SNY endured another massive Internet fail today, so apologies for the sudden halt in posts. I’m home now since we don’t have the Internet in the office, but I’m a bit backed up with work so I’ll make this quick:
If you go to see a band and you only know one song by that band, the band is going to play the song. There’s no need to keep yelling out the title over and over again every time the band pauses for a second. Just think about it: If you only know that one song, chances are it’s the band’s biggest hit, and so they’ll probably play it at or near the end of their show.
Frankly, if you only know one song by the band and you’re not really interested in hearing what else the band has to offer, you probably shouldn’t buy a ticket for the band’s concert in the first place. A CD costs less, and you can listen to that one song on repeat without subjecting yourself to anything else from the band’s catalog.
But now that you have the ticket and you’re inside the venue, just shut up and enjoy the show, confident that they’ll play your song eventually. I mean, if you were going to a Don McLean concert, would you just keep screaming “AMERICAN PIE!” until he played it? Probably, because you’re that type of jackass.
I’m going to go ahead and assume Don McLean plans on closing with American Pie regardless of how frequently you call out for it, and you’re certainly not going to get him to alter his setlist by demonstrating your lack of patience with the rest of his music.
I don’t know what Don McLean would play for an encore, or even if he’s still touring, but whatever. Just be quiet.
Also, no one’s going to want to watch your iPhone video of the concert because it’s not going to capture the show with anything like the appropriate audio quality, so you might as well just enjoy the music without trying to save some of it for later, especially since you’ve already made it clear that you’re not really interested in hearing anything but the one song you know anyway.
