Thread Name: BS: You Know You're Distracted When...
Subject: RE: BS: You Know You're Distracted When...
I had a gig on Saturday and the crowd was pretty somber but polite, i.e. applauding at the right times etc. I tried my best not to sing anything that would remind, distract, or offend. I started to sing Rhymes and Reasons by John Denver. When I got to the lines "Though the city starts to crumble, and the towers fall around us" I stopped singing. Somehow I kept playing the guitar. As I looked around the room, it didn't seem that anyone even realized I stopped....and there were some avid Denver fans in the group. Here was an entire room of distracted folks. I'm not sure if I'll be able to sing that song for a while, at least not those lines, without turning into a blubbering fool....
