okay so here is the deal, i have this band together for a talent show at school, and two of us really want to play don't drink the water by dmb, but the others are simply going for the song people want to hear and are adament in playing yellow by coldplay...im tired of arguing this out so if you were in an audience what would you want to hear?

I think stone is either 7 or 14 lbs

Edit I'm gonna go with 14 because it's rather unlikely you're 56 pounds

Whats with all the coldplay bashing here? They have some amazing music out there if you can handle it. The piano in lots of their songs is quite difficult. So dont be judging people because of the music they like. I could bug you coldplay haters about liking metal. But really, what good would that do? It would create a fight, and you would likely be offended. So dont be a jerk to someone else because they have a different opinion.

Now on topic, any of those would be good choices. Remember that music is for you, not for the crowd. If the crowd likes it, well awesome. If they dont, well screw them, cause you did like it.

justin, that was easily the most inspiring, helpful piece of advice anyone has ever given me in regards to my musical pursuits.

If you can't stop arguing about those two songs then try to choose something entirely different. An some people say forget about the audience, but if you really want to win then you have to consider them a little

Heres the deal, its a talent show. You guys need to agree on a completely new song, don't use either of what you picked.

And let the guys know this: if you're going out there to win, you wont. People can tell. Do something everyone really wants to do.

Anyone who says you don't need to care about your audience is one of those guys who stays home most of the time and doesn't seriously gig. The audience is what makes you. As for which song, both are well-known songs however I would do Coldplay just because I like it better. DMB has much better songs than Don't Drink the Water. I can't do any analysis right now, but if the songs were very similiar I would combind both of them. Audiences really like when you segway between one song to another then go back to the first song.
I was once heavily prominent on these forums from 2004-2007, let's see how long I can stay now that I'm back.

If the students vote...and you want to win...you might have to do something like fall out boy or green day. Sorry, but that just might have to be done.

You should do "Strutter" or even more popular "Smells Like Teen Spirit."

Why not? It's a school talent show, it's nothing important, it's just for fun, and playing a song you like will be more fun.
