What is everyone's idea of a great Zebra set list? Opening song? Encores?

I have an old tape from a WBAB broadcast in 1982 (?) where they opened with Life Has Changed. Decent opener but not quite the punch of As I Said Before. However I think that AISB needs to be moved elsewhere, perhaps they first song of the encore.

Good openers (IMHO):
When You Get There
Wait Until The Summer's Gone
Hard Living Without You

My really radical but totally cool wish for an opening:
Arabian Nights segued into Last Time.

Non-Zep cover tune I would love to hear in the set:
The Spirit of Radio

Zep cover tune I would like to hear in the set:
Since I've Been Loving You

Actually mine would be as an opener: I Don't Care
Encore opener: Wait Until The Summers Gone
Songs I would like to hear: Children At Heart
Zep tunes as opener: When The Levee Breaks
Zep tunes as encore: Stairway To Heaven

How about opening with

Cant Live Without into She's Waiting for you, (one of my favorites)

Encore would be-
Take The Fingers and then the Old version of "The La La Song"

Maybe Zebra should open the set with a Tom Petty song, "The Waiting." Seems the appropriate song to open with.

They opened up the Bridgeview Yacht Club Show with "Light of My Love". That was pretty cool. I get tired of hearing them open with "As I Said Before". They opened up the No Tellin' Lies Tour with "I Don't Like It", I didn't, but at least it was different. I've also heard them open with "Wait Until The Summers Gone".

Gee, don’t think I ever heard Zebra open up with anything but “As I Said ”. And do you know as many times as I have heard that as the opening song I thought it ****ed!

Now…. let me explain. “As I Said Before” is a great song. It has some of the best changes in a song since the Beatles. It is a way better song to play after the hype of the opening of the show when the audience has a chance to get into the time changes and really appreciate the mystic lyrics in the middle.

I think a much better opening number would be “Wait Till The Summers Gone”. Lets face it…we have no idea at all what Randy is screaming out but he’s screaming which makes for good show! Felix is right up front in your face on bass and Guy is doing some great timing with that bit of silence between the verse and the wait till the summers gone part.

“Wait Till The Summers Gone”. Is never going to be anymore then what it is…A GREAT ROCK SONG! Short and Sweet like so many great ones… “Paranoid”,” Communication Breakdown” and such. Yet, why Zebra holds it till the middle of the show as some type of build up is beyond me.

It’s good, it’s hard, and it gets people hyped. Play it first.

I AGREE... WAIT 'TIL THE SUMMER'S GONE FIRST,I ALSO AGREE CHILDREN AT HEART SHOULD BE PLAYED LIVE!!! SHE'S WAITING BY THE DOOR,LAST TIME,MY LIFE HAS CHANGED,ARABIAN NIGHTS, HARD LIVING WITHOUT YOU,KK,ANGELS ARE CALLING,FREE(COULD ALSO BE A GOOD OPENING SONG), TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT,WHY(WITH GUY&FELIX),WHO'S BEHIND THE DOOR,TO FIND YOUR DREAMS, DIRECTIONS............THEN DO AN HOUR ENCORE WITH ZZ TOP,MOODY BLUES,ZIGGY,MONKEY MAN,ZEPPELIN,ETC...

Bob,

The lyrics are on the site! :)

This is from the lyrics page:

ZEBRA - No Tellin' Lies (1984)

WAIT UNTIL THE SUMMER'S GONE
The time is right but don't be critical
The same could happen to you
You know I'm not right and I can't be analytical
About the things you're going through
Look at me baby now you think I might be crazy
But you just can't touch me now
I know I'm not right and I really can't be lazy
and I think I'm going home
Look into my eyes

The high is fine but don't be cynical
The game is still the same
If you're coming up light and you want some retribution
Then believe in what I say
Take a position where there ain't no superstition
And just grab whatever's gold
'Cause if you're coming up light on the day of testimony
They'll just send you packing home
They're gonna do it to ya!

Look into my eyes
Wait for the lies

Wait until the summer's gone
Waiting for the lines to fall
Wait until the summer's gone
Look into my eyes
Wait for the lies...


Quick trivia question: Where did "Hard Living Without You" first appear?

open with "He's making you the fool" I saw them open with that once, and it was explosive. Also I've never heard play the moody blues; i'd like to hear that - any song. Strawberry fields forever. any tunes from the new cd, and a couple that i've never heard live - you're only losing your heart, but no more, drive me crazy, i don't care, i don't like it, no tellin lies, lullaby. This list doesn't sound too popular, i just would like to hear them live. ..well, got to get the vieo camera ready for the festivities today. Everyone have a good fourth. Be careful. This board is addictive.

ryank,

Randy played at my friend Stu's birthday party recently. It was great, and he played a number of the tunes that you mentioned, including Strawberry Fields Forever. Basically ir was a bunch of us who have been Zebra fans for years, yelling out requests for songs: Hard Living Without You, She's Waiting For You, etc.

If you ever get a chance to see Randy solo, I would advise going! Maybe the few of us that live on Long Island canall meet up for a show this summer.

I have a good sound board recording of zebra with the opener being takin a stance. I told Randy its a good power song to start the show off.That was years ago Randy hates that song and most likley will never play that song again.

LIGHT OF MY LOVE IS MY FAVORITE OPENER, ALTHOUGH SAID BEFORE GETS ME PUMPED I GUESS BECAUSE ITS STUCK IN MY HEAD FOR SO LONG, SO MANY SHOWS!!!!!!!!!!! I ALSO LIKE THE IMMIGRANT SONG AS AN OPENER, ALTHOUGH IT SHOULD BE YOUR OWN TUNE FOR THE OPENER, WHAT AM I THINKING "LIGHT" IS NOT A ZEBRA TUNE, BUT WHO CARES!!!!!!!!!! AS LONG AS THEY KEEP OPENING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Opener: Said Before and Randy could say "As I Said Before the album's coming out you beep beep beep censored!" and walks off stage! Crowd dumbfounded!

Seriously, open with Said Before or Wait Until the Summer's Gone

Encore: The Rover
Second Encore: Question (Moody Blues)

At a zebra show, the crowd started heading for the door when zebra started playing the rover. how rude! i wanted to grab each of them, and say "that's disrespectful; don't you like the rover" I loved it. Once in biloxi, i went with a group to see Aerosmith, and everyone started leaving after "dream on". We got in an argument cuz i wanted to see it all. I'd like to hear more of the no tellin lies album live. I don't think it's a bad album at all. I mean, if i hear hit after hit, it might get old.
