    Default Top 10 - End of night tracks

    Organising my music and wondering if I've missed any gems in my end of night selection. So far I've got :

    I've had the time of my life
    New York New York / strangers in the night / my way
    Flying without wings
    Never forget / greatest day
    Don't stop me now / bohemian rhapsody
    Diamonds (Rihanna)

    Could do with a few more modern suggestions but I'm sure I'm missing loads!

    Dunno about modern.

    Brown Eyed Girl
    Mustang Sally
    Daydream Believer
    Time of my life
    Sweet Caroline

    Some permutation of the above is often my last five tracks.

    New York, New York
    Champagne Supernova.
    You'll never walk alone
    Angels

    All of the above have been my last track of the night at one time or another.

    Can't take my eyes off of you. I've used the Boystown Gang version, Frankie Valli and on a couple of occasions Muse to close a night off.

    Also Meatload - I would do anything for love (but I wouldn't do that).

    If I have a request to finish on NYNY, I've been known to play the first verse of 'Let's face the music & dance' & do a chop mix segue right into ole blue eyes. Seems to work quite well.

    And finally (for now) if I play the Dirty Dancing tune I use the movie version & during the big instrumental break 2/3 of the way in as a bed to big up a happy couple, wish everybody else well & say my goodbyes. Set your cue points so you know when it's coming

    Edit: Way back when I was a club DJ we had a company diktat which stipulated all company DJs had to play Dean Martin 'That's Amore' at the end of every night. Cheese clubs like where I worked all the way up to the company's flagship dance club.. we had to play it or be sacked immediately! Always got people swaying & singing on their way out but I grew to hate it.

    On a visit to France a while back, there was a bar in Cannes where they always ended the night on 'hit the road Jack'.. An odd one to play you might think, but can be a really nice note to end on I find too.

    That sounds familiar!!

    I also sometimes finish with Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life by Monty Python or Bring Me Sunshine by Morecambe & Wise.

    I tend to use Never can say goodbye at the end most times (depending on the music on the night)

    Ah to have the choice.

    90% of bride, grooms, birthday boys and girls want to finish on Loch Lommond.

    You do get the odd rebel that picks 500 miles instead

    If given the choice I usually go for a big sing along banger like Don't Look Back in Anger.

    People have set tracks for this?

    I tend to judge it on a gig to gig basis.

    Oh yes. We are creatures of habit Steve, playing the same one hundred and thirty nine tracks every night. To keep it interesting, sometimes we change the order a bit.

    Nothing is set in stone, Steve. As you say, each gig, each audience is different. I think that the tracks we are listing are what we play on a regular basis at what we might call a normal or standard gig. ( If such a thing exists )
