Today's theme is Quotes
I love quotes. They say so much so simply.
As one quote I like put it, my note is too long because I haven't the time to make it shorter.
Well that's what a good quote does for us, succinctly summarizes.
This setlist matches a quote or two to a contemporary folk cut. Sentiment will match, though the method for conveying them is different.
Here are the songs followed by the list of quotes by theme.
