Could it be the woman in the session was "humor impaired?" My significant other once took to brining a dictionary to performances and reading the definition of Satire before doing some songs. My singing partner Margaret and I make a point of doing at least one ballad per set. We once got a call from someone who was thinking of coming to a library show we were doing and asking if we were going to sing anything like "lady diamond" (his wife had heard it on one of our recordings and was quite upset). Margaret was about to say that of course we wouldn't if it would upset them. Then she stopped mid-thought and figured: This is what we do (performance wise). Rather than go into why we think singing these songs are important she said we probably would sing a ballad,but wouldn't be put off if they chose that moment to visit the bathroom. I don't think they came to the show. Why we thought this would compromise what we're doing performing these songs would be a whole other thread. Cait, you should feel free to sing what moves you.
