Looking for banjo music
But not just any banjo. I'm looking for songs you wouldn't expect using banjo. So no Earl Scruggs. No bluegrass or country for that matter. Any sort of folk is probably out.
- There's the Stereoliza song, "Corporate Logic."
- Feist's 1 2 3 4 has a nice banjo
- Dexy's Midnight Runners' Come On, Eileen.
That's the only three I can think of. Gotta be a lot more--I'd like to make the banjo the new cowbell.
"Come On, Eileen" might be pushing the limits of the folk restrictions, though it was such a huge pop hit I think it makes it. As opposed to Dolly Parton's "Stairway to Heaven." Excellent banjo use for a nonbanjo song. But it is Dolly Parton and that type of arrangement is to be expected. I'm looking for atypical uses, but send in whatever you have and we'll sort it out.
