I can't believe no one's mentioned "Light up my room" in this thread. What a beautiful song. "When I fall" is a good song too.

The US iTunes music store just released three live concerts from their summer '04 Au Naturale tour. Two of the shows feature new songs "What A Let Down" and "Bull In A China Shop" and one has an amazing version of the oldie "Lilac Girl". God I love this band

Okay, so I'm bored and looking through the band index, figuring I'll look up some of my faves (and likely find that people are dissing the hell out of them, that they're uncool, etc). Then I find this thread!

Just one problem - can't believe that no one has "The Old Apartment" on their lists.

I'd been a casual fan since Gordon, but had never seen them live till about 5 years ago. They played at a weekend festival. There were several bands I was really hyped to see, including one of my favourites, the Foo Fighters. What ended up happening was...BNL blew me away to the extent that my beloved Foos (and the rest of the weekend, quite honestly) were kinda blah in comparison. I left there a HUGE BNL fan.

Anyway, my top 10:

The Old Apartment
Blame it on Me
Shoebox
Break Your Heart
Call and Answer
Too Little Too Late
Falling For the First Time
Thanks That Was Fun
Lovers in a Dangerous Time
Careless
Alcohol

Okay, so that was 11. Sue me.

Fah, you lucky, lucky girl!

One more thing - if you guys don't have their dvd Barelaked Nadies, run out and get it RIGHT THIS SECOND! The special feature audio commentary that they do over all of the videos is fucking hilarious, and easily worth the price of admission. Man, what I wouldn't give to hang out with those guys.

Isn't this a Bruce Cockburn song? Or do they have a different song by the same name?

It was their contribution to a Bruce Cockburn tribute album in '91. Both version are gorgeous.

Other than U2, this is my second most times in concert band... 14-15 times (if not more since 1996). Live in Michigan and as you probably know, these guys are huge here. Though we got robbed of a Christmas Show this year

I think it is because last year's Christmas Show audience SUCKED!

I went to Steve's performance at Borders promoting his Vanity Project CD last year. It was gorgeous. And with that, I must run because I am presently freaking out about something else...

Miro, the weekend festival I was referring to where I first saw them is (sorta) in your neck of the woods - Bayfest, in Sarnia. Did you go to that one?

a very good cover, I love this song they have performed it with Cockburn live too.

*my obligatory Cockburn plugging post* indra gets bonus points for knowing the Cockburn song

I know very little about the BNL except this song

are they releasing anything in actual tangible cd-form anymore? it seems like they've released a shitload of itunes-only stuff, not to mention that barenaked on a stick USB thing.

Nope, though the firs time I saw them was on a radio festival thing, but that was at Pine Knob (now DTE Energy something or another )

Even my mom has seen the Ladies about 10 times now It took her about 5 shows to finally get to hear Break Your Heart. She was so damn happy.

eeeeexcellent.

they hit the umass amherst mullins center in support of the last two albums (and i believe the place sold out for both shows. i almost didn't get tickets during the maroon tour because of it). they need to come back. i like not having to travel far
