This is a reference list of cover songs Dan Vallerand pulls from when doing Fiascos and the occasional/when appropriate appearance in an open mic or regular show. Unless marked otherwise, all songs are performed solo/acoustic. New songs will be added once learned. Dan is open to song choice suggestions, as, admittedly, he has an affinity for more obscure songs and artists.
