Thread Name: Ways not to introduce your song
Subject: RE: Ways not to introduce your song
I posted something about this on my facebook page a few weeks back, but more along the lines of the singers who talk for ages before they sing. It seems to be an older person's thing, but they all have one thing in common, they seem to love the sound of their own voice and a captive audience forced to listen.

Get on with it - less talking, more singing please.

I especially hate the, 'I don't really know this song too well," or the, "I'm till working on this one." Great - but work on it at home, or come back when you know it really well. Rehearsing it in front of an audience, is the height of bad manners and disrespect.

Forgotten the words? We're all human, and if I do, I normally say something like, 'It's at times like this that you discover the memory is directly connected to the sweat glands.'
