Hmm, I will say Seven Nation Army isn't exactly the song to liven up a crowd. If it has to be anything with the White Stripes, it might as well be Little Cream Soda. It's loud, raucous, and catchy.

 

Sorry SoCal, try to ignore it's prescence. :grin:

Never argue with an idiot. They'll bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

I can't get away from them! :eek:

 

I know that when my band played Roundabout (Yes) or anything by Boston, the dance floor was P-A-C-K-E-D (really!).

 

And people did dance to Roundabout! :D

"Secret Agent Man", Johnny Rivers. It didn't matter if the place was already rockin', or nothing was clicking yet, whenever we played this one the party level went up 3 or 4 notches everytime. Of course that was in the 80's but hey....., some of the other sure-things for us were "Shout", "Louis Louis" and most of the Beatles songs we played(strangely absent from the list). "Love Me Two Times" was also a ringer,

Thank you, Smirk! Last bar band I played in (10 or 15 years ago), we made an attempt to not include Cocaine in our set list. Two songs into the second set of our first gig, the crowd was yelling for it. So we launched into an unrehearsed verion of Cocaine. I was a little shocked that it wasn't on the list.

A couple of songs that I have noticed that help liven a dead crowd are:

 

"Friends in Low Places" by Garth Brooks

"Love Shack" by the B-53s

"Bad Bad Leroy Brown" by Jim Croce

 

Michelle

My new baby is a 2002 Collectors by Ovation

 

I think this is a cool song title -- "Can't Remember to Forget"
