"Moondance".   I never want to have to play that again. 

Beatles. 

Old blues stuff like "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out" , "Need Your Love So Bad" or some one-chord Wolf e.g. "Smokestack Lightnin'".

And "Stand By Me".   "Gloria". 

 

Is it New Year's Eve yet?

oh!  I wondered about that..  Well then those others wont work either  his earlier stuff is well known in the US.

He just went off the rails after his second or third album and never got back on IMHO.

 

I always thought the Lonesome Jubilee  was a great album, I particularly like this song:

Kidblast, Filbert is in the U.K and John Mellancamp/ Cougar has only ever had one hit here, Jack and Diane and that was a long time ago. 

 

This is Pink Houses, pretty cool rhythm (before he went off the rails 🙂  not sure if this song got any playtime over there, but if you could sell it, seems would be fun to play...  and he's playing a dove

I've never heard that one before Billroy. Sadly JM gets absolutely no attention over here, shame because I think he's very talented.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I have done a lot of these songs already but there are some there that I haven't tried so will give them a whirl!

Don't forget big fat orchestral arrangements using acoustic guitars of like, well, Big Country maybe.  Or Alive And Kicking perhaps.  The locals'l know them.  lolz
