American Idol 11 Top 5 – British Theme & the 60’s – Song Suggestions

This week, American Idol‘s Top 5 take on a “British & ’60’s Theme.” Oh man. Well, at least these contestants can still do something current with the ‘British’ selection. They will be signing two songs each. I’m hitting my music collection again to come up with more song suggestions.

With that said, I sat down with my Spotify playlists to crack out some song suggestions for the remaining contestants. It is still sad to me that Elise Testone didn’t make the Top 5 — she could have nailed an Amy Winehouse song. Oh well.

Here’s my list:

Phillip Phillips

British Songs

Paint It, Black – The Rolling Stones
Price Tag – Jessie J
Let Me Entertain You – Robbie Williams

’60s Songs

“Light My Fire” – The Doors

“I’m a Believer” – The Monkees

’60s Songs

“I Put a Spell on You” – by Nina Simone

 

Jessica Sanchez
Valerie – The Zutons (Amy Winehouse covered this)
Bulletproof – La Roux
You Had Me – Joss Stone

’60s Songs

“Papa was a Rolling Stone” – The Temptations

“California Soul” – Marlena Shaw

 

Skylar Laine
Roxanne – The Police
Who’d Have Known – Lily Allen
Thank You – Dido

’60s Songs

“Pinball Wizard” – The Who

“Mr. Tambourine Man” – Bob Dylan

Skylar Laine, stay away from Roxanne.  Juliet made it untouchable, I don't want a comparison war.  Can Skylar please be voted off this week? PLEASE.

I would love for Jessica to do Jessie J either Who you are, or Momma knows best..that being said, I think the more obvious choice would be bleeding love.

Elise said she would've sung Jessie J - Who You Are. That would've been awesome.

 I think if they made it "songs from previous idol contestants" then maybe it would be a little better..that adds the option of daughtry, Katherine mcphee, kellie pickler, Elliott yamin..I just realized all four of them were from the same season, oh the glory days lol..but theres also Jennifer hudson, adam lambert..theres more options :)
