One idea I had....

There are a lot of pop songs titled "Magic".

For instance, "Magic" by the Cars, "Magic" by Pilot, etc. Or even just with the word in their title ("Strange Magic", "Do You Believe In Magic?"), etc.

I'd like to see at least one of these pieces redone in magic temperament. Not just in an edo that allows magic, but actually in magic temperament, meaning chord progressions would more often modulate by major thirds than by fifths. This would necessitate a lot of changes in the chords and melody, but I'm sure there'd be a way to do this while maintaining the overall feel of the original piece.

Actually, "Strange Magic" would be a great one to do. The cover could be called "StrangeR Magic".

There might be some copyright issues with recording covers, though; although I'm not sure how much of a problem that'd be if you weren't making money off the cover. (Alternatively, it might be possible to consider it a parody rather than a cover, and parodies are protected under fair use IIRC). Legal issues are not my strong suit, unfortunately.
