Best Live Song Of The Decade?

Which track from the last 3 albums do you think worked best on tour?

Quite a difficult decision in some ways because I'm not sure any song has really broken out of the box and been a revelation in quite the same way that Bad, Streets or Please were.

City of Blinding Lights has to be up there as does Vertigo I suppose, but for me it has to be Kite. It worked brilliantly on Elevation and the Vertigo versions were just stunning.

BREATHE

Album version just doesn't quite do the song justice.

I know the song doesn't seem to be the greatest crowd pleaser in the world but to me it's the song that SOUNDS the best live. And if there were 60,000 of me in each stadium show when they are playing that song, the place would be going crazy

Well, my favorite song, Beautiful Day, translated pretty well in concert -- the goal is soul!

^ I won't kill you, I'll agree with you. GOYB has been amazing live, and NLOTH. I also vote Vertigo for sure, and GOYB had that same great energy at the shows. Beautiful Day is on my list too. And I think Elevation might just make the list too.

#1 Vertigo

I'm also going to vote for an underdog with No Line.

I think it's vastly under-rated. Pure live euphoria for me. It's the one song in the 360 set that stands out as 4 guys just rocking their roots. They look like 4 teenagers in a club in 1979 when they do that one.

Hi devilshoes!

I guess it has to be COBL, doesn't it? either that or Beautiful Day, Vertigo or NLOTH, oh and Magnificent as well. I still think FEZ-being born would have been incredible live...

Yeah I totally agree. I was so worried they were going to drop it before I saw the tour! It was a highlight of the show and so made my list for sure.
