What does your setlist look like?

Recommended Posts

I was digging through the forum and found this thread and which was quite an interesting read. So I figured that maybe we can all exchange setlist?

 

My band is just getting started, so we don't have a fixed list yet. But here's what we have so far (in no particular order):

 

- Free: All Right Now

- Black Sabbath: Paranoid

- Deep Purple: Black Night

- Deep Purple: Strange Kind Of Woman

- Neil Young: Rocking In The Free World

- The Who: Behind Blue Eyes

- Uriah Heep: Stealin

- Steppenwolf: Born To Be Wild

- Status Quo: Claudie

- Status Quo: Wild Side of Life

 

Some stuff we plan on doing (or that I want to propose to the band :) ) includes

 

- Asia: Heat Of The Moment

- Guns 'n' Roses: 14 Years

- The Beatles: Come Together

- Free: The Hunter

- Free: Wishing Well

- The Scorpions: The Zoo

- The Scorpions: New Generation

- Judas Priest: Hell Bent For Leather

- Iron Maiden: Lord Of The Flies

- Saxon: Play It Loud

- Nirvana: Come As You Are

- Nick Lowe: Cruel To Be Kind

 

And some typical stuff like "Sweet Home Alabama" and so on :)

 

The idea is to get a bunch of well- or lesser-known cover songs, and in time throw in some originals as well.

 

Anyone want to play?

I always want to make that same mistake. I think it (Stuck in the Middle with You) was getting airplay around the same time as "The Joker".

. . . among others - for one cover band I'm in. This stuff seems to pay well enough and is popular provided we dress up on stage and act mad (hardy for my art though!)

You have to know them all, but obviously we don't ever play them all. You never know which ones the singer will use (but you usually get an idea before the gig)

Yup, Gerry Rafferty, used to live round the corner from him. His band (Mavericks) beat my band (Corvettes) in the 'MacBeat' competition in 1964.

We do a rocked up version of that one. The original actually has no drums. :idea:

 

For years we introduced it as a Bob Dylan number until we were corrected.

Sat. nite's set:

 

Jethro Tull - Cross-Eyed Mary

 

Rush - Tom Sawyer

 

Yes - South Side of the Sky

 

Deep Purple - Hush

 

Jethro Tull - Thick as a Brick

 

Deep Purple - Highway Star

 

Pink Floyd - Have A Cigar

 

King Crimson - Dinosaur

 

I've noticed that, with a few exceptions, PinkFloyd has a tendency to send people in search of other stuff to do. The crowd was having a wild time until we did 'Cigar'.... midway through that tune, they started drifting away.

 

Unless I'm doing an all-Floyd set, I'll likely not include much of their stuff from now on. Which is a drag, cuz we love playing it.

I used to think I was Libertarian. Until I saw their platform; now I know I'm no more Libertarian than I am RepubliCrat or neoCON or Liberal or Socialist.

 

This ain't no track meet; this is football.

David Crowder Band - Undignified

DCB - Make a Joyful Noise/I Will Not Be Silent

DCB - No One Like You

DCB - All Creatures

Chris Tomlin - How Great is Our God

Chris Tomlin - You do All Things Well

Chris Tomlin - Famous One

Matt Redman - Dancing Generation

Matt Redman - Gifted Response

Matt Redman - Seeing You

Matt Redman - Blessed be Your Name

Paul Baloche - Praise Adonai

 

And I'm not sure about the original songwriters for the following songs:

 

God of Wonders

My Glorious

Shout to the Lord

Come Thou Fount

 

There's tons more music we have charts for, but we haven't really worked 'em up yet. All of the above are in fairly regular rotation, and we're adding more all the time. And I suppose it should be fairly obvious from the song and artist selection that I'm in the youth worship band at my church. :)

Both songs were on "The Resevoir Dogs" soundtrack, which is, IMO, one of the best soundtracks ever.

So far, the unfinished set list for our new band includes:

 

- Folsum Prison Blues

- Think I'll Just Stay Here And Drink

- Today I Started Loving You Again

- Working Man Blues

- Neon Moon

- Boot Scoot Boogie

- Farewell Party

- Kiss An Angel Good Morning

- Honky Tonk Man

- Just Call Me Lonesome

- King Of The Road

- Good Hearted Woman

- Rolley Polley

- The End Is Not In Sight

- All The Gold In California

- Driving My Life Away

- Pop A Top

- Drive

- Waltz Across Texas

- Take It Easy

- Amos Moses

- If Your Thinking You Want A Stranger, There's One Coming Home

 

I haven't been in a real band for about 25 years. It's an incredible feeling to play with a complete group of musicians again. I'm kicking myself for taking such a long hiatus.

The only band I play in that does tons of covers never has a setlist.

 

When I joined the band, the drummer said "Learn lots of Bob Marley, Springsteen, and John Cougar Mellencamp and you'll be fine."

 

He was right.

 

The ones I didn't know I faked my way through.
