    I am putting a new band together and we want to do a mix of classic and modern hits. The classic stuff is easy to come up with but I am not overly familiar with dancy modern stuff.

    Here are a few I came up with:

    Billie Jean - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7kBNIL_CPcw
    Bruno Mars' "Locked Out of Heaven" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-fA-gBCkj0
    MOVES LIKE JAGGER - https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=399750810035489&set=vb.134544286572234&type=3&theater
    SINCE YOUVE BEEN GONE - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBdjlz8je94
    One - U2
    Seven Nation Army
    Bad Romance - https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=115611185158466&set=vb.134544286572234&type=3&theater

    Any other ideas for modern 3 piece covers?

    What kind of vocalist do you have?

    It'd be helpful to have an idea of their range and timbre.

    He has a John Mayer vibe, but he's open to most styles.

    I would like my 3 piece band to learn Gold On The Ceiling by The Black Keys

    This thread made me realize that most of the modern stuff I've done which has gone over the best either requires a female singer or a guy who knows Spanish, Portuguese and/or Korean, but definitely do some Sean Paul. I'd start with "Temperature" or "Get Busy".

    LOL, yeah, and it does make his lyrics kinda hard to memorize. But it's still easier than "Gangnam Style" or "Danza Kuduro"!
     
  9. We are a three piece with a singer, we do Super Massive Black Hole by Muse, seems to go over well. We also do Harder to Breath by Maroon 5.

    I think you could do just about anything if you can make up fewer instruments with all three singing.

    We recently added:

    Locked out of Heaven - Bruno Mars
    Lonely Boy - Black Keys
    Gloom and Doom - Stones

    They all keep people dancing and/or singing along.
