If I didn't miss the boat on this, I highly recommend something by the mountain goats. Island Garden Song from The Coroner's Gambit is great on uke, (especially if you play it a step lower so there aren't any sharp chords) as is Song for Dennis Brown from The Sunset Tree.

Thanks guys, but I decided to do "Strength in Music" and "Glitter in the Air". I really appreciated all of your suggestions though.

In the meantime, however, could someone please help me find the piano chords to "Glitter in the Air"? All help is, again, much appreciated. :)

Violent Femmes - Hallowed Ground

EDIT: I tried to find the live version from viva wisconsin. couldnt find it. in this version the piano is much more stronger than in the studio recording.


If you wanna do a ukulele song, try this on:

I assembled this team for purposes of a League of Extraordinary Gentlemen thing, but in reading this thread it occurs to me they're all highly bangable. Yeah, even Spider Jerusalem.

Freebird is like the greatest suggestion ever!! Haha

My serious Regina suggestion is Rejazz if your feeling brave and do it without any accompaniment.

Antony And The Johnsons is mainly just piano and voice and you would automatically be the coolest person in your school if you pulled one of those tunes out of the bag!

Edit: Is this post way to late and the thing is already done?

Yeah, the thing's done, but I'm still up for suggestions for next year!

Rejazz isn't a bad choice. Definitely a consideration.  O0

maybe this if it works with a female lead.  (never heard a girl sing it)

or this by nick

or maybe not by Cat Power

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Vj_tR4p184

or maybe check out albums by beth orton, nina nastasia, emiliana torrini, jolie holland, gillian welch, ani difranco and cat power.  all are acoustic friendly and feature great songs by female artists
