So, I was perusing the list of original songs by the band, and the number of times each has been played. I found a few of them quite staggering. There are others that have not been played for obvious reasons (Whale Song and Santa God come to mind). Here is the list (name of song and number of times played live):

Whale Song  0
Santa God  0
Happy When I'm Crying   0
Olympic Platinum   0
Falling Down  1
Hitchhiker  1
Just A Girl  2
Sweet Lew  2
Santa Cruz  2
Last Soldier  2
Strangest Tribe  2
Don't Drive Me  3 (what is this song? is it mislabeled in the list as an original?)
Other Side  3
Bugs  3
In The Moonlight  4
Out of My Mind  4
Sick O' Pussies  5 (again, this is labeled an original-possibly incorrect?)
Undone  5
Driftin'  5
Angel  6
Let Me Sleep   6
Speed of Sound  7
Brother  8
Black Red Yellow  8
Fatal   8
Dead Man  8
Education  9
No Way  12
Hold On  13

that's 29. A honourable mention goes out to Who You Are, which has been played a paltry 44 times, and it was the first single off No Code. 

So, if you wish to play along, which 10 of these would you like to see brought back for the upcoming 11th album tour? Copy and paste the list and italicize and bold your picks.

    Really want Of The Earth (12) and Hard to Imagine (41), though, when it comes to songs played next tour that are rarely played.
    *Edit, I realize I only picked 5.  Those are the only ones on the list that I truly wanted to hear --- the others I either have heard once and the novelty is past, or I don't care to hear at the expense of one of the more commonly played tunes.  (For example, just because I have seen DTE 15-20 times does not mean I would prefer to hear a rare tune to replace.  There is great value, to me, in watching Pearl Jam destroy on songs I love.)

    Don't Drive Me was a song played in 2003.  I think as an intro to MFC.

    I think it would funny if Ed said to the crowd "this next one is a rarity....it's called Just A Girl", with Stone starting into the No Doubt song as a massive troll to the while whalers, and then they rip into Even Flow. 

    full disclosure: I once started a "please play Just A Girl" thread.

    If they played 10 of these at one given show it would rank as the bottom of list of shows attended.  (I would still love the show.)

    Sprinkle them around.  :)

    I think the only way I'd think Whale Song would work is Ed and Jack at Ohana. I'm actually kind of surprised that and Happy have never happened there when both of them have been there.

    It was more of an improv they played a few times.

    Dead man not played since 2007!  There are so many good songs they need to bring back into the set. 
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......
  • Definitely Fatal, Tribe and Let Me Sleep if they tour during winter.

    Leave the rest, and take Of the Earth with 'em.

    last soldier really is a great song. not sure why they don't bust it out. or even release a studio version of it, if they have recorded it.
