    Does anyone else out there have a song, or songs that they love to play in private? A song, that if you're friends find out, they clwn you. I have 3. "Diggin' Your Scene" by the Blow Monkeys, "Eyewater Fallin'" by Level 42, and "Perfect Way" by Scritti Politti.
  2. i don't care what anyone thinks...i play what i want, when i want...although they do laugh (and i do to) when i play "country song" by blink182
  3. I don't know why, but I love playing
    "My Sharona" by the Knack.
    All I get are dirty looks...
    The shame.... but I can't help myself....

    My oldies band used to do that song. Everyone in the band hated it except for me. I get 4 dirty looks whenever I suggest doing it.:(

    I'm a Believer. Been doing it for a while. I tap the organ parts in the chorus. Funny but now I got it in our live set that way. SOmething to do with it being featured in that Schreck movie.

    "Kiss Me" by Sixpence None the Richer. I don't care what anyone says. Not that anyone has made fun of me for liking it. Especially not my stupid, jerkface bandmates. I can't care what they say, it's not a girly song... not that they said that... I still like it... It's a good album, honest!

    My band covered "My Heart Will Go On" from Titanic a while ago. The guitarist did the little recorder thing, but I learned it too so I play that once in awhile. I played it in an open solo in jazz band once, everyone stopped playing and stared and laughed at me.

    "Daddy, Brother, Lover, Little Boy" by Mr Big.... I even rigged up a drill with picks!
  11. Ahhh what a cool thread. I am in a death metal band with very hardcore people. But my Dad is in a classic rock cover band and i go through his charts learning songs.

    So during breaks or between songs, I start with My Sharona, or a bit of AC/DC or Creedence. It got weird looks, but then my guitarist opened up and said he liked that stuff too so we do heavy metal versions for a laugh.

    Although the drummer hates it and always says "Damo... i have sticks remember and i CAN and WILL throw them" lol... although he did request AC/DC *eyes him off warily......*

    'bust a move' by young mc. we played this for the battle of the bands back in high school and won. heheh.

    related but off the subject - we covered the mighty mighty bosstones cover of the bob marley tune 'simmer down' for our project graduation, and bought a keg with the prize money we won. this happened because i finally managed to sink a three point (basketball) shot after 200 trillion tries. sorry, random story...
