Default Songs with Cello

On the weekend, my band played a gig. For two songs we were joined by a cellist (Into Temptation by Crowded House and Autumn Leaves by just about everybody).

The audience loved it, the cellist had a blast, and we enjoyed the new sounds we had. So much so that we're looking for other songs that include cello.

We play classic rock type stuff, but we're prepared to go mellower or rockier for the right song. So far I've come up with the following.

Sting Shape of My Heart
Green Day Time of Your Life
Oasis Wonderwall
10,000 Maniacs Because The Night (I know, originally Patti Smith)

Anybody have any other suggestions?

(I've tried googling, and used the search but neither yielded anything useful.)

There is a bunch of synthesized cello in some of The Cars music.

The cello is an awesome sounding instrument and you could use it a lot, even if it wasn't in the original song.

Recently, the band I'm in added The Stone's "Ruby Tuesday" to the repertoire. I'm pretty sure that's cello in there. That song goes over well.

Trouble with this song is that it needs a string quartet, rather than cello added to a band.

I'll grant you that it is a song with a strong cello element, and it is a good song!

Change the voicing to match your instrumentation.

You don't need a string quartet per se.
