On the street where you live first up, both in the order of things and to be sung tonight. Ed forgot the interlude of oooohs and Aaaaaaghs but most of us kept going!
Chicken tikka next, which was coming along nicely. Don't forget the meaningful gap before the patch.
Get around, gets around fast doesn't it? Tiny little timing issue. See blog two weeks back. Ed introduced counting and clapping and wept, 'give me the rhythm,' till finally they got it. But would they keep it?
Subway next, extra fried chicken. Oh yeah. No one remembers to sing the sweet little response part for two lines of the last two chorus so we worked on that and then fixed a lyric.
Ed attempted to complement our tone but no one was listening so we instead recived a lecture on behaviour. Then the complement of the year - we sound like one voice!
Lean on me was begun a Capella and when the piano joined in we were still in tune! Whoooohoo! That key change is still scary though! And we are having some nice gaps, Elaine already had a record of these in her folder.
This arrow is to remind everyone that there a key change coming up that no one wants to do ⬆️.
Breaking up is hard to do, but that key change was excellent!
Waterloo next! Missing out a song to slip this one in tonight (reach out). And Ed said marvellous. Even though there was a quick-bit that tripped a few people up.
Time for reach out, HUH WHAT? Hah! This one needs some homework because the words don't seem to fit on the lines they are supposed to. Please. Keep singing, that's not why I love you! Cat xxxx
