Right Round UP! 2/17/07 - Setlist and Commentary

Wow. Just WOW. AMAZING night last night.

I'm fairly certain at last count there were somewhere between 450 and 500 in attendance, which was incredible for me. I'm hoping that my appeal to the nightclub gods will result in getting me upstairs more often, but we'll just have to see. It's starting to feel like I'm trying to squeeze into a pair of pants I could wear 1o years ago, being on the backstage...

There was a surprising lack of crazy people last night considering the numbers, and although peeps made some requests here and there, nobody was too out of control with it, so that was refreshing. The stalker factor was minimal, and my knee kept its opinions to itself while I was jumping around like I was trapped in a bean - granted, it is not particularly happy with me this morning (can we say bag o' nails in my leg, boys and girls???), but it was absolutely, totally and utterly worth it. I had fun, felt like I had unending energy - the kids going crazy totally fed into that, as always.

Anyway, here's the setlist. I got ridiculously slack at the end, so some of the stuff might be a little incomplete... I'll do my best to remember, though, I promise. I'll also put a ** by any requests (don't think there are many, but we'll see...) OH, and any mashups I created are noted as such, and can be found here for download.
