  • Don't fear the reaper in a medley.

    I have an idea that would use the intro and first verse of Dont fear the reaper in a medley. Just need some songs that would fit in with it to make a medley... Drawing a blank on that one haha...



    So my question is... What songs would work?

    Keep it BOC. Do "This Ain't The Summer Of Love" into "Don't Fear The Reaper" and then finish up with "Burnin' For You".

      We used to mash it up with "Burnin' For You", which is really just the 80's arrangement/production version of the same song.

        Reaper > Donna Summer's Hot Stuff > Venus (the "Burnin' like a silver flame" bit) > Burnin' For You > Reaper

          As a matter of fact, if you have a guy singer, do the verses to Venus, but for the choruses do Hot Stuff to avoid the gender issue. And mash Burnin' into the Hot Stuff chorus.Like this:



          Goddess on the mountain top

          Burning like a silver flame

          The summit of beauty and love

          And Venus was her name



          Lookin' for some hot stuff, baby, this evenin'

          (Burn out the day)

          I need some hot stuff, baby, tonight

          (Burn out the night)

          I want some hot stuff, baby, this evenin'

          (I can't see no reason to put up a fight)

          I'm living for giving the devil his due)

          Gotta have some hot stuff

          Gotta have some love tonight

          I need hot stuff

          I want some hot stuff

          I need some hot stuff

          (And I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you

          I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you)



          Her weapons were her crystal eyes

          Making every man a man

          Black as the dark night she was

          Got what no one else had

          Ow



          Lookin' for some hot stuff, baby, this evenin'

          (Burn out the day)

          I need some hot stuff, baby, tonight

          (Burn out the night)

          I want some hot stuff, baby, this evenin'

          (I can't see no reason to put up a fight)

          I'm living for giving the devil his due)

          Gotta have some hot stuff

          Gotta have some love tonight

          I need hot stuff

          I want some hot stuff

          I need some hot stuff

          (And I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you

          I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you)





          You know you love it.

            I do love it! But you're missing any bits of "Reaper" in there!

                It's a Reaper sandwich



                Reaper Intro



                All our times have come

                Here, but now there, gone

                Seasons don't fear the reaper

                Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain



                (We can be like they are)

                Come on baby

                (Don't fear the reaper)

                Baby take my hand

                (Don't fear the reaper)

                We'll be able to fly

                (Don't fear the reaper)

                Baby I'm your man




                Goddess on the mountain top

                Burning like a silver flame

                The summit of beauty and love

                And Venus was her name



                Lookin' for some hot stuff, baby, this evenin'

                Reaper middle instrumental section (keep 4 on the floor for dance floor)



                Love of two is one

                Here but now they're gone

                Came the last night of sadness

                And it was clear she couldn't go on

                Then the door was open and the wind appeared

                The candles blew then disappeared

                The curtains flew then he appeared...saying don't be afraid



                Come on baby...and she had no fear

                And she ran to him...then they started to fly

                They looked backward and said goodby...she had become like they are

                She had taken his hand...she had become like they are

                Come on baby...don't fear the reaper

                  And a tasty one at that! I might just steal it. We did the Reaper/Burnin for You thing for awhile, but it sort of just fell out of the setlist. Adding some Venus---or at least Hot Stuff--could be really cool.

                    I'm not too sure Donna summers and Venus will go over that well for us...

                      We had "Venus" in another medley and it fell pretty flat for us most nights, so we dropped it, even though I really enjoyed playing it and the way we sounded doing it.



                      Never tried "Hot Stuff", so hard to say. Depends who you're playing for. My instinct is that it is not one of the most recognizable disco-era songs for younger audiences. I don't think most young kids know it the way they know many KC and Sunshine Band or Bee Gees tunes. But for an older crowd, it could work quite well.
