Everybody Loves Somebody - Dean Martin's theme song, but so much more! This treatment is mostly ballad style, with a section that swings.

We'll Have A Jubilee In My Old Kentucky Home - A little-known song from 1915 by the great Walter Donaldson. Pure barbershop with a happy beat and nostalgic message.

If I Didn't Care - Nice and easy does it with this Ink Spots tune. Ballad approach meets steady beat - think Imagination or My Ideal.

A Band of Brothers - No, it's not a movie theme. But it is VERY moving. This Bill Rashleigh original is a tribute to the troops that protect a nation (any nation). Could work for contest as well as show.
