personally my favourite are the songs that you do not expect to hear eg. ghostbusters , the final countdown etc. although I do also like the traditional music such as la tarantella etc.

I dont suppose you guys like house of the rising sun?

A good blues! When I started playing guitar around 1971 this was one of the staples (and smoke on the water, stairway to heaven, sunshine of your love, et al). I think it would sound pretty cool on accordian. I like to play others from my rock days - oye como va and black magic women (santana)..

I think we need to publish more of those songs mentioned above on YouTube. Yes the traditional accordion-hits are good to do, but to put your performance over the edge add those guitar hits.
“it Never Rains in Southern California”, “Take it Easy”, Eagles, “Ring of Fire”, Johnny Cash, “Every Step You Take”, Police (but with a 80’s dance beat- why play it slow?), “Sweet Home Alabama”, Lynyrd Skynyrd...do not be afraid to put a more modern dance beat like 80’s/90’s, to those 50’s, 60’s, 70’s tunes! You will become noticed, guaranteed!
Let’s get busy and show the world what us accordionists can do! Not Just Polkas anymore...
