Genre:- Glam Rock (Wizard / Sweet / Mud / T-Rex etc.)
Group:- Status Quo
Song :- Bruce Springsteen's 'Dancing In The Dark'
Song :- Simon & Garfunkel's 'Cecelia'
Tune :- 'Doctor Who' Theme (bulked up to 3 minutes, based on the sparse original or the more recent very impressive BBC National Orchestra Of Wales version)

Some Philip Glass music would be interesting.

How about some Baroque? There are some nice arrangements for multiple ukes. It could even be done with comedic interjection.

Status Quo are baroque 'n' roll.

This is my favourite thing on the internet this week.

How about some Carpenters? Who would be the best 'Karen Carpenter'? Would it be Hester, Leisa or George (in 'Wuthering Heights' mode as a swing / crooner 35 year old Frank Sinatra)?

There is a fundamental error of omission in the UOGB performance of The Who's 'Pinball Wizard'. At the end of it in order to remain true to the original Who spirit George should smash his ukulele.
