Mmm cover huh!?! I wonder if we could develop originals based on covers but that's likely not the intent of this fight. The poor Romans were so under represented in Jesus Christ Something or Other, but I'm willing to play by the rules. I think my best Bocelli impression might have to be dusted off and brought back to life for this. :)
And in the spirit of JCS it has to be modern of course. Ideas ideas.... Let the games begin.

This might be a good excuse for me to record Frank Mills from Hair.

Great tune, lots of luck. Covers a lot of range vocally. Judas has the best songs on that album, mostly.

I would like to claim, if no-one else has objections, to two, either as individual songs, or a 'mega' mix.

'Somewhere' from West Side Story & 'Tomorrow Belongs to Me' from Cabaret.

Thanks!

I'll see what I can do with "Can We Start Again Please?" from JCS (not on the original album, written and added for the movie).

I'm not seeing any due dates yet, are we waiting until we see who's in or did I miss something?

So awesome. I wish I'd seen this earlier, I totally would have rocked out on "What's the Buzz."

I've started building a new house today so I won't be finished (my cover) by the end of July so I'll extend the deadline until 11th August hopefully thats enough time for everyone to get (started and) finished.
