Would be easy if it were kids or older people, but nobody in my generation has any cohesiveness in music taste. I'm gonna try to keep myself from ranting as best I can, but it seems like the most popular music consists of rap songs you can dance to and forget about in 2 months. And that's what makes this so hard. I want a song that is sing-a-long-able, something that people either know, or is easy enough for people to catch right off the bat but not feel like it's something that is condescendingly stupid.
the idea came to me from gabby-la-la

^she plays a lot of uke and sitar too
My only real idea so far is MIA's Paper Planes

and for the sound effects in the chorus have people stomp and clap, should be easy enough right?

Yeah, there are certain songs that seem to cross all generations and tastes.

Most people know and love just about any Beatles song. Then there are those songs that, even if people don't know the verse lyrics, they'll almost always join in whole-heartedly during the choruses: "Sweet Caroline", "Margaritaville", "Brown-Eyed Girl", "Suspicious Minds", etc.
