Oh...another one...Seals & Crofts.  Sad that Murphy didn't make the 24 cut...other idea...Dream Weaver?  Would love to see what current day artists can do with some of these older songs.

Paul McCartney/Wings...Live and Let Die?


I’d like that one.  It’s a James Bond song.

 

Other James Bond songs that I’d like to hear are “Diamonds Are Forever”, “For Your Eyes Only”, and “Nobody Does It Better”.  I’ve heard “Skyfall” on this show and I wouldn’t mind hearing it again.

I’m not sure that Alyssa should sing “My Heart Will Go On”.  That song is so familiar that it would be hard for anyone to do justice to it.  And no Whitney Houston songs.  They’ve been done to death.

 

I like “God Bless the USA”, though; mainly because I remember seeing a group named Re-Creation which travels around the US performing for hospitalized veterans (it’s their mission), and one season they sang this song and imitated the sculpture of Marines hoisting the American flag on Iwo Jima.

PS: Jason is going to oversing anyways, so let him...
