Wanted - catchy and/or jolly (and not too tricksy!) songs to add to my summer busking book, please ...

TGIF by Katy Perry, for instance transposed to C. 4 chords, although squeezing the lyrics in may take a little practice.

Detroit City by Texas.

Sky Full of Stars by Coldplay - if you have a good vocal range.

Will that do for a start?

Happy - if you have someone to sing it with you. The original is by Pharrell Williams but my fave is by Walk Off The Earth - check out their YouTube videos for inspiration.

Royals by Lorde.

We expect a full report afterwards.

I am spending the day listening to Annie Nightingale's compilation triple album - 'Masterpiece'. Lots of summery things on it including Lovin' Spoonful, 'Summer in the City'.

Are you sporting a instrument, Frankly, or are you a cappella?
Posted by Frankly My Dear (# 18072) on :
Acoustic guitar -- usually a colleague with me also doing a few lead licks on another acoustic.
Posted by Kelly Alves (# 2522) on :
Joe Jackson -- " Different for Girls"

Patty Smith-- " Because the Night"

Lynard Skynard--"Gimmie Three Steps"

Anything that catches your fancy by Bruce Springsteen.

And don't be afraid to dredge up the carcassas of the Seventies' Folk Plague-- people are getting nostalgic for it. Crosby Stills, Nash and/ or Young, Jackson Browne, james Taylor, Rikki Lee Jones...
