Songs your audience SINGS along with you.
I'm looking for a list (or several) of Songs your band does that you have noticed the crowd mouthing if not out right singing along to.
Certainly the list will vary based on the crowd: Pre-College, College, Post-College, Oldies/Retro, Nursing Homes, etc. - so be sure to include some reference to your audience stereotype and ...
Thanks in Advance !!
Wagon Wheel is one that seems to get every crowd I have played before singing out loud, but I live near Roanoke-which is mentioned in the song.
The most successful one for my band on that front was Foo Fighters - Best of You. Followed by Soul Man. These were both at uni gigs.
Bon Jovi , Livin on a Prayer.
No matter where we play the audience sings the chorus with us every time.
In a packed small club they come up to the volume level of the band.
It's pretty damn cool.
Living on a prayer
Fight for your right
We're not gonna take it
I wanna rock
Sweet Caroline (dirty version)
there's more but you get the idea.
Niiiice bass i want one!
We usually play for crowds predominantly made up of college students.
Even though I'm not a big fan of it, when we played Kings of Leon's "Use Somebody" a lot of people got into it. One that's more up my alley that was a big sing along hit was "House of the Rising Sun."
With Or Without You. (U2)
Every Breath You Take. (The Police)
Chasing Cars. (Snow Patrol)

Human. (The Killers)

No real need to mention the usual suspects such as Mustang Sally or I´m Gonna Be 500 Miles etc
No stereotypical audience here, it´s a tourist island. You get what you get and take it from there.

Any of the carpatastic cover band standards get the job done. We do a lot of 90s stuff also which people seem to enjoy.
