Thought it would be interesting to hear from bands as to what they feel are their top 3 songs that they play when on stage. Who cares the genre - all music is good music. Just post your top 3. My hope is that this will provide some great ideas for others out there for new songs to add to the mix.

My band Mumbo Jumbo's top 3 (in my opinion) would be:
1) Billie Jean (done like Chris Cornell)
2) Try a little Tenderness (Three Dog Night)
3) Jesus Just Left Chicago (ZZ Top)

How about you?

Dangest post, tricky too.
It's well known that I'm an avid Genesis fan, but to be honest, I couldn't pick a top 3. I like so much material and music, I just couldn't nail 3.

Ok, Ok I'll try, these aren't my top three, just the first that came to mind.

Pleasure Dome >> 'Frankie goes to Hollywood'
Mirror in the Bathroom >> 'The beat'. (Not the band you have over here).
Turn it on Again >> 'Genesis'.

Also I need to be incredibly rich :D

Wow Phil I can't believe you do "Willie the Pimp". In the middle of one our originals "Pincushion Sue" I do an extended lead based on the WtP riff.

The most requested covers the Farleys do are:

"Search and Destroy" - The Stooges
"Helter Skelter" - The Beatles
"Green Haze" - The lyrics of "Green Acres" over "Purple Haze"

I play Noise Pollution in high gain, using a ping pong ball instead of a pick.
One night I forgot my PPB, borrowed a plastic lighter from the crowd, and played with that. :lol:
