A real Canadian Idol
Sarah McLachlan has a lot of great songs that would go well on the show, and keep the Canadian content up. My favorites are Silence (the song she did for Delerium) and Sweet Surrender. How about Avril Lavigne Complicated? I guess these songs are hard to put into the little 1 minute specials they have on the Idol shows.
Perhaps something by Dido (Thank You, or All you Want). And they should have a Bjork night just to throw everyone off.
If they have an oldies show I like to hear someone do "To Sir with Love" by Lulu. Maybe Brandy could do "Dream a little dream of me" by Mama Cass.
I was thinking Kyla or Annie should've sung that.

I'd like to hear someone do a Cowboy Junkies song....
More CanCon the better!
More Cancon would be great but would the Byrd know how to coach them on Cancon? I'll never understand why they brought up a third rate talent like Deborah Byrd from the US to inflict her on CI & Canadians? :phhht
There have been at least 20 Bond movies to date - with at least 20 different styles of music. I think the theme "Bond songs" would be a good one.
That would be a great idea for AI. I don't think it's for CI. I want to see more Canadian-related themes (not named Celine). Joni Mitchell. Leonard Cohen. Sarah McLachlan. Even Alanis. Having one night devoted to Canadian Hits is not enough.
You're right - I agree with you. I do think the Bond songs are all good ones and provide lots of variety - but I do see it more for AI as well.
