“Me and My Baby” Set List

This morning, Keith and I sat down to review and edit our set list ~ the song list we draw from when preparing for a performance ~ songs we know, like to play, and which people seem to respond to.

Here is what we ended up with….a wide variety of tunes written and performed from 1926 to the present; classic country to classic rock, folk and blues.

The list gives the title of the work, followed by the songwriter or artist most of us would associate with the song.

Hopefully you will find some of your old favorites, and we welcome your suggestions for others to add to the list!

  1. Wow! What a list! I still want to order one of your CDs. Do you have any left? Are you going to record some more songs?

    • Yes, we do have some copies of “Smokin’ Oldies” left…we’ll be sure that you get one on your next trip to see us (tee hee!) We will be doing more recording, and are learning to use some basic video editing software to make a music video for the song we wrote about Truth or Consequences…Dean would sure come in handy right about now!!!!

  2. That’s quite the extensive set list. I am pleased to see you have one of my all time favorites, “In Spite of Ourselves.”

    Did you do something different with the post or is it because there is no picture? Usually I have to save the picture in order to view it because it covers more than one screen. Also, I have to scroll to read the post. I know there is a way to do it, but I don’t know how.

    I danced Friday for a CD of original songs that Dave is making. It was fun. Hope all is well. Nan

    • “In Spite of Ourselves” is a great tune, but you just have to listen with an open mind, and not let the earthiness of it get in the way 🙂

      So good to hear that you are dancing.

      You’re probably right about the absence of a picture making a difference in how you view the post….everyone’s computer settings are different, so it’s hard to trouble-shoot….we’re just grateful that you take the time read our blog!

  3. I’m impressed…..what a diverse set of tunes. My hat is off to you. Dr dangerous,MD

    • Hi Doc…Keith says that your being impressed is pretty impressive. Thanks for the comment!
