Hi guys,

Whenever I pick my guitar to play at parties I "disapoint" people because I only know old songs they ignore (beatles, stones etc etc). For 18-25 people, what recent songs do you recommend (any style, any artist) to play? They must be entertaining/groovy, recent (less than 5 years) and widely known...

Pah! pah! pah! Pokerface! Pah! pah! Pokerface!!

Free your mind and your ass will follow
The kingdom of heaven is within
Open up your funky mind and you can fly

As the guy above me said, almost everybody likes Blink 182, and you should also try some McFLY, if you look right, they have some pretty nice solos to learn
Hotel Yorba by White Stripes - It's pretty popular and is a good sing along, I always play it when i'm at festivals. It's only 3 chords as well - G, C, D.

Classical Gas is a good party piece. Most people haven't heard OF it, by name anyway, but they probably have heard it played at some point.
