Strangercrombie Strangercrombie Item of My Dreams

Currently at $280, this priceless item allows the winner to request the song of his or her choice to be sung (and recorded) by the one and only Dina Martina.
This year’s Strangercrombie boasts a number of great custom-cover-song packages, starring Visqueen, the Presidents of the United States of America, the Posies, Erin Jorgensen, and more, but it’s the Dina package that haunts my dreams.
If God were kind enough to let me win the Dina pack, I fear that I would be paralyzed by the privilege. There are so many songs I would be ecstatic to hear Dina Martina perform that choosing one is painful.
On one side are the Dina Martina classics, songs she’s covered in her shows over the years that I’d love to have recordings of: “Bette Davis Eyes,” “Year of the Cat,” “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” “In the Ghetto.”
On the other side are all the songs I’d love to hear Dina attack, including but not limited to: “Wind Beneath My Wings” (Dina could make great hay of the lovingly insulting lyrics), Tori Amos’s “Me and a Gun,” and “Loving You Is Easy ‘Cause You’re Beautiful” (just to see what happens when Dina confronts that note). (And, of course, “Smell Yo Dick.”)
