    Default The Bar Band Set List from Hell

    I've done a lot of gigging in various bar bands around the US and Canada, and I have actually been handed set lists similar to this one. If I never play one of these moldy old songs again it will be too soon:


    Cocaine
    All Right Now
    Tush
    Mony Mony
    What I like About You
    You Really Got Me (Yes, even the VH version)
    You Look Wonderful Tonight
    Roadhouse Blues
    Gimme Three Steps
    Honky Tonk Woman
    Gloria
    Oh, and don't forget. The singer's brother wants to sit in, so we'll just do a *shudder* Blues Jam.


    Did I miss any?


    (I must admit that I still like playing "Taking Care of Business".)

    Just about every bar band I've ever seen includes "Hard To Handle" by the Black Crows and usually an AC/DC song like "Shook Me All Night Long."

    Probably the coolest thing I ever saw a bar band do was play a medley of "Who Do You Love," "Desire" (U2) and "She's The One" (Springsteen) that seamlessly fit into a nearly 15 minute jam all centered around that classic Bo Diddly drum beat.

    How about the hapless souls still trying to get the opening drum pattern of Zep's "Rock And Roll" correct?

    Not to mention "Black Magic Woman", "Born To Be Wild", any Beatles or Stones tune and (God forbid)..."Proud Mary".

    When I used to go to bars it seemed that every other bar band led the place in a rendition of America Pie.

    Every band where I'm at plays "Hard to Handle" and "I can't get enough of your love". It's like a rule or something. I'm to the point I hate them. And on top of it, most of the bands, lets just say say, the lead singer leaves a bit to be desired.

    Yup. The crooners with a guitar (before drum machines turned them into one man bands) also would "bless" us with their interpretations of "Feekings".

    Believe me, they're still playing it. As well as all of the above. (oh , I've never used that one before. It's fun.)

    Hurts So Good
    Walk Softly On This Heart Of Mine
    Brown Eyed Girl
    Brown Sugar
    Beer Drinkers Hell Raisers
    Cumbersome
    Long Train Runnin
    Mary Jane's Last Dance
    Old Time Rock N Roll
    Pretty Woman
    Pride and Joy
    Takin Care of Business
    Walk This Way
    Sweet Emotion

    Some on this list are just worn out. Others are never played correctly. But more importantly, if you don't play these songs you won't make $$$!!!

    That's why my band writes its own music. We don't make money either!
