And don't be afraid to do something completely outrageous.
So, you showed your penis to the man from the greeting card company.

So, I just read that two shows into the US leg of their current tour, The Cure had already done 48 unique songs.

U2 struggle to play more than 48 unique songs on an ENTIRE TOUR.

Radiohead's been messing with their sets the way I wish U2 would.

Keeping the same group of songs, shifting the order every night, playing a rarity every night.

I've used up all my good advice. In fact, I've lost total confidence in my ability to help people.

I think the ultimate person for varied setlists is Neil Finn. I believe that on Crowded House's current tour, they've played almost every song the Crowdies have ever released, plus some new songs and covers. The Finn Brothers tour in 2005 had serious variety too.

Springsteen does sets well. I got to see songs like Candy's Room at the show I went to.

I still want to see Jungleland or Backstreets live at a Bruce show.

I'm useless.

Yeah, Bruce doing Darkness and Born to Run in their entireties in one show is insane.

Oh yes, Springsteen's sets are amazing as well.

U2, are you taking notes?

I think someone said for the rest of the tour after his organist, Danny Frederici, died, Springsteen played 60+ different songs. I think that was five or six shows, I'm too lazy to look. But I'm beating the horse on this topic now I know. Springsteen's just making me jealous now is all. I just wish U2 would do something exciting. Shake it up a little.

I enjoyed his explanation as to why he did Darkness first.

Or they could take notes from the 1989 version of themselves.

And I see I was the third to mention that, so it just proves how amazing.
