I asked in the suggest me a song thread but I posted on friday and haven't got any answers and I'm kinda running out of time.

Bassically, I've been unbelievable inactive so I now need to find a song to play for our GCSE Music ensemble performance. We have a double to practise in on thursday but I'd like to find a song tonight.

I have:
me - a pretty good guitarist, an alright bassist (i do actually play bass), an ok-ish pianist and a very good violinist

guy 1 - quite a good (classical but will play rock) guitarist (who will be singing)

guy 2 - quite a good guitarist

guy 3 - an ok-ish pianist

I'd prefer a song that is popular, so the other people in my group will agree to it. I'd like my part to be reasonably hard (respective to my skill at whatever instrument you picked for me) and reasonably hard for guy 2. I'd like it to be easy to sing, and for other people in my to know it so it won't be so painful when we play it really badly.

Thanks
