Subject: RE: Best Closing Song for Nursing Home Gigs
On the Sunny Side of the Street, McHugh/Fields, 1930. (For a while I also ended solo bar gigs with this one.) You play that extended intro - "I walked with no one and talked with no one, I had nothing but shadows. Then one morning you passed, and I brightened at last, etc." and folks wonder what you're up to, and then the actual song kicks and they get it.
