Dear American Idol contestants,

Postby russ » Wed Feb 09, 2005 12:00 pm

Dear AMERICAN IDOL Contestants,
Please do yourselves, and all us viewers a favor and STOP singing the same, tired songs that have been sung the previous 3 seasons. I mean, how many times can a person listen to squawking renditions of "AIN'T NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH" anyway?
My advice to any contestants that are still on the show, is to do your homework and find songs that showcase your VOICE.
Don't pick a song just because YOU like it. Don't pick a song that is out of your range. It may sound great on the radio, but if you can't sing it well, whats the point?

Another thing about 99% of these kids on the show that drives me KRRRAAAZY is how they over eununciate every syllable and warble on too long trying those damn vocal acrobatics. OK, now we all know that you can sing in the key of E and quaver your voice excitedly. But it doesn't add to the song. It only makes you look like you are showing off.

And a big F.U. to Mtv for making an entire generation of kids grow up who cant sing without having to act like theyre in a video. Can't anyone just stand there and put all their energy into the SONG and not have to do the hands and the moves?
It looks all too practiced.

But like I said earlier, pick something to sing that hasn't been done yet on the show.
Here are a list of songs that I would like to hear sung on the show.
These are songs that I feel would be GREAT for someone who wants to really stand out and emote.

1. We've Got Tonight- Bob Seger
2. I Love You More Today Than Yesterday- Stevie Wonder
3. I Can Hear Music- Ronnettes
4. 2 Out Of 3 Ain't Bad- Meatloaf
5. Life On Mars- David Bowie
6. Here, There and Everywhere- The Beatles
7. When You're Smiling- recorded over the years by many.
8. Little Girl Blue- Janis Joplin arrangement
9. Try A Little Tenderness- Otis Redding arrangement
10. Heroes- The Bowie version- not the recent horror I heard on the radio.

Myself, I would have some interest in AI if the contestants sang stuff like 'TV Set' by The Cramps. In fact, I would pay good money to see that.

I always loved that MTV commercial where Jimmy Fallon plays a "Joe Dirt" type and sings "Ace of Spades" in front of the AI judges.

I bet that's fucking hilarious. I watched a bit last night and they had these three longhairs that they kept calling "the rockers" when in reality I think they were all members of Nickle Of Mudd.
