Idol Alum Songs

Day 06 → Whatever tickles your fancy

Well, okay then. I guess I'll talk about one of the things I know best: American Idol. Ha. I would post a deep blog on my future and the lessons I learned in 2009 or something, but it's 8:30 in the morning. I'm not ready for that.

EW Posted an article "29 Great Songs from Idol Grads". I was surprised yet excited that they included some overlooked contestants, like Melinda and Brooke. I thought for sure it would be all Kelly, Carrie, Daughtry, The David's. Anyways, I looked through my music collection decided to post something similiar. So here are MY 29 favorite songs from Idol alum. This was very hard to do, because I have a lot of Idol albums.

Okay, you get MAJOR kudos for being able to narrow the songs down to your top 29!! I honestly don't think I could EVER do it. Love, love, love your choices :-)

On a semi-related note -- have you heard the Kelly pre-show audio? I was thinking of you when I heard some of the songs and lyrics!!

Cool list. You could post it in the thread on the site about the EW list and see if that generates more comments. Just a thought.

Hmm, I'm curious about something. Are there any post idol songs that would make this list that haven't been released? I'm thinking of stuff Gina and Chikezie have done in particular. Or duets that idols have done together. Just wondering how that would change your list. :-)

Shari- Thank you!!! Okay...the Kelly songs. I haven't listened to them yet. I can't decide if I should... because Kelly's team was SO imperative that NO ONE records because those were special pre show songs and blah blah...but I will probably break and listen, lol.

Sam- There's a whole lot more than 357, that's just the albums I personally have. Maybe is an amazing song :)

Des- Good idea! and yes, Chikezie's songs would most def make the list, as would Gina. I can't think of any other Idols I usually listen to that haven't been released...well, maybe some of Kelly's unreleased stuff.

I was the same way! I managed to wait a few days after they showed up online, but then so many people were raving about them that I just couldn't resist. I know it'll never happen, but I wish she'd release them on cd so I could buy it and support the songs that way!
