One Song You Love/Used To Love You Wished They'd Stop Performing Live

This is any song, cover or original, that you love or used to love and wish they'd retire live. 

one rule: you may NOT answer Even Flow. :lol:

my pick would be RITFW. I have seen the band 4 times, and it's been played every time. It's a great crowd pleaser, I'm just kind of tired of it personally. that being said, that doesn't mean I won't sing along next time I see the band!

    Do The Evolution

    I love Yield... it's probably my favourite album and I used to enjoy DTE, but they play it at every show.   Now it's gotten old.   It's kind of up there with Even Flow and Corduroy now (except I really do love Corduroy).

    Off the top of my head, Given to Fly would have to be my best pick...

    all the songs i truly love i wish they'd play more. they can start with of the girl.

    but to answer the actual question, i'd be fine not hearing yellow ledbetter live again.

    Most of the ones I'd retire I never really loved or even liked very much. RITFW, DTE, Last Kiss, Lukin. Not sure I have one that I used to love and want to see go. Best answer I guess is Just Breathe. I like the song but it almost feels like a waste every time they play it. The rest of the band basically stands around while Ed plays a solo song.

    Only song that comes to mind is I Got Id. Not because its overplayed, but because its one of my favorites in the studio, but just don't like it live nearly as much. In 17 shows I've heard it only once I think. Would be fine if I didn't hear it again.

    Like Jimmy said, the ones I'd be okay with them retiring were never at the top of my list to begin with.
    I dont get the hate for Evenflow or Betterman. Yes, they're overplayed, but they're classics and still fun to see to me. I'd still rather hear those songs than ones I never cared to begin with like "You Are. (or I got Id)"

  • crazy mary - only because the boom solo ruins it for me.  everyone is rocking out - then we all have to hush for the b3 solo?  ugghhh yawn.

    Oh man, my favorite part of the live version is Boom's solo and then duel w/ Mike. Viva la B3! :smiley:

    I agree with RITFW. Enough already.
    With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy. ~ Desiderata

    LOL. Maybe we can debate it over a beer one of these days at a show.

    I submit Got Some or The Fixer. At least they're short songs. Maybe not full-out stop performance them, but at least let them gather dust on a shelf for a good while.

    Pendulum
    ..... I absolutely loved both nights at Fenway last August, but that song to open night 2 was a slight let down for me.... and is the one song I skip when I listen to those two bootlegs.
    ..... wait a second, I never loved Pendulum, sorry, I didn't interpret the prompt correctly.
    I can't recall any song that I love/used to love and now not wanting to hear live at a show.

     Another example :) I disliked "Let the Records Play" after my second listening of that album song as I couldn't not think of the "Jeepers Creepers" children's tune when I heard that song.

    Totally with you on The Fixer. What a stinker. But I actually think Got Some is pretty good live - it offers good crowd-rocking potential - even though I am rabidly anti-BS, lol.

    Betterman ( just numb to it)

    Porch ( usually at the end of the main set, numb to it and would prefer RVM or Blood)

    Rockin ( lost almost all musical integrity over the past many years for me.. played with the lights on with tambo's flying and flubbed lyrics. Just kind of symbolizes the end of the night and me wishing I was hearing a different song. Ledbetter doesn't bother me the same way..)

    There's lots to agree with in this thread...but whoever said I Got Shit, man....the fuck is wrong with you?
    And so you see, I have come to doubt
    All that I once held as true
    I stand alone without beliefs
    The only truth I know is you.
