Post Current Songlist
StEx has gone through several changes over the years. Some I love, other... not so much.

I'm interested in what the current songlist for the show is. I only saw the show in 1990 on the US/Canada tour.

Anyone?

Andy.

From the NZ tour website:

Act I
Rolling Stock
Rusty, Can't be Serious
A Whole Lot of Locomotion
He'll Whistle at Me
Freight
AC/DC
Pumping Iron
Hitching and Switching
Crazy
Pearl, You've Been Honoured
Make Up My Heart
Poppa's Blues
Laughing Stock
Starlight Express


Act II
The Rap
Pearl Whirl
UNCOUPLED
Dinah, You're Honoured
Terrorising Rusty
Right Time, Right Place
Rusty and Dustin
Dinah's Disconection
One Rock 'n' Roll Too Many
Only He
Light at the End of the Tunnel

How they can get the to run smoothly, I have no idea.

Where are "The Races" and "I Am The Starlight" in the list?

Andy.

The New Zealand tour's finished now. The only current production is German.

I don't think "running smoothly" is a priority at all any more, or telling a story, or making sense! However, the missing material -


Act I
Rolling Stock
Rusty, Can't be Serious
A Whole Lot of Locomotion
He'll Whistle at Me
Freight
AC/DC
Pumping Iron
Hitching and Switching
Crazy
Pearl, You've Been Honoured
Make Up My Heart
*Race - Heat 1*
Poppa's Blues
*Race - Heat 2*
Laughing Stock
Starlight Express


Act II
The Rap
Pearl Whirl
UNCOUPLED
Dinah, You're Honoured
*Race - Uphill Final*
Terrorising Rusty
Right Place, Right Time
*I Am The Starlight*
Rusty and Dustin
Dinah's Disconnection
*Race - Downhill Final*
One Rock 'n' Roll Too Many
Only He
Light at the End of the Tunnel

It's an odd list - Pearl Whirl, Dinah's Disco etc etc, those really aren't songs! They're the little recit pieces that move the plot along but not anything you'd remember after seeing the show.

But Dinah's Disco is great.

"He lacks the apparatus" has to be the best line in the show.

Thanks. Are there any cast albums with the complete list?

Andy.

My reviews of the available recordings. The only complete recording is the 1989 German cast recording, which is fab but very unlike the show now.
