What do you sing, when the ipod/zune/radio doesn’t work?

7 Nov

My new novel is set in the post-apocalyptic PNW. For it not to be future fantasy, the poxy-lips needs to happen within the next 5 years or so. The question is, what songs will people sing once their ipods/zunes/radios/etc no longer work? There certainly are musicians around, but the infrastructure to keep the electric guitars/keyboards/etc is gone. So we’re back to human voices, in most cases, with some accompaniment when so lucky as to actually be in the physical presence of a musician.

So what popular songs (say, from the past 30 years) would you remember and sing? Suggestions so far: 
– Baby Got Back, Sir Mixalot
– Rick Astley’s earworm
– Brown Eyed Girl, Rolling Stones
– Blister in the Sun, Violent Femmes

I need more. Please help?
