Anyone playing current top 40 covers - what songs are you covering?
"Wake Me Up", "Royals", "Slow Down" and "Timber" which is think is #49 now but should be top 40 by next week.
Treasure - Bruno Mars
Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke
Safe and Sound - Capital Cities
...at least the money's decent!
...oh yeah, we're adding Wobble...whatever the heck that is.
I probably couldn't name 10 songs that have been in the top 40 in the last 20 years. Somehow I still get work ... go figure ...
Yeah, it’s getting harder and harder to find current top 40 songs that aren’t heavily bass synth driven.
Let Her Go - Passenger
It Goes Like This - Thomas Rhett
if you can find actual instruments played on the top 40 tracks, you are doing well. Bruno Mars- I'd love to cover some of his stuff, but my current band, well, no way is that happening!!!
I couldn't name one song that was in the current top 40.
Is 2Unlimited 'No Limits' still number 1?
Is anyone else playing current top 40 covers - what songs are you covering?
Don't know how current these are but we have been doing Blurred Lines and Get Lucky. Both kills and zoo's the dance floor with hipsters. Guitarist hate Blurred lines because its basically a percussion and bass track but they don't mind checking out all the hot women on the dance floor during that tune.
I just got a set list for a variety band gig that I'm doing in a couple of weeks that included these. Some are more current than others.
Wagon Wheel(Darius Rucker) - on the country charts
F You (Ce-Lo)
Blurred Lines(robin thicke)
Get Lucky.(daft punk)
I Try(macy gray)
Nice n Slow(Usher)
A lot of common tunes here. We also do Get Lucky. We've recently added Thrift Shop by Macklemore & Ryan.
Bruno Mars- Treasure
Paramore- Still Into You
trying Capital Cities but not sure how that will work out...
