I play in an 80s cover band and several of the other band members have expressed a need for some fresh material (I just joined a few months ago so its all kinds fresh for me). The band is drums, bass, electric guitar, 2-acoustic guitars playing rhythm, and four of us sing lead or harmonies (no keyboards! GHASP! We don't obsess about exactly replicating the original tune. The lead player is great about imitating keyboard parts and tones). One of the singers/rhythm gutarists is the "band leader" (he put the band together and handles most of the booking) and he tends to bring in tunes that, while I might think they're cool, are not stuff that I would expect an audience to be thrilled about. For example the band plays "don't tell me you love me" by night ranger. It's kinda rockin and the lead guitarist shreds the solo but I dont know how much an audience wants to hear it. He just suggested "mother" by Danzig which is nostalgic for me, but again I'm not sure if your average bar crowd or festival goer (the two kinds of gigs we play the most of) will respond. We play a bunch of 80s standards like Jenny, Rio, Jessies Girl, I melt with you, down under, take on me, summer of 69, and others, but there are also a bunch of sorta obscure harder rock tunes. I know from other threads that there are a bunch of TBers in 80s band so I figured it be a good place for suggestions. What are the 80s tunes the masses respond to best? We play the central Jersey scene more often than not if that helps define our typical audiences. I ask you to please just give a song title and artist name (lists are fine). Please don't attach videos on the interest of page load times. Thanks for the help y'all!
