Here are a few suggestions for Steve ... I'd love to hear Red Is A Mean Mean Colour, Victim of Love or Irresistible .

For me "Stranger Comes to Town" ( from the Day family's holiday favourite album) and perhaps "Baby Shoes"?
I also really love Bed in the Corner.
But play what you like. I'll be happy.

I went on Thursday night as a VIP and heard Steve rehearsing a song with Julie Felix.
After my "selfie experience". with Steve I chatted with Julie who was warm and friendly. I asked if she was playing anywhere soon and she quietly handed me a flyer. (She didn't think she should be promoting herself at Steve's gig.)
Regrettably I was too young in the sixties to remember any Julie Felix songs other than " We're going to the zoo".
I looked Julie up on YouTube and there's lots there but I'd like to hear them sing this Cohen song, if I was going ( but I'm not ).
Perhaps Steve could join Julie Felix at her 80th birthday concert in the Charing Cross theatre on 17th June and sing it there?
I have bought tickets for John and me.
Here's the song. I think it's perfect for the pair of them.

Enjoy the Pizza Express experience everyone. It's something special.

Hoping to buy tickets to see Steve at Pizza Express Holborn in February. The Pizza Express website is showing dates of 16th and 17th February and not 15th and 16th as shown on the website here?
Tickets don't go on sale until 2nd July.

It's probably not on your "rehearsed" list but I wake up to the first couple of notes of Bed In The Corner every morning at 5.55. It's sacrilegious really, to use a bit of music like that but maybe you can put things right by playing it in its entirety on Saturday (tomorrow)?
Bringing my daughter Jemima (no2) with me. I like a bit of company and Jemima really loves pizza. ;)
But really, I'll be happy whatever you play. x

My daughter Jemima and I had a great night last night. Steve, James and Barry were on top form and the stool has been replaced by a much comfier swivel affair. (I was so afraid he'd fall from that stool)
There was talk of introducing a double bass player into the trio for their return in April too. Interesting.
I didn't do the "meet and greet" again preferring to meet him, if I can, at the Stage door sometimes and I could never, ever beat the time I did do the meet and greet there and sat slap bang in front of him. That was awesome!
We sat with a reasonable view, quite close but my enjoyment of the evening was marred by someone singing along louder than Steve on the table right behind us to every song. I have a feeling even if Steve brought out a new song he'd have tried to pre-empt every next line and offended my shell-likes with his raucous tones. I think singing along like that should be discouraged apart from the obvious join in refrains etc. It ruins it for me.
We left after Journey's End and missed Make Me Smile. ( I assume?) which was disappointing but I had to take my youngest daughter to her school for a trip to Rome. The airport coach was picking them up from school in the wee hours.
And another thing, I'm always happy to chat to anyone but to the man who sang raucously, kept trying to buy me a drink and then told me not to let my daughter go anywhere near the Pope or any of those paedo priests when in Rome I'd say stick to talking about music and not religion which he clearly knows nothing about.
He'll never know how close he came to wearing that jug of water.
