I'm a solo singer/songwriter and I'm wanting to get a few gigs playing cover songs at various low-key kind of places. I have a rather diverse style, but I mainly do folk-rock stuff. I'm looking for ideas and advice on some good songs to learn and play - just me and an acoustic guitar. Any ideas?
Great Big Sea's "Sea of No Cares" done in a slow-ballad style. The have some awesome numbers and I see you doing it nicely.
Also try Oysterband's "By Northern Light". That would suit your style perfectly.
Lastly, there's a song called "Living Proof" by the Paperboys. Very good pop-folk song, would be nice to hear your version.
O, and one more funny tune, "Straight to Hell" by Great Big Sea. Lyrics to chorus as follows:
Love me now while we're alive
It's the best thing we can do
We'll have no time upon cloud 9
So heaven on earth will have to do
I can sing like a bird
And dance like a demon
And I do it all so well
'Cause I made a deal with the devil, and when I die
I'm going straight to hell!
I'm going straight to hell!!!
Thanks TK. I'll be checking these out. Thanks for listening to my stuff
Ha ha, good lyrics!
