Do you play New York New York as your last song
Posted 15 June 2005 - 10:03 AM
For me I will only play it as the last track if the client requests it. Not that it's a bad record, far from it, it's just that in my opinion it's so predictable to play this as the last song, and I'd rather not be that predictable.

That said it is predictable, and therefore I try not to use it unless specifically asked for.
I try to work hard at slipping in unusual tracks (although popular) depending on the event and audience.

Now, I tend to do Fly me to the moon by Frank Sinatra - much more classy or if I want a fun ending, I use Ellis Hall - Flip flop fly (from Chicken run)!
Otherwise depends on the customers requirement.

Some of what goes towards its popularity for an Ender, I think is that it covers the desires of several different types of people who may be on the dancefloor at the end of the evening: EG:
*) Its "pace" is such that it can be a slowy, suitable for couples to do the "turn around slowly with your eyes shut while holding onto your partner" dance
*) its pace also means that it can be danced to by the "stand in a line or circle with your arms over the shoulders of your neighbours in the line/circle, while kicking your legs up" mob too.
*) It can be sung along to easily.
*) Its got a definate FINALÉ FINISH feel to the end of the track...eg: "its up to you Neeeew Yoooooorrrrrk, NEEEEEEWWWWWW YOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRK !"

But I've never played it earlier in the evening (other than as diner/cocktail/reception music). If I play it at all, it's one of the last one or two songs.

Tend to play my slowies towards the end, then something uptempo to give them a good memory of the night and then as people are leaving put on 'goodnight sweetheart goodnight' by the spaniels. They sort of get the hint then.

I think it's because I was at too many parties in my 20's when it was ALWAYS the last song - I can't bring myself to play it at the end of the night because it's so predictable, and it's such a "last song" that I can't seem to fit it in anywhere else LOL.

I did try "Time of my life" (Dirty Dancing Soundtrack) as the last song at my last wedding gig and Surprisingly went down very well.
