Songs that are just plain fun!

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Komakino, Sep 21, 2001.


  1. What songs do you play along to because they're just plain fun to play? Even if it's only beating out roots but you do it cos you can sing to it at the same time!

    I love playing Psycho Killer by Talking Heads, and Should I Stay or Should I Go by The Clash.

    I'm also pretty fond of Transmission by Joy Division and that's only

    A----5-55555555555503-3333333333333

    repeated ad nauseum (with a little bit extra occasionally) but it's fun!
     
  2. White Riot by The Clash
    Sell Out by Reel Big Fish
    All my Best friends are metalheads by Less Than Jake
    Sundya Morning by No Doubt
    Rearviewmirror by Pearl Jam
     
  3. Sugar -System of a down
    Wynonas Big Brown Beaver -Primus
    The Love Shack -B-52s
     
  4. Sunday Morning has a cool riff, but I can't place where the rest of it fits in!

    I've never tried White Riot, but I'm gonna have to look out for it.

    Getting back on subject. Fun songs:

    Mista Cool by The Bros. Johnson. Definitely a thumbslingers' delight!!

    I'll Take You There by The Staple Singers. Nice finger funk groove that's easy to play.

    Peace,
