I'm taking another voice class in school. We have solo's already starting on Monday. I want something short and easy to start the year off right. I'm very much an Alto. The kinds of voices and songs that are easy for me to sing would be Jewel, Fionna Apple, Dido, etc.

I have some ideas, but the songs I like are all too long. I'm open to any kind of music (from show tunes to what's on the rock stations). Obviously I like trendy stuff more than say opera...but I'm kind of desperate here.

Anybody got a great idea for me?

I'm very behind in pop music, other than Miley Cyrus or what's on Glee, so I can't really help with trendy. But I love "Maybe This Time" from Cabaret for low voices. Good luck on your solo!
