I think the BSO could play a mind-blowing version of "Tutti Frutti" (a la "The House Is A-Rockin'").

Wouldn't it be great if the BSO just went into the studio and hit record and laid down like a hundred tracks in a month (or less)? I remember reading about some of the old jazz greats having marathon sessions like that, where they record some unbelievable amount (by today's standards) of songs, often in one take each. Basically, I just want them to record everything they possibly can! lol!

I love all the suggestions! Not many artists could even imagine taking on such a wide range of diverse music.
My fave would be a cd of Sinatra covers. But not the My Way/Chicago stuff but some of the swinging, horns blaring tracks.
I was thinking of songs like Birth Of The Blues, I've Got You Under My Skin (has a great bridge that the BSO would just tear up!), Ring-A-Ding-Ding, Something's Gotta Give, Five Minutes More, Too Close For Comfort or The Same Old Song And Dance. The BSO treatment of those songs would absolutely rock! Throw in a couple ballads to allow people to catch their breath and you got yourself a great cd!

I am ready to see them play Honky Tonk in person. The only time I have seen or heard it is on the Montreal dvd/cd. I think that it is the best I have ever seen from them. The combination of Brian tearing it up and the band building to a fever pitch is just incredible. I put that one in every few days and get the walls shaking in the house. Anybody else love it like I do?

It is perhaps the best "live" instrumental Brian has ever gotten recorded. It's absolutley fantastic.

It would be great a version of "Sing Sing Sing (with a Swing)" and "StompinŽat The Savoy" both of Benny Goodman and the "Moonlight Serenade" of Glenn Miller as someone here said before. Smile

There are two songs on Mancini's Peter Gunn soundtrack (in addition to the main theme that BSO has already done) that I think would be well suited to BSO...

Sessions at Pete's Pad

and

Fallout!

I agree w/all those who picked the JBT they are always great movies and we know Brian fans would love to see him get additional king air play and fans that would follow his style of playing king

LOVE IT! lol! I like it when Tom plays the bass with his back feet! That is my second favorite Tom and Jerry cartoon - the first being "Texas Tom" where Tom ties the record player to his back and sings "If you're ever down in Texas, look me-UP!" I am such a cartoon geek!

"Is You Is" would be a GREAT BSO song!

I like all of the suggestions. Brian Setzer can do anything and he's awesome at everything he does!

Here's my list:

Christmas:
*The Christmas Song (aka "Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire")
*Rockin Around the Christmas Tree
*O Tannenbaum (O Christmas Tree)
*Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer (played with the banjo)
*Theme from Christmas Vacation (maybe let Julie sing this one)
*Greensleeves

Regular:
*They Say that Falling In Love is Wonderful
*Born to Be Blue
*Night & Day
*Beyond the Sea
*Days of Wine & Roses
*I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire
*Cheek to Cheek (duet with Julie)

Notes:
I'd like to hear an arrangement of the Christmas Song where Brian starts out by himself playing chord melody style, and then gradually members of the band enter, Julie and Leslie at the second A-section, the entire band with mutes at the B-section, then maybe play louder and build up to a solo, followed by dropping off all the instruments, a few at a time on the "Merry Christmas" repeats until left with just Brian remaining playing the last chords chord melody style and then have the orchestra hold an extended chord to finish the song.

I also second the ideas for the Benny Goodman tunes and having the orchestra play a new James Bond theme. However, and I mean no offense to any of her fans, but in terms of Amy Winehouse, I tend to agree with Keith Richards' comments about her.

Those are great suggestions DavyJones! I'm not much of a fan of "grandma," but the more I think about it, it would sound cool with a Setzer twist. The Christmas Song idea is really cool.

I hear so many songs (especially old songs) where I think "I bet Brian Setzer could do a cool version of this song!"

My 6 year old son was just playing Hank C. Burnette's "Spinnin' rock boogie". A Setzer version of that cold be awesome with the horns blaring at 150 m.p.h.......

Having spend some time on you tube this morning i'd also like to see BSO go a bit 'London' and cover Chas and Daves Ain't No Pleasing You.

And also something by Squeeze, maybe Tempted, which is one the Sheryl Crow has covered live. Or there is a Squeeze album track called Messed Around which is already a very rockabilly track.

Also there is a little known Elvis Costtello track called 'Head to Toe' which could go down quite well.

Well, seeing that this topic is on top again, and without really giving it too much thought,
may I suggest "Look At That Cadillac"?

Forgive me if someone has already suggested this.................

That's un real... I was JUST listening to that song (ain't no pleasing you). I wasn't thinking of a Setzer cover thought, but how about Rabbit, or the Sideboard song - or am I just being silly now.

I think a fun song for the Orchestra would be Jambalaya. It's a timeless classic that's been done many times over. They've already got the southern thing going with Hey Santa. santa

A few i've thought recently that would be awesome:
Stardust (like Nat King Cole's arrangement)
Black Orpheus/Manha De Carnaval
Tin Tin Deo - Dizzy Gillespie
Barefootin' - Joe Tex (I heard this over the loudspeakers in a store and actually got out paper to write down lyrics to find later... lol)
or, in the same vein as Wolfie's big night out, Bizet Has his Day - ala Les Brown & his Band of renown...

Isn't 'Barefootin' by Robert Parker?
