Default New versions?

If U40 was going to release an album which would consist of some renewed versions of their old (and not only) songs, which songs would you like to see on this album?

I would like to hear a renewed version of I can't help falling in love (their best song in my opinion) One In Ten (their latest live versions of it are much better than original song so it might be interesting) Hmnn, what else. Tyler, I love live version from Sopot 2001 (it's faster than original version). Kingston Town, Higher Ground - their classic hits. It would be nice to hear new version of Where Did I Go wrong and You're always pulling m down too. That's all I think. I wait for your opinions

An idea thats come up a lot before, although it would be intresting to hear what old songs would sound like re-worked I think its better that the UB's get on with writing, recording new material as most acts that do re-record there own songs rarly ever better the originals.

new versions would work, in a totally new way...I'd like to see 'New' versions of their singles, with a sweet orchestral revamp.
Let Martin/Brian grab a few of their past hits..food for thought...king...my way of thinking...
and class'ic them up like the arrangements on the openin' of their recent tour.

bOi...mek y'rock....

would love to hear something like that but if it ever happened i doubt it would be released into the mainstream charts as i just can't see it being financially very beneficial but would be great if they could do it and make it available on-line or something.

In fact what i'd love to hear more than anything is a UB40 version of the Beatles Love album which was released a year or so ago. The songs re-worked and jumbled all up like George Martin did for that one would sound amazing.
