Ok parts of me like this list.. and other parts do not..
Lil: MacArthur Park
Everyone one said she would do Donna Summer.. and if this holds true, she is. HOWEVER given her voice and range, I would almost she did the Richard Harris version. His was 1968, at the beginning of Disco and Donnas’ was in '78 at the end, so either would fit. As horrid as this song is, i still love it.. in the end I do not think Lil with do it justice (in either form) and I also fail to see where she can bring something new to it. She blew her gosp-it-up card on last week's The Rose. Not to mention that she should have been the one to do Stand By Me in its original gospel version.
Do you remember the twenty-first night of September?
I think this would be a good choice for Matt, and again as much as I hate to admit it, I still like some Disco and EW&F were some of the best artists in the era. The music they wrote still stands up today. This may be the song that Matt needed to do to save his butt this week.
Kris: How Deep is Your Love
This should be interesting.. I am not sure he could pull it off. Adam could, no doubt, hands down, grand slam. Kris, not sure. He needed to go with a ballad, and this is, with little doubt, the best known ballad of the Disco Era in my opinion. Will that help him.. or hurt him? Barry Gibb has a very distinct voice, he will be a tough copy. (see Adam comments again above)
Allison: Dancing Queen
Wow, no. I was on my knees praying when I read this part of the list that it was not true. As many jokes that were being made about it, I think the only one this season… hell in ANY season... that would have the vocal chops to pull off ABBA, is Adam Lambert. Not that I would really like to see him do Dancing Queen, but he could and I would not bat a perfectly MANscaraed eyelash at it.
Adam: Call Me
Sure, why not? He could muster a more than passable Blondie/Debbie Harry tribute here. I don’t think there is much that he would have to or even should change bout this song. I just think there were better songs out there for him to do.. but if nothing else, Blondie is always fun.
Anoop: Ladies Night & Danny: Disco Inferno
To me the 2 are interchangeable; I think they have both needed to go for a while. Most of the country would agree with me on Anoop, but Danny needs to be knocked off that high horse he’s been on all season. I don’t think this song could be another tribute to his late wife, will that mean less votes this week since he can’t make the Heavenward glance at the end?
