    I've seen all the most commonest.
    And I've seen the first Crown of Thorns, Can't Help Falling in Love, Timeless Melody, Mankind (which isn't the rarest, but since Stone sings lead, I'm including it).

    3 shows.

    Most common I've not seen: Animal (386)
    Least common: Swallowed Whole (10) - though I suppose, being a recent song, doesn't really count. 'Older' non cover - All Night (24). Cover - Rain (5).

    7 shows. Most common not heard Faithful maybe? Least common Of the Earth, All Those Yesterdays, Down, Ghost, Parachutes (which I hate) Oceans, Alone, Don't Gimme No Lip, and, given the fact that is has only been played in around 10% of the shows despite being one of their first songs, I consider it a lucky strike to have heard Breath twice in only 7 shows, my favorite song of all time.

    YAY Milwaukee!! Same here. Also caught Bugs (2) at Wrigley, along with Hold On (11) at that time and one of my favorite songs, All the Way (2), I want to count Setting Forth even though it's not super rare just because I'm 2/2 with it and love the song, and Chloe/Crown.

    Most common that I haven't seen are Daughter, Better Man, then Animal. I might completely lose my S when I get Animal live.

    I don't know for the most common I haven't heard yet, but the rarest was Let Me Sleep.

    Nine shows total: Toronto '00, Toronto '03, Montreal '03, Boston 1 '04, London '05, Toronto '05, Toronto '06 x2, Toronto '09.

    The years are are all blurring together but going strictly from memory, I don't think I have seen "Porch" done by the full band (518 plays). If I'm wrong about that, the next "most common" song I haven't seen personally would be "State Of Love And Trust" (358 plays).

    Not including pre-sets, improvs, tags or soundchecks, the least common song I've seen is "Black Red Yellow" (7 plays).

    Not seeing "Daughter" or "Betterman" sounds crazy.

    Then again, we didn't get those songs or Jeremy in Columbus 2010... that show was also what I dub the "Oh..BTW, here's a song off No Code before we forget to play something from all our records" show.

    Columbus certainly wasn't a Moline or Milwaukee or even a Wrigley, but back in the day, a few people were certainly disappointed to miss it... (you can read more about people who were bummed on the official setlist thread.)

    Animal(371 plays)

    Let Me Sleep(3 plays)
    Technically Moline(1 play) but the chances of them ever playing that again are slim to none.

    You never really had to begin with.


    Sometimes it's not the song that makes you emotional it's the people and things that come to your mind when you hear it.

    Yup. I'd put "Moline" into the improv category.

    I'd say Strangest Tribe makes up for those three, but you will get Ghost sooner or later...even if it means going to every show they announce.

    MFC is the highest ranking song in terms of how many times it has been played that I have yet to see. It isn't that high on my whishlist. Garden, Grievance and Present tense on the other hand are only a little lower than MFC and those are the ones I would really like to see.

    MFC PJ Original 1998-02-20 2014-10-20 154 Yield
    Grievance PJ Original 2000-05-10 2013-10-29 141 Binaural
    Garden PJ Original 1991-02-07 2014-10-17 141 Ten
    Present Tense PJ Original 1996-09-14 2014-10-22 126 No Code

    Getting No woman, no cry as an intro to Better man at my first show was pretty special. Especially since it has only been done twice.
    Getting Bugs as an intro to again Better man got me really excited after it had been played in Philly and only once after the Ziggo dome.
    Better things has only been played twice and it sounded nice as is the case on the bootleg.
    The fact that I got to see Brother is great, but I am really glade that I got to see Of the earth. Hold on is another one I am very happy to have seen live.
    While checking the list I noticed Sleeping by myself has only been played eight times. I realized that I have actually seen 25% of the times it has been played.

    I'd LOVE some MFC, but only with a nice and long Untitled intro.

  • I'd LOVE some MFC, but only with a nice and long Untitled intro.

    Oh don't get me wrong getting MFC with or without (preferable with) Untitled would be very nice, but I would lose it if/when they would start Garden, or Present tense. And I would sing the **** out of Grievance

    Rare-ish song I've heard most: Crown of thorns, 3x, including Vegas :)
    Michael in Los Angeles
    First Show was 1995
    I've lost count of how many afterwards.
    Memorable funny show moments: The Halloween show with the whole band dressed as The Villiage People including Mike in assless chaps doing Yellow Ledbetter; Ed forgetting the words to "Betterman" in Vegas.

  • As much as I love Santa Cruz, I'd be a bit scared to hear it live. I wouldn't think it would be one that would be as good-sounding live as in studio...with that said, I wouldn't mind hearing it live.
