Correct, old friend. While everyone in the audience has likely heard My Way, the story the lyrics tell is not what you wish to convey to an older/senior audience that is currently residing on death's waiting room. Many, many years ago, Donny Pesce said to me, play only songs that will keep their toes tapping and make them want to get up and dance, even though they physically are incapable of dancing. Leave them on a high note, singing an upbeat song as you walk out the door with your gear and you will be there every month for as long as you wish. Donny was absolutely right and I have followed that rule for three decades with great success. My signature last song was Show Me The Way To Go Home using an upbeat shuffle beat - the audiences loved it, and many were still singing it as I walked out the door. Oh how I miss being on stage.

All the best,
