Should I Stay Or Should I Go - The Clash
Suffragette City - Bowie
Dust My Broom - Elmore James
Couldn't Stand the Weather - Stevie Ray (ok, I just really liked playing this one :)
Right up my alley here Polly. There's a set list that I'd find a hell of a lot of fun to play...and even more fun standing at the bar getting hammered to.
I just wish I'd thought of Pump It Up whenever we sat around scratching our heads for a new up tempo number!
