I would do a cover of that "Sister Suffragette" song in Mary Poppins.

I fucking LOVE that song, seriously!

Cast off the shackles of yesterday!
Shoulder to shoulder into the fray!
Our daughters' daughters will adore us
And they'll sing in grateful chorus
"Well done, Sister Suffragette!"

Anything that would require a large amount of showing off on my part, though if ever put in the situation I'd probably just play whatever it is that I'm using as a warm up at the time.

...i was thinking about this one yesterday....
"Pour Unfortunate Souls" From the Little Mermaid.
Oddly enough, it was stuck in my head all day yesterday
even though i haven't watched the Little Mermaid in a few years.

I definitely need to cover "Big Ass Rock" from The Full Monty at some point in my career.

Same goes with "Good Morning, Baltimore" from Hairspray.

Even though they're completely on the opposite sides of the musical spectrum.

I totally think that "Robot" from the ru version of t.A.T.u.'s first album would be totally heartbreaking on the piano.

So, If I had the means:

Robot - t.A.T.u.
Dear Salem Laundry Company - Judith Shimer
Guitar Hero - Amanda Palmer
Straight - Amanda Palmer
Boyfriend in a Coma - Amanda Palmer
Mary's Surgeon - Amanda Palmer
Ghost of Corporate Future - Regina Spektor
Pavlov's Daughter - Regina Spektor
Acid Indigestion Pt. II - Pretty Balanced
Perfect Timing - Pretty Balanced

I think Straight would be totally rad if it was played like the chill version of PB's Permanent Guest.

i love covering dolls/amanda songs on guitar. i believe in airplanes is furious but hilarious to play!
lonseome organist makes my fingers tired though.
The Gardener makes me really happy when I play it. Also, Astronaut on ukelele (and kick drum) is a killer =]

elsewhere, i got some great acoustic (pisstake) versions of Toxic by Britney Spears and Stupid Girls by Pink.

If I was in a band, I'd like to open our sets with the Buffy theme tune. As it is, I play Love's Not A Competion by Kaiser Chiefs a whole lot. I'd love to be able to play Love Will Tear Us Apart, but I suck on guitar, so no.
