My cover band usually plays three sets of music, with about 16-18 songs in each set. The set list is always in flux – new songs added, old songs taken away, stuff mixed and matched, etc. BUT – we always (always!) end with the same song: “Zombie” by the Cranberries. We have since our first show in that tiny podunk bar a year and a half ago, and we still do today.
So it came as quite a surprise when, at a recent show, our lead singer grabbed the mic and said, “Welll … Thanks for coming out … This is our last one of the night … This is a little tune by THE ZOMBIES!”
The Zombies? Take that man’s ninth beer away.
On another note, how great is the song “Zombie” for real? Jesus, I love that song. It can be the worst show or the best show, but when we wrap up with that, we are start jumping around.
IN YOUR HEAAAAD.
