Well, the December season is behind us and it is still a few more weeks before Cleveland. The numbers of songlists and kutcheri reports/reviews have thinned down considerably, both in North America and South India.
On this very section of the forum, there are threads on what one's favourite songs are (starting with a certain letter) and that sequence has reached close to the middle of the alphabet. The idea behind this thread is similar in spirit, but closer to book cricket and fantasy football. I invite people to post their ideal song lists from an ideal kutcheri. Post several lists, if you can't exhaust all your favourites.
Of course there are many caveats to this. A good songlist depends on who is singing, where the concert is being held/heard, time constraints etc. But let us indulge ourselves in this exercise making as many assumptions as we like. It is fantasy after all. Feel free to post anything as long as the message is positive
So, to kick things off. Here is my ultimate songlist...... Take one.
