Some set openers establish a tone for the evening unlike others. For my money a solid Bertha set opener is a sure sign of good things to come.
A quick search suggests that the Bertha > Good Lovin’ combo first emerged in 1977, so this pairing was still pretty new here. If my digging is correct this was the sixth time they put these two songs together in this way. It was a winning combo as far as I’m concerned, but if you ask me Bertha is really the stronger of the two songs, and the reason why I’m focusing solely on Bertha here.
Associating songs with elements of daily life is something that just happens with me and that I can’t really control. I’ve gotten into golf more in the past few years and the Big Bertha driver is one that has drawn one such association. Put me in the Happy Gilmore school of golf; I think it’d be great with a bit more noise, and Bertha soundtrack would sit just fine with me.
