If You Were Forced ~ What SIX AMERICANA Songs Would Your Band Play???

During the past two months I've procured some pedal effects:
* Line-6 Pod Pro 2.0 Rackmount
* Peavey RockMaster Preamp Rackmount
* BK Butler Tube Works RT-904 Blue Tube Rackmount
* BK Butler Tube Works RT-4001 original DI Direct Input Box
* Boss DD-3 Delay Pedal
* DigiTech HardWire DL-8 Delay/Looper Delay Guitar Effect Pedal

I'M EXCITED!!! Guess one can say: "NAD ~ NEW AMP DAY"
but, only half have arrived = 50% HALF FULL is Good, Right?

THE big deal is I've been thinking about Roots Americana Music with
tons of Reverb, Vibrato, Tape Delay, Slapback, Echo etc etc. Love that music.

With enthusiasm, I've made a list of great Americana Rockabilly Roots songs
and their fantastic covers I want to begin learning with my new pedals/effects.

Following below are my fourteen FAVORITE Roots Americana
Rockabilly Songs that I'll start learning this month.

I ask of you, what songs would you add to the below set of fourteen
songs. What Americana Roots songs do you love to play???

What if a club owner asked you to play six more songs ~ your band was not prepared?
But because you knew songs from your early days, you could instantly play roots music
straight from memory with no problems.

Which six songs would you add to the following set,
if you enjoyed playing Roots Americana Music???

Following are my favorites:

Blasters ~ Marie Marie ~

Blasters ~ Red Rose ~

Gene Vincent & Cliff Gallup & The Blue Caps ~ Woman Love ~

Robert Gordon & Link Wray (check out the Bassist playing lead piano and lead bass at once!!!) ~ Red Hot ~

Gene Vincent & Cliff Gallup ~ You Better Believe

Jeff Beck & Big Town Playboys ~ You Better Believe

Beatles ~ Honey Don't ~

Beatles - Everybody's Tryin To Be My Baby ~

Beatles - Everybody's Tryin To Be My Baby ~

Beatles ~ Slow Down, Kansas City, Honey Don't

Beatles ~ Matchbox ~

Buddy Holly ~ Midnight Shift ~

Buddy Holly ~ Rave On ~

Stray Cats ~ Rock This Town ~

James Burton ~ Mystery Train ~

Jerry Lee Lewis ~ Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On 1 ~

Jerry Lee Lewis ~ Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On 2 ~

From the Movie (check out the Blonde) ~ Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On ~

Aerosmith ~ Train Kept A Rollin' (Gets real Rockabilly at 1:30 in) ~

Aerosmith ~ Train Kept A Rollin' (Gets real Rockabilly at 1:34 in) ~

1968 Yardbirds w/Jimmy Page ~ Train Kept A Rollin' (notice the influences that Aerosmith stole???) ~

Thanks for your responses. Excited to know your favorite AMERICANA Songs.
I do hope you enjoyed the above music. Toppscore
