Hi

I was wondering whether you guys could me and my band out a bit... We are a gigging soul/funk/motown/disco cover band but we want to add some songs to our setlist. This is what we've got:

"I wish" - Stevie Wonder
"I want you back" - Jackson 5
"Sex Machine" - James Brown
"Sunday Morning" - Maroon 5
"As" - Stevie Wonder
"Smooth" - Santana
"Regndans" - Danseorkessteret (Danish band)
"Cissy strut" - The Meters
"We are family" - Sister Sledge
"Something to talk about" - Bonnie Raitt
"I feel Good" - James Brown


"Mustang Sally" - Commitments
"Respect" - Aretha Franklin
"Hot Stuff" - Donna Summer
"Lady marmelade" - LaBelle
"Can’t Touch This" - MC Hammer
"Bad girls" - Jamiroquai
"Play that funky" - Wild Cherry
"Sir Duke" - Stevie Wonder
"Express yourself" - Charles Wright
"Son of a Preacherman" - Aretha Franklin
"Hey Jude" - The beatles


"Don’t change horses" - Tower of Power
"Soulman" - Sam & Dave
"I heard it from the grape wine" - Marvin gaye
"Signed sealed delivered" - Stevie Wonder
"I never loved a man" - Aretha Franklin
"All night long" - Lionel Richie
"Kung fu fighting" - Carl Douglas
"Crazy" - Gnarles barkley
"Shame shame shame" - Shirley
"Stop" - Jamelia

We would like some more songs like that but they don't really have to be soul songs, as long as they're crowd pleasers.

Any suggestions?

needs more cowbell.... I'm kidding of course. No what you're looking for is maybe go deeper into some blusey songs, try maybe SWABLR by Cream, or maybe more santana sounding stuff. If you guys could pull off Black Magic Woman, it would be good

Pretty much exactly what I was going to say^. Try Crossroads to, that should go off wonderfully, especially if you do it as your last song.

EDIT: Try Shook Me All Night Long, that is usaully a universal hit

I'd suggest removing "Smooth". Santana has much better material to offer in my opinion.

We've already added superstition and masta' blasta (which is great cause I'm the bassists and these are kick-ass on bass) I think we'll be adding Black magic Woman... Especially because we've got a genuine hammond organ!.. By the way our singer is a girl (Although that doesn't stop her from singing that she's sexmachine) and we've got atleast one (sometimes two) saxophones so anything with catchy sax is great
