This was the first open mic night in a while that didn’t have the the motor bikes occupying the car park. We decided that we would each sing 2 songs and then go round again if time allowed.
Jason kicked off proceedings with his own song ‘There Was A Young Man Namely’
Manus and Hank were up next and performed a song he has often sung, ‘True Colours” and an instrumental version of ‘When A Man Loves a Woman’
Simon followed and sang ‘Just Because’ and a Tom Paxton song ‘How Do You Like Your Coffee in Bed’
Brenda read out her poem ‘Breathe’ and sang ‘Eden Weiss’ from the Sound Of Music’and we all joined in.
Lisa and Jason performed Steve Still’s song ‘And So Begins The Task’ and followed this with their own new song ‘Who Knows When Who Knows Where’
Mike Osborne sung ‘Jersey Girl’, a song written by Tom Waits and then Van Morrison’s ‘Tupelo Honey’
Frank Xerox performed a Japanese song ‘Sukiyaki’ and ‘Corinna Corinna’
Heather sang the Tears For Fears song ‘Mad World’ and then a song that she wrote herself in the Dorian mode called ‘I Don’t Know’
Nelson King up next sang ‘I Want TheWorld To Slow Down’ and a song of his own ‘Waves’
Emma read her poem about losing weight and then she sang her song ‘Diclotamasiflugafenax’
Milton Hide were last up and performed their own song ‘Old Tom’s Story’ and another song ‘Places to Go People To See’
Those who wanted to sing again were offered the opportunity to go up again. Manus performed his own song ‘Out Of The Frame’
Chris sang his own song ‘Hair’
Brenda read a poem ‘Meditation To Kadish’
Jason and Lisa sang ‘Where On Earth Would You Rather Be?’
Mike Osborne performed ‘Come On In My Kitchen’
The evening abruptly at around 23:20 when the temporary pub managers asked us to wrap up. It meant that Milton Hide were not able to perform after having waited patiently. Perhaps we will be able to make it up to them.
