      Our female singer does:

      Eagles - Take It Easy - Heart Ache Tonight

      Fleetwood Mac - Landslide

      Janis - Want Somebody To Love

      Lynard Skynard - Sweet Home Alabama


      I wouldn't limit to just female songs - It's pretty cool when she does songs known by male singers and covers them too. I guess it depends on what your looking for.

        Personally.....I wouldn't limit myself to just classic rock, or songs from woman singers only. There is a couple local bands w/ woman singers & they're doing some Zepplin, Journey, GnR, etc. for bands w/ male singers as well as popular country, rock, top40, etc., etc., from woman singers & they're all incredibly popular.

              Don't limit a good female vocal to just the gurl songs. If shes comfortable enough to tacke the guy hits she should go for it. Many, many songs are not gender specific, songs about love, heartbreak, lust, what ever. Its the same story just being told by a woman and not a man. SOmetimes that shift of gender, puts a great new twist on a classic song.
              I always wanted our vocalist to do "What is and should never be" (zep) Starting off all coy and quiet like, then crashing into the chourus full steam ahead....

              Have fun

                Hell yes. A couple that I used to back a female on were:

                Hot Legs
                You Shook Me (All Night Long)

                I was never a particular fan of them, but they NEVER tanked, and she kicked major butt on 'em.

                  Avoid Black Velvet
                  Thomas Jefferson said... "The day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the Supreme Being as His father, in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter." hmmm...

                        Rock or not, we did it last weekend and it went over fantastic. I'm always on the lookout for 12 string tunes to play.

                        Joan Jett?
                        Her cover of "Everyday People" is fun to play.

                        A suggestion (just my opinion): don't have your vocalist do vocal gymnastics on every song. It creates aural overload for the audience. Sometimes the softer bits are more emotive (and tougher to pull off well) than belting. Try Dog & Butterfly instead of Magic Man. Then back to a rocking dance tune.

                            You're No Good - Linda Rondstat is a good cover I've done in the past. Like the Way I do, by Mellissa Etheridge is killer. White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane works sometimes too.

                            Just find whatever songs she sings well and do them guy vocal or girl....
