    • All My Love [Led Zeppelin]
  • Santa Monica [Everclear]
  • Last Kiss [J. Frank Wilson & the Caveliers]
  • Black [Pearl Jam]
  • High & Dry [Radiohead]

Just to clarify: the last song on the written setlist was the “Wonderful/Irresistible” double shot. But then the audience wouldn’t let us leave, so we started improvising. After “Santa Monica,” and for reasons which I don’t pretend to understand, I felt emboldened enough to strap on Tyrone’s guitar and play two mostly instrumental covers: “Last Kiss” and “Black”. Then, realizing it was 11:30pm and I was supposed to be at Pearson by midnight to pick Bri up from a flight in from Regina (it’s a long story), I resumed my rightful place behind the drum kit, and Tyrone and I brought the proceedings to a halt with a snippet of “High & Dry” by Radiohead. Alright, that’s not quite true: as I was scrambling out of the house, Tyrone was serenading the audience with a solo version of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” by the renowned chanteuse Cyndi Lauper. God only knows what happened next.
