    I think the only track I played more than once as a last song last year was New York New York, & that was only because it was requested.

    Interesting, I play quite a lot of the same tracks so get lots of repetition. Often unless it's requested I will bring up my list of end of the night tracks and ask for them to let me know what they want to hear... quite an eye opener as quite often the track you would have played gets no response yet you know if you did play it they still would have danced!

    I was thinking this. Is there still such a thing as an 'end of night track'? End with a song that gets 'em whooping, cheering and singing - there are one of two of those out there that covers that eventuality.

    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 )
    True. A lot of the time the last song is a request and guess what? As with the requests throughout the night they tend to be from the list compiled & curated by SAMEOLDSAMEOLD Productions LLC working in partnership with McWeddings Inc. I couldn't possibly bring myself to start or end every night with the same track. I still have nightmares about 'That's Amore'.

    Say you're doing an 18th birthday party & you've been playing jiggy jiggy yah yah music all night.. then the time for last tune comes and you bosh ole Blue Eyes on the decks for them because you always play it at other functions. You'd rightly be surprised if you didn't get booed off. Context, people. Context.

    Yes but and no but.....

    No one else has mentioned this and it's specal signicance so maybe some of you would have to go and google it

    So second to the a-for mentioned end of night tracks I have played.....out of 66 gigs I played last year on at least 10 I just had to end the night with

    Dean Parish - I'm On My Way
    Tobi Legend - Time Will Pass You By
    Jimmy Radcliffe - Long After Tonight Is All Over

    Those three tracks have a 'name' and are of massive significance to British modern music culture

    Mastermixes Dirty Dancing megamix ( gives me 10 mins hands free to start packing away )
    Erasure - give a little respect
    Total eclipse of the heart
    Communards - Don't leave me this way
    Hermes House Band - Country Roads
    Stars on 54 - If you could read my mind

    But having said that it varies from crowd to crowd. Students for example usually get a tv theme tune like baywatch
