#GoodEnough500

February 15, 2018

Good Enough LIVE Karaoke are playing our 30th and 31st shows of 2018 tonight!

I’ll be playing keys and guitar at the Dakota Tavern from 10pm to 1am with Danny Gorman on guitar, Del Cowsill on bass, and Doug MacGregor on drums. Out in Mississauga at the Lionheart British Pub it’ll be Will Gooch on guitar, Mihoko Koga on keys and guitar, Mike Small on bass and Braeden Craig on drums. Yes! That’s 2 versions of Good Enough LIVE Karaoke playing in 1 night!

We added another 50 songs to our repertoire 2 weeks ago, bringing our total song-list up to 350 songs, and we added another 20 songs for our Valentines Day show at Supermarket last night:

Al Green – Let’s Stay Together*
Bee-Gees – How Deep Is Your Love?
Ben E. King – Stand By Me*
Bryan Adams – (Everything I Do) I Do It For You
Cure – Friday I’m In Love*
Def Leppard – Pour Some Sugar On Me*
Elvis Presley – Love Me Tender*
Extreme – More Than Words
Fine Young Cannibals – She Drives Me Crazy
Fleedwood Mac – Landslide*
London Beat – I’ve Been Thinking About You*
Percy Sledge – When A Man Loves A Woman*
Righteous Brothers – Unchained Melody*
Roxette – It Must’ve Been Love
Sinead O’Connor – Nothing Compares 2 U
Spin Doctors – Two Princes*
Tiffany – I Think We’re Alone Now*
Troggs – With A Girl Like You
Urge Overkill / Neil Diamond – Girl, You’ll Be A Woman Soon*
Whitney Houston – I Will Alway Love You

We played 12 of the 20 songs (indicated with a *) last night and they all went well, so we’ll be offering the Valentines list at the Dakota tonight too! I did not share this 20-song list with Del Cowsill yet and he’s playing bass tonight (Mike Small was on bass at Supermarket last night), but he knows how to play most Top 10 hits from the early 60’s to late 90’s so it’s probably fine.

We’d hit a wall, and our repertoire had been stuck at around 300 songs for the past 2 years, while we solidified the line-up of musicians in the band (currently sitting at 14 members) strengthened our chops and worked on the songs we had, but after playing 178 shows last year and averaging 20 shows-per-month since August 2017, it’s feeling like the time is now to rapidly add a bunch more songs to our list. Our goal is to have 500 songs on our list by the beginning of May. #goodenough500
