I. Hate. This. Song.
This song is bad country and bad rock all rolled into one turgid stink bomb.I hated it in 1987 when WXRT first scarred my psyche with it and it followed me in top 40s and later oldies cover bands for nearly 30 years.
I now refuse to do it, citing a finite amount of movement left in my arms that will not be wasted on that song.
Someone is MAKING you play his part? You can play your own part to this song, and no one would notice. And then a drummer would be listening in the audience, and then they'd think less highly of you. Still, pays the same either way.don't stop believin'...I'm not Steve Smith and don't like being made to play his part on this tune.
-Just because we , personally, are tired of hearing/playing a songI don't gig so I'm curious about this: if it's boring, why do you play it?
I noticed some of you post that some songs make the audience go to sleep. So why play that? Don't most bands have a playlist? Or is this a case of someone from the audience requesting a song?
As a hobby home drummer, I don't play anything I don't like.
Pardon my ignorance since I don't gig!
Got it!-Just because we , personally, are tired of hearing/playing a song
if the audience likes it-
...you do it- there are exceptions.
-Maybe someone in the band likes it/insists so
...you do it.
**I play it with the same enthusiasm as the rest of the songs although I'd prefer not to play it (ya love to hate it)
-Surely there are songs you dislike but in a band situation you do it for the greater good of the team.
-You pick your battles.
