A common thread that I have noticed on here lately is criticism of song choice ie. "Dad Bands" play tired classic rock, or needs moar new pop. I thought it might be interesting to build the "Perfect" generic setlist as a group.
Imagine that you have your dream band, Tight rhythm section, ripping guitar player, male and female singers that have killer pipes, horns, hip hop MC, DJ, Vienna Boys Choir, whatever you want you got. List 40 of the absolute best songs you can think of to satisfy a crowd of 21-40 year olds with mixed tastes. Some like country, some pop, some hip hop, some rock. These arent necessarily songs your band does, but songs that the "ideal" A+ cover band would do. Again, sky's the limit as far as instrumentation is concerned
After a bunch of you post your lists I will start tabulating results awarding 1 pointper mention to each song. In the end the top 40 vote getters will comprise the "ultimate" cover band setlist.
