Since we already have an episode idea thread, I thought I'd start up a related thread with a twist: what song(s) would you like to hear any member(s) of the Psych cast do during a Psych-out and why?

[Yes, I realize that most of these are done on the fly and are considered bloopers, but hey, why not?]

Here are what they've done already:

"Somebody's watching me"
"Come on Eileen"
"Superfreak"
The duet with Maggie and Tim
"My friend" [?] (when James and Dulé are trying to reach that high note)
"I want it that way"

There must be others I'm missing...

Anyway, I have two suggestions - one straightforward, the other one from left field.

1) "Don't you want me" by the Human League - an 80's classic with an extremely catchy refrain. James and Maggie could do this.

2) The "Cutie Honey" theme song - Wha?? Yeah, it's in a foreign language - actually several foreign languages. But it's got some unique melodic hooks - "retro-cosmopolitan" you could say. And it's a bit frenetic, just like Shawn. Maybe it would be too fast to sing, but perhaps James and Dulé can dance to this in the background, with Tim and Maggie looking at them and thinking "what have they been on?" and then participating themselves...

Here's the Korean version by Lee Ayumi:

Here's another song: Superfreak's alter ego - U Can't Touch This.

Now that I've thought about it a little bit more, the material from my initial post should be a running gag in a single show.

First, Shawn would learn that Gus has been listening to this in recent days, while riding in Gus' car. This would suddenly come on. Shawn would probably look puzzled, and then give a strange look to Gus:

S: Gus, what exactly are we listening to?
G: Well, Shawn, it's ... music from Korea/Japan. Thought I'd listen to something, uh, different.
S: It's certainly different - I'd have to think about it more whether it's worth listening to.

[After the song]

S: Huh, that's not bad. [Whispering to Gus] Uh, can you burn a CD for me?

Second, either Lassiter or Henry has to drive Shawn somewhere, and Shawn turns the radio on. The foreign music is being broadcasted. Lassiter/Henry try to reach to either change the station or turn the radio off, but Shawn says:

S: No, no, no, you don't need to do that. This song's cool.

[They listen to it for awhile, then Lassiter/Henry start to look puzzled.]

L or H: You actually like listening to this stuff?
S: Hey, hey, don't hate! You just gotta listen to this stuff with an open mind!
L or H: Yeah, right...

And then, they could dance to it during the Psych-out.

Well, there is the one when Jules and Lassie sing "Leaving on a Jet Plane" but not without some background noise from Shawn and Gus.

I'd quite like to see them do 'Cars' by Gary Numan or something by David Bowie (Songs from the film 'Labyrinth' would be genius)

Here are some songs I thought of:
"The Final Countdown"- Europe (especially in space-themed episode)
"Eye of the Tiger"- no idea
"I Will Survive"- no idea
"Larger than Life"- Backstreet Boys or NSYNC
"Hallelujah"- Jeff Buckley or something like that
Anything from High School Musical or Disney Channel would be funny too.

And yes "Thriller" would be the greatest psychout ever... especially if they got together some of the actors who were arrested in previous episodes and they did it in jumpsuits like in the youtube video.
