    The return of America Sings

    Here's something fun. If America Sings were to be brough back.. What changes would you make? What songs or eras would you add? What songs would you remove?

    For Example:

    There should be a period for the late 1700s to the early 1800's.

    For the scenes from the south add in some Civil War Tunes like
    Goober Peas
    The Battle Cry of Freedom
    Marching Through Georgia
    The Battle Hymn of The Republic
    Lorena

    For the Old West:
    Streets of Laredo
    Oh Susannah
    Darlin Clementine
    Git Along Little Doggies
    Yellow Rose of Texas

    1890's to 1920's:
    Anything by George M Cohen
    Stars and Stripes Forever
    Over There
    Into the Wild Blue Yonder
    Let's Misbehave

    1930's to 1940's:
    Your Cheatin Heart
    Dixieland Jazz
    Some Disney Music (of course)
    The Entertainer
    Boogy Woogie Bugle Boy
    In The Mood
    Chattanooga Choo Choo
    Anything Goes
    Puttin” On the Ritz

    1950's to present
    Honky Tonk Girl
    I Fall To Pieces
    Rock around the Clock
    Peggy Sue
    La Bamba
    Surfin Safari
    Elvis
    Any Motown
    Great Balls of Fire
    Take Another Little Piece of My Heart Baby
    Purple Haze
    Disco Inferno
    Blondie
    early Ramones music
    Mommas Dont Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys
    Born In The USA
    Any John Cougar Melencamp song
    Beat It
    Madonna
    Van Halen
    Walk This Way (rap version)
    etc.

    Re: The return of America Sings

    Anything but Britney Spears, et al for the 'Modern Era.' No offense, but who wants a senario where the music is dated and forgotten in 10-20 years. Food Rocks, anyone?

    The Gershwins, Cole Porter and Rogers/Hart/Hammerstein would be nice for the early to Mid-20th. I like the idea of the Ramones (Blitzkreig Bop!), as well as the Beatles, Stones and perhaps a little Nirvana (probably too controversial, though).

    Can't do Beatles and Stones. While they did contribue and influence american music, they were british. Nirvana would definatly have to be in there.

    Re: The return of America Sings

    I think it would be interesting to see the characters sing to Gilligans Island, Happy Days and dance to Hawaii 5-0, & Dallas.

    Re: The return of America Sings

    Beatles and Stones in America Sings?

    How about Elvis and Frank Sinatra instead?

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Oh phooey! I thought this thread was going to say that they really are coming back! You big tease!! LOL

    I'd want to hear lots of 80's music. That was a great era!

    Talking Re: The return of America Sings

    If we include Nirvana and the like, would we also need to include a Tipper Gore animatronic taping the performers mouths shut with parental advisory sitckers? Just wondering.... LOL
