That Overthinking It post has me questioning my standards as well. Every once in a while, maybe it's OK to pander to the crowd and sing stuff they wanna hear and can sing along with.
I may just hit up the Gladstone tonight, just to test myself and see whether I'm even capable of pandering. Will I sing New Orleans Is Sinking and Sunglasses At Night? Or will I torment them with Ain't Gonna Bump No More (With No Big Fat Woman), or whatever obscure equivalent I can find in the book?
