Song Quest

Hello friends,

We are at it again. Running in Circles is looking for new songs to add to its repertoire. We are looking for a couple different types of songs:

- sing-along anthems, like Journey's Don't Stop Believing
- dance or danceable rock songs

The way this works best for our band is that each band member picks five songs they would like the band to consider. Everyone listens to those five songs, and the band picks one. Six members, six songs selected. Unless our keyboardist says, "just tell me what to learn," then it's five new songs.

So I have to pick five songs. Here is my short (too short) list from which I will choose my five:
- Lovin' Every Minute of It - Loverboy
- Oh Boy! - Buddy Holly
- Any Way You Want It - Journey
- No Matter What - Badfinger or Def Leppard version
- Somebody's Baby - Jackson Browne
- Heart & Soul - Huey Lewis & the News

Like I said, it's a short list. Got any other ideas?

Did they nix Friends in Low Places las time or did you not ask about that one yet? Everyone sings along with that one I think.

Hey Rick,

Thanks for the recent visits. On the "music thing" I've been getting a kick out of a woman doing "songs from a hat" on YouTube. I did a song response to her "challenge"... which you can find on my "channel."

Here's a quirky thing I did that you might enjoy 4 mins

Scott, come on, and throw me a bone. :-p

Marie, I received the damning "no comment".

GDAEman, thanks for stopping back. Loved the video, especially the line "reduces the amount of SUCK in the world". Awesome! "Songs from a hat" was funny, too.

Dancin Queen - ABBA
Steal My Sunshine - not sure who sings it
One Week - Bare Naked Ladies

Do those songs, and you can take Hang On Sloopy out of the rotation! : )

Rick said...

Polly, I like One Week. Haven't heard of Steal My Sunshine, so I'll have to YouTube it.

Never heard of Abba, though. :-p

I got sick of Sloopy, especially after "Son of BCS Fiasco". I asked for it to be removed from our rotation.

How about something really fun like the Partridge Family's "I Think I Love You" or the Brady Bunch "Time to Change?" Or maybe the Monkees.
