Ever take an idea too far? Well, that's the motivation for this post. Country singer Lee Greenwood, best known for "God Bless the USA" during his long career, will perform at this week's inauguration festivities. While I'm sure he'll sing all of his normal hits, I thought it would be fun for him to mix things up and play a bunch of covers.
I proposed several songs and asked for more suggestions on my Facebook page. Please note that these songs are probably not very popular among Greenwood's audience, and it's almost certain that Greenwood has never sang these songs. (That's what makes this even more fun!) Please note that I don't think there are any bad words in these videos, but you still may not want to watch them at work. Enjoy!
Baby Got Back by Sir Mix-a-Lot
Pour Some Sugar On Me by Def Leppard
Not Ready To Make Nice by Dixie Chicks
Break Free by Ariana Grande
Why perform one Ariana Grande song, when you can perform two!
Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande
Raising Hell by Run-DMC
Why perform one Run DMC song when you can perform two?
It's Tricky by Run DMC
OPP by Naughty By Nature
Raining Blood by Slayer
Hips Don't Lie by Shakira featuring Wyclef Jean (Greenwood could probably perform both parts.)
I really, really, really hope Greenwood performs some of these songs during the inauguration concert. Even just one of these would be fantastic. Feel free to include your own set list suggestions in the comments section below.
