Thread Name: Originality of song choice
Subject: RE: Originality of song choice
"Requests can lead you into strange territory -- funny sometimes."
Martin Pearson (vocal/guitar & comedian) claims that he's received a request for Tubular Bells.
From an audience members point of view I'd prefer a varied program - mix of traditional and original, serious and humourous. Hearing a familiar song, trad or original, is like visiting an old friend but meeting a new one is just as important.
Do you want to encourage an audience to join in or discourage them? That would affect your choice as would the venue and style of event.
