New Feature - Ryan Ruins Requests!

Ladies and gentlemen, I now present...

Ryan Ruins Requests (and Dedications)!!!

Ryan takes your requests... and promptly ruins them!

The rules are as follows:
  1. Any genre is fair game.
  2. Only request songs you anticipate will be ruined.
  3. No Prince songs - I don't want to get sued.
  4. I don't mind pushing myself to the edge of my ability, but we should steer clear of songs that involve so much virtuosity that it would be any fun to even try.
  5. You may request a song for the next week, even if I played your request this week.
  6. You may only request one song per week.
  7. You may may your request in person, on the blog, on my Facebook page, or via email.
  8. Dedications are acceptable. Be prepared to be quoted!
  9. Uh, I think that's it.
Today's episode of Ryan Ruins Requests is a send up of Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream."



  1. AWESOME! Anna wants you to do California Girls. I am thinking Runaway Love by Justin Beiber would be fun. Ella requests Dynamite by Tiao Cruz. Have fun!

  2. Would that be Katy Perry's "California Girls," or The Beach Boys' "California Girls?" (Or DLR's?)

  3. Ruin this one:
    "Can't Fight This Feeling" - REO Speedwagon

  4. Oh, man. That is a great request.

  5. "One Thing Leads to Another" - The Fixx

    BTW, great job on Big Star and Teenage Dream. Loved it!

  6. What another great request!
