Genie Dumb requests (55* d) RE: Dumb requests 03 Nov 14

Sometimes when I play in nursing homes or assisted living facilities—one voice, one acoustic guitar—I get requests for things like "The Blue Danube Waltz" or other such that is written for an orchestra, or something else that's more an ensemble instrumental piece than a "song."
Never quite sure what those folks want me to do by way of "playing" such pieces.

But it's the guess-what-song-I'm-thinking-of type requests that really make me sigh.
E.g., someone will ask for "a Kenny Rogers song" and I'll oblige by doing "The Gambler,"
after which the requester will say,
"No, that's not it."
