Anyone for "Miserlou" by Dick Dale? That could be pretty sweet with the big band. That could actually be a big hit, I think. "Nitro" would be cool, too, though probably better with a trio.

There are already some cool versions of this song with horns:

PostSubject: Gonna ball   Tue Feb 12, 2008 6:14 pm

Just a little note about roots. i'd love to hear Brian play some of the songs that inspired him in their original format. Think Wild Saxophone (That mellow Saxophone) Fishnet Stockin's ( bop-Bop -a doo bop) and Gonna ball - Let's have A ball by the WHEELs, seriously good doo wop whci Brian was born into.

but where did he get Too Hip and Something's Wrong from?

Anybody up for a straight blues album? Brian could do all his own versions of classic blues tunes or mix it up with some other players like Buddy Guy, B.B. King, etc.

Hey, and how about the BSO with strings?! A classy romantic album in the same vein as Sinatra or Charlie Parker's strings album (or any of the other greats).

I would love to hear the BSO do a version of "One Mint Julip". Ray Charles did a kind of a cha-cha intrumental version once that really swings.

I think it would be cool if he reinvented "One Mint Julep" with guitar instead of organ. cat

"Secret Agent Man" - Johnny Rivers, as well as more Bobby Darin covers. I can also "hear" Brian covering some Dean Martin ("Ain't That a Kick in the Head" comes to mind) and some more Sinatra stuff, which incidentally is what Bobby Darin did - revitalized Sinatra's stuff when Rock & Roll was king of the airwaves. Ooh, ooh, light bulb: "Perry Mason Theme"....THAT would be freakin' sweet.

Would love to hear the BSO doing 'Take five' or 'Unsqaure dance' by Dave Brubeck, it would be great to hear the orchestra pared down to a quartet or a quintet for a few tunes

Nice to met you. Iīve read you several times in our sites in Spain.
I usually go every year to Calafell High Rockabilly and Calella sometimes (cuando me deja mi mujer: jejeje).
I hope we can met eachother this summer in a Stray Cats show and talk for a while...ok?

I'd love to see a full on Louis Prima tribute album.

Also, I'd love for him to record Got to Get You Into My Life by the Beatles. He used to perform it live and it kicks all form of @$$.

I'll add Bue Rhondo Ala Turk to that group, but Take Five first choice definitely.

Now that they've done a classical album, I'd like to see them do a reworking of Big Band Classics from the likes of benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Woody Herman, Artie Shaw, Count Basie, etc.

Or how about a Rat Pack tribute?

Or we could go the opposite direction and do big band treatments of modern metal classics, Metallica, AC/DC, Judas Priest, etc.

The next time the Orchestra tours (or next non-Christmas tour) I'd like to see him bring along Tomoyasu Hotei as the opening act. I know Brian's played a few times with Hotei in Japan. I think it would be cool to intruduce him to US audiences. The man is an amazing talent that deserves exposure outside Japan.

PostSubject: Bond, baby, James bond   Fri Feb 15, 2008 1:15 am

I think I would have a lot of supporters here when I say that I have been dying to have the BSO do the next James Bond opening title song for the new movie.

I think a whole album of classic Bond songs would be amazing. Live and let die, Thunderball, Living Daylights, Goldfinger, A View to a Kill, Nobody Does it Better to name a few.

Cool idea with the Bond songs up to "The Spy Who Loved Me", but after that even Brian would struggle with the material. Those Aha, Duran Duran and Madonna Bond songs are beyond saving.

I think the BSO could SMOKE Guns n Roses version of Live and Let Die.

Rumors continue to fly around about Amy Winehouse possibly doing a Bond theme in the future (if she survives...) But what about Winehouse, or even the great Shirley Bassey backed by the BSO? Bassey's voice is probably the one that could hang with the power of the BSO, but Winehouse might expand the fan base. Shoot, there's a couple of pretty good girl singers right there in the BSO!
