    You know, songs that most folks on the forum would say they don't want to play. Where are the folks who LIKE to play Freebird? So, tell us the song you like to play that most people complain about having to play.

    I have to admit, I like playing Mustang Sally. :bag: Of course, I'm the lead singer.

    "True" buy Spandau Ballet, "True Colors", by Cyndi Lauper, "Girl You know it's True" by Milli Vanilli. That's the honest truth.

    I like playing the Freebird intro on the fretless. "Ring My Bell" is kinda fun to play too...(shaking my fist at disco)

  11. Love this song. R-3-5-3 then cut loose with all roots on the tune's name.

    In my defense, I have a 10yr old daughter. That's who made me aware of the tune, at least 20 times a friggin' day.

    I was dead set against playing

    Bad Romance
    Paparazzi
    Just Dance
    Take on Me
    Sweet Child o Mine
    any Katy Perry (we do two, lol)

    when my band plays em (www.missalibi.com), we crunch em up a bit and they become tolerable.

    at least our third set has some zep to ground me.

    "Blister in the Sun" by Violent Femmes.

    Worthless song, but I always end up with a giant grin (and a giant crowd on the dance floor) whenever I sing and play it.

    I thought the bass line was simple, but sweet. That's how I like my slap bass. Of course, there could've been more variations and gimmicks, but hey...

    For me, 'Ironic' by Alanis Morrisette. Really fun to play, you could technically break out in a short bass solo in two places (where the bass takes the lead), but I like to play it safe there. lol
     
  17. I love this thread. I have probably downloaded about 90 percent of the songs that were listed.

    It's kind of like copying lists of songs from "I hate ---- songs" to add to our cover set.

    I don't think there's any song I'm embarrassed by playing wise, it's all good fun. But listening wise, I'd have to say my most embarrasing guilty pleasure would be the "best of bread" album. Give me a break! It was one of the first hand-me-downs I got as a kid! What can I say, I was warped from an early age. Much like that album eventually came to be, now that I think of it...
