So my band's singer just recently quit. (Thank god he sucked) and we got a band new singer. We've got a gig in two weeks and need 2-3 easy songs that feature a woman singer. When I say easy, I mean easy so we can get down and mess around on stage quickly.

Another thing is that the singer used to be my ex and I still have feelings for her. I don't want to get in anything more than a friend relationship with her, but do you think this could eventually mess up the band?

Honestly, it doesn't matter if the song features a woman or not. A girl can sing a song written for a man and vice/versa. Obviously though, this depends on the lyrics. Keys can always be changed etc.

So your best bet would probably be to pick a song that could be sung by either sex, because you'll have a lot more to choose from. Of course for some reason at this moment I can't actually think of any. I'll edit this when I do...

Lots of songs work with a female singer whether or not they originally had one. Try House of the Rising Sun (The original folk song had a female singer), Why Do You Love Me by Garbage, Somebody to Love by Jefferson Airplane, Zombie by The Cranberries, or Nobody Does It Better by Shirley Bassey. Pretty much any of them are easy songs to learn, and have female vocalists, and will all be popular for your average gig-goer.

What sort of music do you play? What sort of singing range does she have? Do you have one, two, or more guitarists? I might come up with some more based on those.

A perfect circle was intended to have a female singer, so try some of those songs. Sorry I really can't think of any off the top of my head.

Another thing is that the singer used to be my ex and I still have feelings for her. I don't want to get in anything more than a friend relationship with her, but do you think this could eventually mess up the band?

This is all on you, don't make it awkward for her. Hopefully you wanted her in your band because she can sing and not because of your feelings for her
