    hey for our next cover i'm thinking about doing a motown/soul tune. something with a lil funk and a lot of groove.

    we have a pretty decent sized "hippy/jam band" type following up here so something that will get a crowd going.

    one of our vocalists can wail in any range so songs with high pitched female lead vocals are ok.

    we have a fiddle player that can take horn lines....

    i was thinking of aretha's version of the weight....

    any ideas??????:help:

    Song we play that the crowd always digs, even though most have never heard it.
