Ok, I have two co-workers arguing over which song they'd rather hear played by a cover band. Please vote. BTW, I have problems with both songs on many levels, but it is what it is.

As much as I wish there was a neither option.... the Billy Joel song is a good rocking bar band tune, where as the two chords from the Santana tune played over and over and over again is just asking to be butchered.

Billy Joel all the way. I'd be fine never hearing another Santana song again, ever, ever, ever. Ever.

I've heard umpteen versions of the Santana tune, but I've never heard anyone cover the Joel tune.

Which reminds me--time to to revisit "Moving Out" on Spotify. Billy's good stuff still holds up.

you can sing "Milk and Cocoa Puffs....Tequila" to the Santana song, pretty much the only reason I want to hear either. No Offence intended.

+1. I much prefer Santana, but have no desire to see him get butchered.

"Oye Como Va" is not a Santana tune--it was written by Tito Puente years before Santana recorded it. I would rather listen to that than Billy Joel's music any day of the week.

Based on all the cover band song threads here, one would think this is a no-brainer.
Every thread repeatedly says you have to play whatever gets the ladies dancing.
A sexy Latin rhythm in a Santana song is going to get the ladies shaking it a lot more than an old Billy Joel song.

Tough choice because I have seen a few bar bands do Oye Como Va really well and You May Be Right well, not so much.

Agreed. Although a good BJ wins out.
