Playing a charity fundraiser gig this weekend. I'm playing seven songs in total...here they are.

1. Whiskey in the jar (E) - Thin Lizzy
2. Simple kind of man (F#m) - Lynyrd Skynyrd
3. The end (D) - Doors
4. Last dance with Mary Jane (Am)
5. Have you ever seen the rain (C)
6. I shall be released (A)-Dylan Chrrisie Hynde version
7. Like a rolling stone (C)-Dylan John Mellencamp

Can you please help me arrange the order of these songs for maximum audience pleasure. Thank you!

I like the list in any order. Only change I can think is maybe drop "The End" and insert "Tennessee Whiskey" Chris Stapleton version so you have something on the current charts on your list.

Oh...and unless you post YT clip afterwards it never happened.

I like Peegoo's list, but end with the rockin'est song: "Whiskey".
So leave the rest and just swap Whiskey to the end.

I'd do this:

4. Last dance with Mary Jane (Am)
5. Have you ever seen the rain (C)
7. Like a rolling stone (C)-Dylan John Mellencamp
2. Simple kind of man (F#m) - Lynyrd Skynyrd
1. Whiskey in the jar (E) - Thin Lizzy
3. The end (D) - Doors
6. I shall be released (A)-Dylan Chrrisie Hynde version

Here's my rationale:

Have you ever seen the rain: it's a classic, super familiar song that everyone has heard at least once, and it has a memorable melody. It puts the crowd at ease right out of the gate.

Simple kind of man: a little less well-known, but its theme of humility lets the crowd know the band is not all attitude.

I shall be released: another tune that is familiar (it's been covered by a lot of artists in several genres), and satisfies those in the crowd with spiritual leanings.

Whiskey in the jar: time to rock the joint; let the crowd know there's some heavy sounds you guys can make.

Last dance with Mary Jane: great time to acknowledge the recent passing of one of the greatest songwriters ever. Tom Petty was (and is) hugely popular.

The end: A slow, dark, simmering tune that the audience will think is your last song. But you have a surprise for them.

Like a rolling stone: Everyone knows this tune and many in the crowd will sing along or dance to it. It's a good set ender.

I'm a huge Dylan fan, but I'd not play two of his songs in a short set of seven songs. I'd replace one with a Beatles tune. If you want a Doors song I'd choose something other than "This Is The End". I like "Riders On The Storm" as a replacement.
