  • Slow Songs: I need some for an upcoming country club gig.

    The guys I play with aren't used to playing slow songs, at all! We're getting ready to play a local country club and I know that we need several slow songs. What are some good ones that are maybe NOT so overplayed, in other words NOT "Ain't No Sunshine" or "Knocking on Heaven's Door" or "Wonderful Tonite!"



    What are some newer cooler slow dance songs?



    Thanks!

      Since you're looking for new stuff this one has been really big all year, and could end up being the top male ballad for 2012:

      It also happens to be really good.

              "Suspicious Minds" is a song written by American songwriter Mark James. After James' recording failed commercially, the song was handed to Elvis Presley by producer Chips Moman, becoming a number one song in 1969, and one of the most notable hits of Presley's career. "Suspicious Minds" was widely regarded as the single that returned Presley's career success, following '68 Comeback Special. It was his seventeenth and last number-one single in the United States. Rolling Stone later ranked it #91 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

                  About the only slow song we play is Motley Crue's Home Sweet Home. That usually works.



                  I wouldn't call Suspicious Minds a slow song.

                    If you're looking for recognizable "newer" material, you could always draw on what I think of as the Grey's Anatomy soundtrack......stuff like Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars, Anna Nalick - Breathe, The Fray - How To Save A Life. Stuff like that.



                    I don't know if I'd exactly call it "slow songs"....but they're laid back, and very much appeal to the ladies. I think they'd work.

                      Yeah, the old classics would definitely work. What you have at a country club gig is a wide age group of people who obviously golf but don't dance much. Songs with beats that even an amateur can feel would work best.

                        Fooled Around and Fell In Love - Elvin Bishop

                        To Love Somebody - Bee Gees

                        Still Got the Blues for You - Gary Moore

                        Only the Lonely - The Motels

                        Me and Mrs Jones - Billy Paul

                        Eyes of Blue - Paul Carrack

                        Hero - Enrique Inglesius

                        Is This Love - Whitesnake

                        Let's Get It On - Marvin Gaye

                        Love Look What You've Done To Me - Boz Skaggs

                        We typically do one set ... so we constantly rotate tunes thru the "slow tune" slot.

                            At first I thought you were going to play at a Country club, I couldn't figure out what the heck all these posts were about, but was going to suggest, "Crazy" as sung by Patsy Cline... an oldie but a goodie!



                            Now that I see you are playing a country club, ah, hell, if it's full of old people you can STILL play "Crazy", LOL.
