the list

The first step of my daily preparation was to choose the songs that I might want to sing that evening. The selection process was loose because it was important for me to sing songs that worked in the moment, considering the crowd, the atmosphere and my emotional state at the time. Nothing, for me, would have been worse than to interrupt the flow of a swinging party with a doleful ballad, or to meet a crowd full of misery with a thoughtless lark. I had compiled a long list of songs I knew or wanted to try out. So I sat down with my list and considered the possibilities.
