Spinoff: Your Ideal Setlist

Postby sour29 » Thu Sep 21, 2006 7:35 am

Specifically for the 2006 tour. You can either stick to songs they actually have a hope in hell of playing, or go crazy and make a setlist of nothing but Bun Family Players songs. That's up to you. Me, I'm sticking more or less to songs I know there's a chance of playing (with one notable dream song), and due to lack of creativity, will be featured in reverse chronological order and by tracklisting.

Let's make the one rule that you can pick no more than a dozen songs, or be tarred and feathered and forevermore branded a cheater.

My ideal setlist is:

Code: Select all

Pushover
Fire Island, AK
Hindsight
Rich Wife
Seven
The Commander Thinks Aloud
Delicate Hands
Cinnamon
Bride and Bridle
Stupid
Mimi
Carparts


If the El Dubs decide to play this set anytime on the tour, remember that I already have my ticket for October 4th at Lee's Palace in Toronto. :D

-Give Me A Moment
-Pushover
-Sky Is Open
-Carparts
-Mimi
-The Commander Thinks Aloud
-It'll Be A Breeze
-New Girl
-Unsalted Butter
-Fire Island, AK
-Blanket Hog
-Bride And Bridle (acoustic solo)
-Nora

I don't know if TLW play encores or not, but I think those last 2 tracks would make a great finale.

Honest
It'll Be a Breeze
Scent of Lime

<banter about "back to the rock">

Moral Centralia (Harvey Danger Cover)

<wicked banter about Sean selling out for one more shot at fame and being on TRL>

Here are my top 5 picks.

New Girl
Stupid
The Sound of Coming Down (I never let the album leave my CD changer without hearing these three near the end. An epic trilogy, man.)
Carparts
Ultimatum (The whole "coming back out for the encore with an acoustic guitar solo performance" is my ideal)

Rich Wife
Cinnamon
Carparts
Fire Island AK
-Rest of band goes to bathroom
-John solo
Honest
It'll Be a Breeze
-Band returns
Stupid
Mimi
Teaspoon

-everyone exits
-encore-
The Commander Thinks Aloud (begining with just John on piano and the rest of the band joining as the song progresses)
Medicine Cabinet Pirate
The Sound of Coming Down
-Everyone leaves again

-Encore Encore
*joined by NS and HD members*
Blankest Year (Nada Surf)
Meetings with Remarkable Men (Harvey Danger)
New Girl

And obviously this set would be played during the Long Winters/Harvey Danger/Nada Surf "American Power Pop Is Here To Save Your Soul" Tour of the UK.

The LDubs would be on last and members of the other bands would join them to rock out crazy style on the last three songs of the encore. It'd be glorious.

I'm so adding Unsalted Butter and Nora to my setlists. I love those songs, but I thought there was no way they'd play them. <3

That's why it's called Your Ideal Setlist.

Apparently they DO play Nora... look at the sticky subject listing setlists:

Sour:

Right...

so there IS a chance.

Maybe I'm missing something? I was just pointing something out (which you might already have known?) that I thought you might appreciate seeing.

Yes, which is why I added it later. The message was for Burning Bride #7, because in my original post, I stuck to songs I'd like to hear that I knew they were actually playing. When they added Nora and Unsalted Butter, I was filled with an inexplicable warmth and joy, and then added it to my list.
