To The Bangles:
I like the famous songs best.
That is because I know the lyrics,
and I have had time to think about the meaning of the words.
I want to hear W.L.A.E. and Manic Monday and Eternal Flame.
Please continue playing the set list you always play.
It's great, because when I go see a band,
I want to hear the songs that are in jukeboxes in the Taverns
and bars all over America.
A new song on the set list is fine,
once in awhile but truth be told,
I like the famous Bangles songs that I know the words to the most.
New songs, sometimes take awhile to understand and enjoy.
Others might want a set list with nothing but all new songs,
but not me.
I only get to see the Bangles once, maybe twice a year,
and so the gold hits never get old.
Besides, at the shows, especially the ones at the Fairgrounds,
or the concerts at the High School,
or at the summer music on the Square events,
there are always a lot of 'new' people in attendance.
At these shows many new people in the crowd have never been to a Bangles concert before.
Often at Bangles concerts, its a first Bangles show ever !,
for about half the of the audience.
Yes these 'new' people have seen the Bangles on Tv and they know WLAE, Manic Monday
and Eternal Flame, but this group of new people has never
seen the Bangles play rock and roll music in a "live" setting.
Naturally they, and me, want to hear the most famous tunes, the most.
I never get bored of watching the Bangles strum guitars and sing,
and I like to sing along to the famous Bangles chart gold.
