Song List

So here’s the list for my 52 songs in 52 weeks project!  I have 13 songs and 12 other artists who I’d like to cover, but have not yet chosen a song.

That only brings me to 25 songs– just about half the number of songs I’ll need. Which means there’s still time for you to weigh in! So if you want me to learn a particular song, comment and let me know!  Or if you see an artist you like and I haven’t decided on a song yet, feel free to give me some ideas– or if there’s an artist or show I’m covering and you think I’m crazy for picking that song, tell me.  And give me another idea!

There is no order for this list, each week I’ll just pick a song I feel up to tackling that week, based on how I feel (and also any encouragement or opinions you post).  Things that come out well will be recorded and posted.

This week’s selection is “Cheek to Cheek” originally sung by Fred Astaire.   More updates to come!

  1. Oh my busy busy! It sounds like you have a good list going already. I wish I could be there to sing with you..hehe. Anyways, have you heard “King of Anything” by Sarah Barielles? It’s pretty amazing and I think you’ll like it.

    • This project is moving slowly and seems like it will be an exercise in learning not to procrastinate! I wish you were here too– maybe whenever we next see each other, we’ll throw in a duet 🙂 And yes! I actually just heard it again in the doctor’s office the other day and realized I missed a lot of songs on this list! I definitely like this song and might add it to my list!
