Default What songs would you like Shiina Ringo to cover?

This came about when me and my sister were discussing which Japanese artists should cover which ABBA songs and I couldn't think of any good ones for SR. I'd like to hear your opinions on not just ABBA songs, lol, but anything you think would sound cool sung by her.
English, Japanese, or any other language. Doesn't have to be something you think she actually WOULD cover, just what you would like to hear.

I kind of would like to hear her sing Unwritten (Natasha Beddingfield) but I'm not quite sure how that would sound...

moooore enka.

Sailor Fuku to Kikanjuu would be a perfect song for Ringo.

Oh, and a song like Music Fighter of Motto by JAM would be AWESOME for Ringo's vocals. YUKI and Ringo should do a side project together, it would be AWESSSOOOOMEEE, I'd probably cream my pants.

how about "you learn" by Alanis Morissette?

i think Ringo's vocal fits well into Alanis's songs :p

by the way, this is one of the "100 Questions for Ringo fans".

As much as I'd want her to cover something intricate and all, I'd really like to see her add a degree of intricacy to a typical pop-song. At least, I'd find it more interesting. Like, perhaps a Madonna song? Or maybe Girls Aloud? This isn't due to general preference-I'd seriously like to see her revolutionize the typical sort've pop tracks they release.

I also nominate more enka. She kicks copious amounts of ass every time she does it. Shiina Ringo + Hibari Misora = some good stuff. Enka originals would be sweet too.

I still stand by the fact that hearing her do Queen would be great. My Melancholy Blues, White Queen, and Death on Two Legs would be badass.

enka would definitely be the best choice :p everyone wants her to sing enka. and i was sincerely hoping that "utite myoli ~ so no ni" would be a full enka-covering album (what a slim hope!)

i also like Ringo's "Tokyo no onna". the Peanuts' original version is quite plaintive, but Ringo sang it in a very rock erotic way, which suit her style perfectly. i found Ringo like these oldies very much :p

she would NEVER do it but um I was just listening to Melanchonista by YUKI and it would be a PERFECT match for her image and vocals. it would definitely surprise a lot of people though.

"Black Sabbath" by Black Sabbath, or "Pyramid Song" or "Knives Out" by Radiohead.
