There's a talent show happening in my uni in 2 weeks and I was thinking of bringing my acoustic and covering a song, maybe Pumped Up Kicks, but I dunno whether that'll be any good.

Any other suggestions?

We really need an 'only songs to play at talent show' thread. It could be organized by genre and skill level. Hmm...

Definitely cover a song everybody knows. People like familiarity.
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.

Acoustic version of All My Life by K-Ci and JoJo

No joke, it works every time
Ted: [Whispering to Bill] Your stepmom is cute.
Bill: Shut up, Ted.
Ted: Remember when she was a senior and we were freshmen?
Bill: Shut up, Ted!

I second Everlong.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

Do a cover but really re-work it. Keep the tune more or less the same so people can sing along, but change everything else.

Pumped Up Kicks will give you a reasonable response.

Everlong will get you laid.


To illustrate: I have never played Everlong in front of anyone and I'm still a virgin.


Am I the only one who finds Everlong overated? If Everlong gets me laid, Swing Life Away should get me a threesome, surely?

Everlong!

i wish i could sing, then i would get the vagina too
OM NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM

If not everlong, you could do....

10 Years - So Long, Goodbye

10 Years - Fix Me
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cDu3QE77bY

Oasis - Wonderwall
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hzrDeceEKc

But if it was me, I'd work up a cover of this

Oingo Boingo - Skin

Make an acoustic version of No Matter What by Badfinger.
You are now using UG Black.
You are now using UG Classic.


Listening to: Duke Ellington


I'm sick and tired of people calling America the stupidest country in the world. I personally think Europe is the stupidest country.

If you actually cover Ocean the pussy you will receive will no longer be countable by mortal fingers


Especially if you put emotion into it, it'd get more pussy than in an Axe commerical

Second thoughts... Scrap everything everyone has said thus far. You need to play Lola by The Kinks. It's easily acoustic and it's a funny song, plus people can sing along to it even if they don't know it!

Your acoustic tapping skills will get you far more poon tang than Everlong will. Alternatively, for less tapping, this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5QD5n98R_nk

Both (though the first slightly more so) are recommended if you just want to sing a good song, since it was only in the replies that mentions of songs to get you laid came up.

Sir, the contents of my mouth just blew all over my keyboard, desk, and part of my monitor. For the record, it was slightly chewed Keebler cookies and coffee slurry.

What about First Day of My Life by Bright Eyes?


I somehow don't see Everlong being that great. Maybe Hey Ya?

Yes. Or At The Bottom Of Everything

+1 to The Kinks


but not Lola since it's about a transvestite

I know. That's why it'd be funny.
