whistle along during this song. So when "whistling" counts as an instrument, why not foot tapping or humming?

Not sure if lizards in amps make any noise, but well i recommend the treefrogs, not in amps so!
They doesn't need to be the same ones as on the album, they all sing beautyful at night! I know what I am talking of, as I was at Bermuda two times so far.

Hehe, treefrogs would be great Don't have too many of those around London unfortunatrly . Whatever Heather decides to play will be great. I'd like "Say Something" with treefrogs as backup.

Heather started to rehears with Arnulf so I guess that most of the setlist is fixed by now. Nice suggestions have been made and a lot to choose from. I am curieus if we reconize one of the suggestions at the concert.

Heather, PLEASE sing "glow stars", "spirit in you", or even read something from "the sorrowjoy", like "the singing state" or "the wave" or "moods" or "firefly dreams" or "joy" or "I can smell the rain coming" when you are in Stuttgart (or Cologne) !

Don't forget "island" and "fool for you", too!

I would really appreciate it if see could play " A V A L A N C H E "!!!

AVALANCHE
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
I lie in a field, in the trailerpark of my dreams
Saving up for someday, but what does someday mean?
And I'm young, but I let it slip on by
I'm co-dependent and I'm lost inside

(Chorus A)
And you, you look like freedom
You look like the avalanche I need
The avalanche I need

(Verse 2)
And there's a road, leads away from here
And every day I stand in place and I watch it disappear
And there's a bird, circles in my mind
Security's a whore in me that never lets me fly

(Chorus B)
And you, you look like freedom
And you, you look like change
You look like the avalanche I need
The avalanche I need

(Break)
With your sunburned soul
And your hunger for the road
I'm snowblind and I'm crying after
Yeah, like nothing matters

When you go down, take me
When you go down, yeah, make me
Go down
I got a hunger you could feed

(Chorus C)
You're the avalanche I need
The avalanche I need

(Verse 3)
And I know it's a fine line divides
The place I'm looking for and what's inside
And I know it's a long, long way
Through the outskirts of everyday

(Chorus B)

(Denouement)
Avalanche
Coming over me, avalanche
It's coming over me, mmm, avalanche

(do do do do do - do do do do do)
Avalanche
(do do do do do - do do do do do)
Coming over me, avalanche
(do do do do do - do do do do do)
Ooh, avalanche

(do do do do do - do do do do do)
Ooh, avalanche
(do do do do do - do do do do do)
Avalanche
(repeat)

(do do do do do)
