Playing songs in a covers band you dont always like.? in General Discussion Posted 20 hours ago 13 minutes ago, Paul S said: No distress, Warren - just mystified why you felt the need to score points off me in public when you could have just ignored it. Hey Ho. I don't 'throw my toys out of the pram' about songs I don't like. As I said in my post... I often have and no doubt will continue to play sings I don't like. Ask the chaps about 'Mr Brightside' and a smiley mask. I have also, in past bands, played 'Walking on Sunshine' and, God help me, 'Sit Down' - both of which I dislike. And a whole raft of others. But not hate. I simply refuse to play songs I hate - a gain in level. As I recall I only ever point blank refused to play something once, long ago in band far away. If you don't find songs you hate, that's all the better for you. There are some I do hate. As a general principle of Life being forced to do something I hate doing is a subject I do feel strongly about - again, as I said. And if you find that laughable, I guess we just have different values and tolerances. I think you're taking this all a bit too seriously Paul, so I'll say no more on the subject. 'Sit Down' has just been suggested by my rock covers band 🙄. My only thought on that will be (when we get together tomorrow) is that yes, let's try it (I've never played it) and see what the response is like. I think the only reason we don't do Mr.Brightside and Sex On Fire is that they have been done to death and even the punters are a bit 🙄 with them now. Love playing and listening to both though.
