I've been thinking about what I should play at my show next week (Wednesday at Tazza). I'll be playing for about a half-hour, so figure I'll do around 6-8 songs. I will probably be worrying at this up until the point when I'm actually on stage, but I thought I would solicit your help in thinking about this, since it doesn't seem fair that I should only be wasting my own time in this way.

So, as I say, 6-8 songs, roughly half of them on guitar and half on piano. (I'm not bringing the accordion this time.) I'll probably have Chris Monti come up and sit in on a song or two.

Which original songs should I play?

Recordings of many of these songs are up on my music website. (If I have time later this afternoon I may try to come back and put links to the specific recordings in this entry.)

Also, if there's a song you know I do which isn't listed but which you think I should consider playing at the show, please comment and let me know!
