THE LEGENDS SONGLIST

The Legends play a lively mix of the best from the 80s, 90s and 00s (intelligent, tasty or both), a few earlier faves (for added flavour),
lots of lovely Celtic-style toe-tappers (not very calm at all)
and even some songs made up by us and our mates (very daring)!
We play them because we love them, and reckon you will too - but check out this list and make up your own mind ... ____________________________________________
