What Song(s) Will You Request On The Next Tour?



What Song(s) Will You Request On The Next Tour?

Postby peterchecksfield » Fri Oct 17, 2008 11:00 am

I'm keen to hear 'Walking The Floor Over You' (he did a couple of great versions of this in 1993).

If Linda gets on stage with Jerry then it has to be 'Jackson'.

Otherwise, I'll probably shout for 'Rockin' Jerry Lee', 'Keep My Motor Running' or 'Good News Travels Fast' (I think Jerry needs reminding that he recorded some great rockers after he left Sun & Mercury!).

I'm keen to hear Jerry doing his greatest song: "Breathless" - but I don't think he'll hear my pleas! I hope he doesn't open the shows as usual - with "Roll over Beethoven".

I doubt if he'll do 'Middle Age Crazy' (& Robert & B.B. would probably struggle with this). All the others wouldn't be a problem for Jerry.

VERY unlikely! I'd like to hear 'Goosebumps' myself, but Jerry wouldn't even play this on the 1995 tour...

To be honest I don't think Jerry's voice does the song justice these days...

If I was going to request one of his big country hits then I'd probably go for 'Once More With Feeling', something he'd remember on a good night (I've always loved 'She Still Comes Around', but Jerry struggled to remember that in 1983!).

'Lovin' Up A Storm' would be great. As for Country songs, so many of them, so perhaps he'll surprise us.

He should remember one of his biggest hits, 'What Made Milwaukee Famous', since he re-recorded it for LMS.

Many fans would like to hear him do this without Rod Stewart's contribution, though I love the LMS version just as it is.
Long ago in Ferriday down in Louisiana, They all watched Jerry play and pump that old piana

I guess it depends on the shape of his voice "on the day"

I'd especially like to hear 'You Can Have Her' again, I might try that one...

I've heard several live versions of 'Crawdad Hole' over the years though & it's rarely worked well.
