Please help out with suggestions (I am in the wrong place for advice though)

#1
Okay, so basically, our singer moved without telling us, and he litterally just left. So our backup singer is now the lead singer, and we have a show to play in about a month. Basically what I need are some suggesions of songs that have vocals that are quite *easy* to sing. When I say easy, I mean that it isnt too fast, and that notes are not that hard to hit with your voice. His voice is pretty low, and he CANNOT sing high, like Axl Rose, for his life haha, so no Guns&Roses. But PLEASE people of the pit. Please give me some suggestions on songs that are easy on vocals

If he's already a singer, shouldn't he already have an idea of songs that he can sing?

EDIT: If you're really in a bad spot, borrow a singer from another band. Call it, "<Your band name here>, featuring <Borrowed singer's name>". That should work for at least one show.

No, but it is a really important show, and we need all the members that are actualyl going to always be here.

What kind of music do you guys play? You can sing pretty much any song you want in his octave. The Masterplan by Oasis is absolutely amazing and the vocals aren't very difficult. But you may need to get a violinist. And a third guitarist. And a pianist. And a dude that can play the trumpet...

Or you could sing You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC

i assume by "backup" singer he doesn't really do much other than add to the singer's bit in some places.

but that idea is good, find a temporary replacement if possible


My mind is going. I can feel it.

my dad is in a band that has a singer with similar vocal style...they do songs by the goo goo dolls, and stuff like that (the typical 90's scene radio rock)

Do Yellow Ledbetter by Pearl Jam, pretty much all he has to do is mumble and make noises.

oh, so you play nirvana! molly's lips is super easy



Molly's Lips is NOT Nirvana.

Kurt Cobain raped that song, and I hope he is burning in hell for it.

anything by Bob Dylan, Dire Straits or Lou Reed requires very little vocal skill, just enthusiasm
