I’m afraid to post this because someone else will and then they’ll be two different threads and then there will be mass confusion and the world will come to a fiery end. But I can’t wait any longer.
Here’s my wish list of songs. I’d love to hear (or see-- whatever) other people’s song wish lists.
Mandisa-- Still waiting for Brickhouse.
Gedeon-- I want someone to sing Whose Loving You, and he’s the best candidate.
Paris-- Dr Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band’s I’ll Play The Fool. It’s jazzy and would show off her vocal control and beauty.
Breena-- Bonnie Tyler (or is it Kim Carne) Heartbreak. She’s got that rough edge that would fit this song well.
Ace-- George Michael’s One More Try. He can cheese it up real good with this song.
Chris-- Anything because he’s so beautiful
Crooner Guy-- Mack the Knife. Why not.
The other guy with the almost bald and sideburns-- Um, I got nothing.
Taylor-- Go on and sing A Little Help From My Friends Joe Cocker style.
So am I! It’s such an amazing song, and I think it’s adaptable to lots of different kinds of voices. (I sing it at karaoke! Not very well, but it’s fun…) Axl Rose’s voice is high enough that many of the women could do it…I think I’d most like to see it sung by a female, in fact.
I am absolutely digging Kat McPhee and think she would do a sublime version of “At Last,” providing she tones down the vocal gymnastics.
I was a little disappointed in Constantine’s “Kiss from a Rose,” and if Ace is smart, he’ll pull that one out on 90s night instead of some boy band BS.
I know this is cheesy, but I think Will should do something slightly emo-rock. (I know, lame, but so is this corny show.) I’m not all that familiar with the genre (because I’m older than 17), and it may be so over, but yeah. Something melodic but angsty, and the girls will go crazy, and he’ll get the edginess he needs.
I’ll think of more later, I’m sure. I tend to think of songs and try to place them with singers, instead of taking my favorite contestants and placing them with songs.
