Songs I'd Like To Hear David Sing

Apr 29, 2011 in

David recently asked us to suggest songs for him to cover, so here is my list (in alphabetical order). I came up with another one last night, but I forgot what it was…

Bubbly - Colbie Caillat (he's sang it before, but I'd love to hear it again)
Grenade - Bruno Mars
Just So You Know - Jesse McCartney
Lucky - Jason Mraz
Note To God - Charice
She Will Be Loved - Maroon 5
True - Ryan Cabrera
What Are Words - Chris Medina
Wordplay - Jason Mraz (it'd be interesting to hear him sing this tongue-twister!)

He sang Sound of Silence a few days ago with Landon Pigg, and it was just lovely… It's a rather old song, and I vaguely remember it from the radio, but I wasn't all that familiar with it.

Hello darkness, my old friend 
I've come to talk with you again

Because a vision softly creeping

Left its seeds while I was sleeping

And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains 
Within the sound of silence
In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone 
'Neath the halo of a street lamp 
I turn my collar to the cold and damp

When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light

That split the night 
And touched the sound of silence
And in the naked light I saw 
Ten thousand people maybe more 
People talking without speaking 
People hearing without listening

People writing songs that voices never shared

No one dared

Disturb the sound of silence
"Fools," said I, "you do not know 
Silence like a cancer grows

Hear my words that I might teach you 
Take my arms that I might reach you" 
But my words like silent raindrops fell

And echoed in the wells of silence
And the people bowed and prayed

To the neon god they made

And the sign flashed out its warning 
In the words that it was forming 
And the sign said
"The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls

And tenement halls

And whispered in the sound of silence

Don't forget to tweet David @ what you'd like to hear him sing.
