    I read that it may be either
    Click to see Spoiler:
    I Got a Woman by Ray Charles
    or
    Click to see Spoiler:
    Easy by the Commodores


    I have no idea if those are accurate.

    Well Suncat beat me to it. But that's what I've heard as well. PEACE !!

    Do you think that either of these songs fit Taylor's style at all ?

    More importantly -- DO YOU LOVE THE SONGS.

    Remember, no matter how good you are, song choice will either make or break you ( see for example -- Nadia Turner last season).

    I don't know the first song and I hate the second one [tho if anyone could make that tune sound good, Taylor could]. I think it's unlikely Taylor would be choosing the second one.

    The first one is a real lively, up-tempo song that would be perfect for Taylor Hicks. It's the second song that I haven't heard of.

    This guy is so unique and likeably so. However, his jerky body movements make me nervous. He is definitely and has a nice voice. I predict he'll go far.

    Hmm...I love the second song but I've heard that second song messed up SO many times before that I am kinda hoping for the first song. I'm not saying he'd mess it up too but I just think the first would be better overall.

    Wow. That is some list. Gets my toe tappin' just to read it.

    It's not on his list of Van Morrison tunes, but I'd love to hear him do the Ice Cream Man.

    Sendin' it out to all the ladies -- oh yeah!

    Also, I'd like to know the sales figures of non-winners who made albums post-idol ( other than Clay.

    Specifically :

    LaToya London ...
    Kimberly Locke ...
    Tamyra Gray ...
    Bo Bice ...
    Diana Degarmo ...
    George Huff ...
    Thanks for any info you or anyone can provide.
    I have info on some of these people's sales and I will post it in their respective threads.
    If it's in Taylor's thread it's just going to get buried.

    Off the top of my head, though, I know that Bo's single and his album are already Gold (TRT has sold over 520,000 copies so far) and Josh Gracin's album has sold about 200k more than that. I think Tamyra, Kim L., and Diana D. are all somewhere around 200K in sales, with LaToya's and George's way under 100k (but they were released not long ago). William Hung, I think, may have sold more copies of his album than anyone 'from' Idol except Kelly, Clay, Carrie, Ruben, Fantasia, Bo, and Josh G.

    Remus, thanks for reminding me about Wikipedia. Sometimes that's the quickest place to find info (which is usually at least semi-accurate, anyway).
    Dogs have owners. Cats have staff. ;-D
