What sort of music do you like to hang out and sing?

We’re doing more and more ‘music hangouts’ hereabouts, and I’m looking for suggestions on what sorts of music we should be adding to our ‘songbook’. The standard fare are entries from Rise up Singing, but I’m looking to widen out the offerings.
We’ve added things like Allman Brothers – “Melissa” and the like, plus some Chicago, a lot of CSN&Y, Indigo Girls, things of that nature. If you were having a bunch of folks over, and wanted to play music together, with a bent toward classic rock and folk tunes, what would you add to the list?
I’ve added a list of the tabs I’ve already collected behind the cut.
The best type of songs are ones that play well on acoustic guitar, bass, and a hand drum. Good choral vocals are a win. Occasionally we have more involved musicians playing, so woodwinds or other instruments are often added, but it’s generally a few 6 and 12 string guitars, my bass, and the singers.

  1. Select playlist “Folk”
    Select Random
    Gordon Lightfoot – Softly (there are about two dozen GL songs that are worth learning and knowing)
    Puff the Magic Dragon – PP&M (it’s in Rise Up Singing)
    Devils and Dust – Bruce Springsteen (depressing; some of The Boss may be worth putting in)
    Can’t Find My Way Home – Bonnie Raitt (her 10 biggest hits are definitely worth adding)
    One Small Star – Eric Bogle (his big two hits are in RUS)
    Stairs – Arlo Guthrie (worth looking at his first and latest (Mystic Journey) albums, where IMHO the best songs are)
    Suzanne – Dan Bern
    Angel From Montgomery – John Prine (again I think most of his big hits are in RUS)
    Gulf War Song – Moxy Früvous (There’s definitely some Früv that could be added)
    Killer Robots from Venus – Arrogant Worms (I think there are some Worms songs in the songbook, but it could stand new additions)
