I need some new song ideas

A friend and I are seniors in high school and we have a band. I play alto saxophone and he plays drum set. We have played at basketball games, in school concerts, and background music at various school events. Our next (and possibly last) performance is going to be at our graduation, so obviously we want it to be our best performance yet. Our problem is we cannot seem to find a good song/songs to play. We are looking for something fast, upbeat, and fun. Somewhere between 3 to 15 minutes would be perfect. Some of the songs we have played before include: Shipping Up To Boston, Megalovania, Blue (Da Ba Dee), 300 Violin Orchestra, Harder Better Faster Stronger, Eye Of The Tiger, ect. Hopefully that gives you a good idea of the type of music we enjoy playing.

Any song suggestions would be very helpful. Also, if you have any other places I could post this question please let me know. Thanks in advance for any suggestions anyone gives.

Live: Prelude in G flat - Op 16 no 3: Alexander Scriabin

 A short and sweet little prelude very befitting of summer. This is the piece I played for our local spring concert and the audience loved it. :) I think this piece is technically harder than it seems, to get voicing, even chords and tone quality right, each finger needs to be used with care. The prelude is from Scriabin's early period, yet, it is mature and different. The first theme/subject has an improvisatory manner, which is always complimented by the chorale like second theme/section. I always get goosebumps towards the end, just listen to all of those voices! Scriabin=heaven
