Inspired by the discussion about the cracking cover of Anthem, I got thinking what would be a great "fantasy" superstars cover album.

To try and keep things lean, I'm going by just four simple guidelines (not "rules", the mavericks here just flout them anyway): 

1) no duplicated artists;
2) artists past/present permitted;
3) real-life covers permitted;
4) limited to 10 tracks.

Here goes:

Grand Designs - ARW: Anderson, Rabin, Wakeman (w/ Lee Pomeroy and Lou Molino)

La Villa Strangiato - The Aristocrats

A Passage To Bangkok - Iron Maiden

The Camera Eye - Dream Theater (Images & Words era)

Tears - Richard Marx

Tom Sawyer - Muse

Time Stand Still - FM feat. Emma Hewitt

Subdivisions - Howard Jones

Freewill - Mr Big

Closer To The Heart - U2

I think they're all perfectly suited!

Is it still not too late to vote in your poll, by the way? 😜

Nah feller...overwrought in the studio and pitchy live.

Of that ilk, Kelly Clarkson is far superior.

Besides, Richard Marx is tailor-made for that song imo.
