Neil night on Idol is finally here.
I really wish it had happened earlier in the season so that I could have heard Michael Johns rock out with Mr. Diamond, but hey, I'll take what I can get.
Here's a recap of my requests:
David Cook: "Cracklin' Rose" or "Brother Love's Travelin' Salvation Show," rocker style
David Archuleta: please, PLEASE don't do one of the soulful ballads like "Hello Again," "I Am, I Said," or "Heartlight." How about "Forever in Blue Jeans"?*
Syesha: "You Don't Bring Me Flowers"
Brooke: "Song Sung Blue"
Jason Castro: "America" or "Shilo." Or "Red, Red Wine."
I had pegged Michael Johns for "Sweet Caroline," but since he's no longer on the show (stooopid voters!), I think that would also be a good choice for David A.
Neil is the summer concert at Fenway Park this year, on August 23. John's and my four-year anniversary is August 14. Tickets to Neil might just be my anniversary present to myself.
