    They are songs I wish for them to sing on Rock night but the addition of "classic" means we'll have another very old/retro theme.

    What's wrong with Alternative Rock? That's the genre I like best. I would have gone with that. Adam Lambert singing Tears for Fears and James Durbin singing Muse were really good. David Cook (the most alternative of all AI finalists) sang U2 in the finale but that was chosen by Clive Davis.

    Re: Next Week's Theme

    I love the old, classic rock songs and I'm looking forward to this week's show. I was a bit disappointed this season when there wasn't a rocker in the group, although there are a couple of contestants that have what it takes to do a rock song justice.
    When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "Happy." They told me I didn't understand the assignment. I told them they didn't understand life. - John Lennon

    Maybe Angela can follow Mariah's behind-the-piano advice and sing "Great Balls of Fire.

    I think this week will be difficult for most of them except maybe Candice?

    There was no better era in rock than the mid 60's through the late 70's. So much great music by so many great & lasting bands. Retro or not, it still cooks.

    How about:

    Jim Dandy To The Rescue...probably best know by Black Oak Arkansas but LaVerne Baker did a great version & the original version back in 1957...Candice

    White Rabbit from Jefferson Airplane & the great vocal from Grace Slick for Kree

    Linda Rondstadt almost made a career of covering songs that had previously been big hits for others. One of those songs for her was Buddy Holly's That'll Be The Day, it's just rockin enough just country enough for Janelle

    The Lovin Spoonful had so many great songs but without a doubt the best known is Summer In The City. Maye Angie could make it Hotter Than A Matchead.

    Jumpin Jack Flash a great song written by Mick & Keith, but there was also a really bluesy rockin version done by Leon Russell. Get to it Amber.

    Getting a bit funky & avoiding the obvious choices, War was an incredible band during their heyday, Burnell let's hear Me & Baby Brother.

    Simply because the American public is voting & have been on the outside of the talent portion, how about The Who's Won't Get Fooled Again for Lazanjaya

    Oh! my goodness on most of these choices! Now I am going to have them playing through my head all day today.

    However, they truly skipped some serious rock setters who took the "roll" out of "rock and roll" and left just the "rock" in the last few years of the 60s. That is the time leading up to and into Woodstock - some wild early rock music for the time. For the time and culture, it was 'hair standing on end' for parents and, "Turn down that noise!"
    Take my advice. I am not using it.

    No nicknames rb ... but I do like most of your song choices ... but I wonder if White Rabbit would not be uptempo enough!

    AMEN, razorbacker. AMEN!

    Your list put me in a very Happy Place. Thank you!
    And your nod to Leon Russell? That was excellent.

    Re: Next Week's Theme

    Lazaro couild also put some humor in this ... and sing a song that has stuttering in it.

    Such as

    Bad To The Bone......(B B B B B B Bad!)

    My Generation (g-g-g-generation).

    There are quite a few more but I can't think of them now.
