Nightrain

Here’s my setlist from Nightrain. Be assured it is only a temporary deviation from the norm for me, not a sudden change in direction, but I did enjoy it, I do like ALL these songs and I would do it a few more times if the chance came up.

8:30pm-9:15pm – Album-Oriented Rock

No point playing the big anthems before everyone’s had a drink or two, so I decided to play what might otherwise be called ‘The Old Grey Whistle Set’.

Bob Dylan – Blowin’ In The Wind
Fleetwood Mac – The Chain
Eric Clapton – Cocaine
Alan Parsons Project – Eye In The Sky
Supertramp – Breakfast In America
Emerson, Lake and Palmer – Karn Evil 9 – 1st Impression (Part 2)
Genesis – Land Of Confusion
Van Der Graaf Generator – Theme 1
Deep Purple – Hush
Rush – The Temple Of Syrinx
Rainbow – Long Live Rock’n’Roll
ZZ Top – Sharp Dressed Man
Journey – Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)

12:15am-1:15am – Anthem-Oriented Rock

Had some beers and some live music, so no messin’ now. Solid gold rock anthems all the way.

Quiet Riot – Cum On Feel The Noise
Bon Jovi – Runaway
Van Halen – Ain’t Talkin’ Bout Love
Iron Maiden – Can I Play With Madness

2:15am-3am – Any Other Rock? (Jonny vs Simon)

We ended the nights with 45 minutes of tag-team DJing, me on laptop, Simon Landmine on CDs, first putting in some anthems we’d missed earlier then winding things down with the last 3 songs.

Metallica – Enter Sandman
Megadeth – Symphony of Destruction
