    Could this be the ideal bad-taste Christmas present for someone you don't like?

    What tracks would you put on it? Perhaps Hootenanny, Instant Concert, Who Pays The Ferryman, Whispering Brass, Boogie in the Bandstand...and many, many others!

    There's only one piece I don't like playing.... Silent Night! So that can go on there!

    Edit: Don't think there's any need to mention Composers or Arrangers - Just Titles. This is supposed to be the season of goodwill! (RT)

    Thanks Mods. I was thinking more in terms of what could be considered "cheesy" music, rather than being offensive to any particular composer or arranger.

    Have you heard Phil Harper's Bolero-tinged arrangement with offstage cornets? It might make you reconsider! We played this with him last Christmas and I got to pound the tamtam at the end. :biggrin:

    Also, I think Instant Concert is a very clever arrangement. We do Tune Bingo with this, and see who in the audience spots the most tunes. (and stop them ticking everything by listing a few tunes that aren't there.)

    The Floral Dance. You know it makes sense.

    Concierto di Aranjuez, and in fact anything where the arranger has seen fit to add a wholly unnecessary kit part where one didn't exist in the first place.

    The Black and White Minstrels :mad:

    I'm sure I'll think of more.....

    I'd forgotten how awful that really was!

    To the list could be added Community Land and Florrie Ford's Favourites. Best not to play those on a full stomach!
