If I produced The Singing Bee and I was EVIL

but I repeat myself
What songs would be completly evil to bring out for the final, win loads of money but only if you know all the words exactly.
I’m thinking Bob Dylan, I mean, you can’t understand him anyway.

Maybe Life is a Rock (but the radio rolled me)

Blinded by the Light

We didn’t Start the Fire

The Hook by Blues Traveler but make the contestent do the bridge.
What else?

Louie Louie!

I thought they were going in that direction with Alicia Bridges’ I Love The Night Life and the line they had to sing was ‘on the disco round’. All the contestants tried to make sense of the lyric with ‘under a disco sky’ or ‘on the disco floor’.
A few difficult choruses
Steely Dan’s Reeling In The Years.
Fleetwood Mac’s Go You’re Own Way.
Elton John’s Yellow Brick Road.
Celia Cruz’ Quimbara*
*I’d give points just for knowing the song and then the grand prize for being able to sing it.

Nirvana, “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”

R.E.M. - It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)

La Bamba.

Johnny Cash’s “I’ve Been Everywhere.”

The closing credits song from “WKRP in Cincinnati,” which wouldn’t be fair, but would probably be a lot of fun to watch contestants try.

Fuck, twickster beat me to Louie Louie!

If TV theme songs are available, I’d try the first two lines of last stanza of “The Addams Family.”

That’s great, it starts with an earthquake,
birds and snakes and aeroplanes,
and Lenny Bruce is not afraid.

Take it!

They did that one - it was hilarious

The Jean Genie by Bowie.

(From memory)
Eye of a hurricane
Listen to yourself churn
World serves its own needs
Dummy serve your own needs

Poysyn: :eek: I might have watched that just to see people crash and burn.

A better R.E.M.–What’s the Frequency, Kenneth? :eek:

If the show was on HBO or Showtime, I’d love to see them try Closer by NIN :smiley:

I’d pick “Immigrant Song” and tell them they had to hit the high notes for it to count.

Nah. If kitties can sing it anybody can.

I’d pick “Blinded By the Light”. Has anyone ever figured out what that second line is? Something about “wrapped up like a douche, another loner in the night”?

You could always use the theme to Giligan’s Island, but, use it from the first season when the Professor and Mary Ann are not named.

Revved up like a Deuce*, another runner in the night.

*granted, very poorly pronounced.

I think “La Bamba” with non-Spanish speaking contestants would be good.

Yo no soy marinera! Yo no soy marinera! Soy capitan, soy capitan, soy capitan.
Hey, I also know all the lyrics to “We Didn’t Start the Fire,” and many of the songs mentioned so far. As I’ve said many a time, I really, really need to be on this show.

Letters To Cleo’s “Here And Now.”
