So as many of us know, Alvin and the Chipmunks and Britney and the Chipettes have covered a multitude of songs like "Manic Monday," Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" by Cindi Lauper, "Foot Loose" and "Dangerzone," both by Kenny Loggins, "Beat It," by Michael Jackson, etc (for more see https://alvin.fandom.com/wiki/List_of_The_Chipmunks_and_The_Chipettes_songs I just found that page today!)
Today I came up with some song ideas for the Chipmunks and Chipettes, even playing some of them in my head! They're all cover songs. These are the songs I came up with today:
"Take the Long Way Home" (Supertramp)
"Breakfast in America" (Supertramp)
"Cupid's Chokehold/ Breakfast in America" (Gym Class Heroes and Fallout Boy's Patrick Stump)
"Fairytale Lover" (Untouchable Force Organization, or U.T.F.O. for short)
"Tender Love" (Force MD's)
"Here I Go Again" (Force MD's)
"Would I Lie To You?" (Eurythmics)
"Emotion" (Samantha Sang and the Bee Gees)
And years ago I came up with "Dirty Laundry" by Don Henley.
Some of those you may not have heard of yourselves.
If any of these songs are already covered, never mind. But these were some song ideas I came up with, although I don't like all of them. And there's a song I thought of but I don't know the title or artist. It's a song from the 60s to 80s by male singers. If I ever find out what it is I'll list it later. If I get anymore song ideas I'll list those too.
What songs do you think the Chipmunks and Chipettes should cover that they already haven't? Please include the singer too since some songs have the same titles but different lyrics and meanings.
I have so many. I'm personally interested in more of the rock genre. Like, I always thought that the Chipmunks would be perfect for covering anything from Billy Joel. I'd personally like to see another collaboration with Beatles covers, since the Chipmunks Meet the Beatles only covered the group's first two UK albums, especially since the album itself only covers a a year of the legendary band's work.
I'd also like modern (post-80s) rock songs, particularly in the alternate realm, to be covered by both groups.
I wish they would show some more covers in the 2015 series as well as OG songs. I know they Bad to the Bone in one episode, which showed a reference to the 80's, but still. Since they reference Lady Gaga so much, they should definitely do a cover for her.
