My band is preparing for our second gig, and this is a big deal for us. It is a paying gig, with the opportunity to be added to the permanent rotation if the club likes us. We need a few more songs to complete four sets, and they need to be songs people can dance to (as well as being easy to learn.)
I would appreciate your input. We recently added "Jenny, Jenny 867-5309" and "ROCK In The USA."

The Breakup Song (Greg Kihn)

Walk Like an Egyptian (The Bangles)

I Love Rock and Roll (Joan Jett)

One Way or Another (Blondie)

Anything by Bob Marley

Anything by Jimmy Buffet

These tunes always filled the dance floor and kept people drinkin'. And you can be a dude and sing the chick tunes if you *sell* the tune.

As usual, Peegoo has some great suggestions there!

But, if you're going to do "One Way or Another", it helps to have a really cute blonde singer! ;)

Honkey tonk women and Abracadabra always fills the dance floor. Also, anything by Chuck Berry or just plain old Rock n Roll tunes gets people off their chairs and dancing.

Thanks, tahitijack!

I just convinced my band mates to do Mustang Sally. It was a hard sell, but I reminded them the key to getting asked to play again hinges on bringing people in and then getting them to dance.
