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.

Hello everyone,

 

This week we’re at The Lamplighter again – from 7:00 pm ish to 10:00 pm ish

 

This is the 83rd songlist I have produced since we started (Other peoples contributions always welcome)

 

As we only have 12 weeks until Christmas day it won’t be long until we break out the trusty Christmas book, I know some of you are far more excited about that than others 🙂

 

The other thing we need t think about is the Christmas dinner, we usually have a Christmas dinner and a sing along the first or second Thursday in December open to partners friends and even random people you met on the street as long as they pay their own way. We will need to decide soon so that we can sort out where we are playing during December.

 

Carrying with my theme from a couple of weeks ago the night will start something like this

 

Don’t marry her
House of gold
These boots were made for walking
Burning love
Fight song
Going to the chapel
Karma Chameleon
Last train to Clarksville
Miss Otis regrets
River Deep
American Pie (Just for Mick)

 

Take care and see you at the Lamplighter

 

Ian …

Hi everyone,

 

Hope your week has been good since we last go together. Back at the Lamplighter again this week from 7:00 pm ish to 10:00 pm ish. We are going back to the 2nd Thursday of the month at the Olde Red Lion and all other weeks at The Lamplighter.

 
We don’t usually ask for any money but earlier this year Gary and Bernie set up the website for us. This does cost us and we asked for a donation of £3 toward the website charges. The money we originally have has now gone toward those charges and was wondering if anyone who didn’t contribute last time would like to donate now?

 

Wendy is always willing to accept any donations 🙂

 

On to the songlist which this week has been provided by Colin, don’t forget you can all make a list up:

 

Dedicated Follower of Fashion
I Will Survive
Space Oddity
Mrs. Robinson
Half The World Away
It Must Be Love
My Life
Daydream Believer
Let It Be
Big Yellow Taxi
Mad World
Lighthouse
All the best,

 

Ian & Mick
