SYTYCD Song Wish List: Season 8

Dear So You Think You Can Dance producers: get on this, please. Thanks, Ciara.

1) The Joy Formidable – “Whirring”

It’s easy to imagine a group piece to this, with plenty of leaps and lifts during the chorus.

2) Rodrigo y Gabriela – “Hanuman”

In a perfect world, we’d get a tap-Latin combo number for Iveta and Nick to this song.

3) The Duke Spirit – “The Step and the Walk”

I love Sonya Tayeh, but sometimes her freakyness can be … predictable? This song has plenty of dark corners, while edging into new territory.

4) Lil Kee – “Buss It Wide Open”

My sister and I heard this on the radio awhile back and got all silly about it. Dave Scott could do the same.

5) Mumford & Sons – “The Cave”

Look, I’m as sick of this song as the next guy. Doesn’t mean Travis Wall doesn’t deserve a shot at it. (With Melanie and Marko, naturally.)

6) The Avalanches – “Frontier Psychiatrist”

I’m kind of shocked SYTYCD hasn’t tackled this one yet. Maybe it’s because they were waiting for Chris Scott to join the show.

7) Lykke Li – “Get Some”

Weirdest. Jive. Ever.

8 ) Melissa Ferrick – “Drive”

Look, if Jordan’s going to insist on sexydancing at every opportunity, she might as well do it right.

9) Young the Giant – “My Body”

The more of the show I watch, the more I appreciate choreography that doesn’t tell a linear story. This song is the perfect invitation to dance for the love of dance.

10) James Blake – “Limit To Your Love”

Two words: Mia. Michaels. (She could fit one tiny number in this season, right?)
