Thursday 14th Sept at the Lamplighter

Following our very enjoyable and successful outing as Pirates (and you can choose which meaning of ‘outing’ you prefer) on Saturday, this week’s songlist is a Motown-free zone although we may go for some in the second half!

List for the first half should closely approximate to:

You’re so vain
Take it easy
Sha La La La Lee
Going to the Chapel
Running Bear
Viva La Vida
Space oddity
Mr Tambourine Man
Pencil Full of Lead
The Cave
Maggie May
I Useta Love Her
The Free Electric Band

As ever, second half off-piste.

Hope to see you at The Lamplighter Pub from around 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm on Thursday.

Happy – Uke style!

Watch this video to see how Walk Of The Earth combine their Uke playing skills with other musical instruments with that well known song released by Pharrel Williams called Happy

Info & Songlist for Thursday 24th Aug at the Lamplighters

Hi Everyone

Only going to be a quick email tonight I hope.

Before we get onto this weeks songs there are a couple more gigs we have lined up. The first is on October 7th and will be at a wedding, not just any wedding but Colins daughter, please keep this date free and let Mick Colin or myself know if you are available. It will be a very special day for everyone there.
The second gig is way in the future and will be December 7th at Duston WI I think there will only be room for 10 or 12 people to play but another date for your diary.

Ok onto the songlist, it was suggested that when we go over to Isham on September 9th to the “Strum like a pirate” day, don’t forget there is a prize for the best dressed pirate so get out your pirate hats, eye patches, wooden legs and stuffed parrots. Anyway I digress so back to the songlist It was suggested last week that for something different we do a set of our “Soul” songs, I will assume that most groups do newer songs now or the standard old ones there probably aren’t going to many songs like the list below. It was only a suggestion and don’t forget we are a totally democratic group so if you hae nay other suggestions please let us know.

Heaven must have sent you
Love really hurts without you
The snake
You to me are everything
Young hearts run free
Hooked on a feeling
Red light spells danger
River deep
Sugar pie
Your too good to be true

The three songs we are leading everyone else on are

Proud Mary
lighthouse
Irish Rover

See you all on Thursday

Ian & Mick

there might be a new book out this week if I pull my finger out
