American Idol Dreams: If next week is 80's Week...

If next week follows the theme and is Songs of the 80's, here are some songs I think they should sing (and the Erasure song I wish they would sing, but never ever will - this is limited because Erasure only released 4 of their 13 studio albums in the 80's. . . I found a bunch of songs I wanted to include off of 1991's Chorus, which I just adore, but alas, it was released too recently.)

Please feel free to add your thoughts.

Possible 80's Song /Erasure Song

Michael Johns - Let's Dance : David Bowie/ 2,000 Miles

Jason Castro - This is the Time: Billy Joel/ Blue Savannah

Luke Menard - Take on Me: Aha/ Who Needs Love Like That

Danny Noriega - I Ran: Flock of Seagulls/ Hideaway

David Hernandez -Sister Christian: Night Ranger/ A Little Respect

Chikezie - Sexual Healing: Marvin Gaye /Oh L'Amour

David Cook - Hurts so Good: John Cougar /Ship of Fools

David A.- Every Breath Your Take: Police/ If I Could

And the girls.....

Carly Smithson - Love is a Battlefield: Pat Benetar/ Chains of Love

Brooke White - Circle in the Sand: Belinda Carlisle/ Sometimes

Syesha Mercado - Listen to Your Heart: Roxette/ Yahoo!

Ramiele Malubay -Harden My Heart: Quarterflash/ Star

Kristy Lee Cook - Nine to Five: Dolly Parton/ Piano S

Amanda Overmeyer - I Love Rock & Roll: Joan Jett/ Heavenly Action

Kady - Lost in Your Eyes: Debbie Gibson/ Phantom Bride

Asia'h Epperson - Fast Car: Tracy Chapman/ Drama!

And for the group sing, I want to see The Safety Dance.

The 80's just couldn't be complete without Men Without Hats.

I had no idea Fast Car was from the 80's.....I had to google it. I love it, and heard it for the first time around 1998, so I thought that was when it came out. Learn something new everyday....
