Where the Boys Are. I am sure you could sing it better than the girl on AI.
PEACE.

Perhaps you should ask the Broadway or Student Boards.

for something no one will sing, but that is similar to some of Oliver's music, how about a couple of songs from CARNIVAL? your ballad could be "Mira" and your uptempo could be "Yes My Heart". It's true they were written for a woman, but if your voice is unchanged like Colin's and Oliver's are, they'd fit nicely.

hi, I answered this question on the Broadway board, but I just wanted to reply here because, well, I never come to the off-topic board and, well, I guess that's all.
