I'll bet you look good on the Dance Floor by the Arctic Monkeys should go down well, along with things like Hey there Delilah, maybe something by Newton Faulkner?

also some songs that dont suck


To impress the general public you have to play something they know, the unfortunate truth of the matter is that most people don't know overly technical songs because they don't make the charts. We're not trying to impress musos here, just some randomers.

If you can play First Circle by Pat Methany, they wont need to recognise it.

They'll be amazed anyway.

If you just want to impress random nonmusicians that walk by learn Don't fear the Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult. It's surprising how many people know the bridge but have no idea what song it is.

"Dee" by Randy Rhodes (from "Blizzard of Ozz" ; Ozzy Osbourne).
Beautiful, short, and very sweet on the ears!

Yeah, some black guy with a yankees cap walks into the ice cream parlor, and I said "We dont serve your kind here," as in, yankee fans, i guess he thought something else and left.

I'm not a Star Trek fan but this seems to convey the meaning well...

(And the facepalm is directed at the tapping comment)
