All very nice songs so far, nothing that floors me, but that will change with Electioneering. Kickass.

Here comes the end of "Unne..." This is going to sound great going into "Electioneering." Nice.

I saw that earlier, too. Nice work, indeed.

I find I don't much either, but that's mainly due to the gig I saw being so good that the studio material just seems markedly inferior even all these months later. I'd love a few live albums of their stuff.
No problem.

I've not heard much about them live, but hey, they're an epic band, why wouldn't they be epic live?

It's full-on Ben breaking Elaine out of her wedding-type of music.
Yeah, I wasn't sure how that one worked. Luckily, they're both good enough tracks that it's not a big deal.

Just on paper, PFan, I'm pretty sure I'll enjoy this list more than last time.

My thoughts exactly.

And he can clone people, as we learned in The Prestige.

Originally, without thinking about it much, I had Electioneering and Teenage Wildlife swapped. Then I noticed it worked much better this way.

They are so fucking intense live. Munaf Rayani (who I was in front of) has about as much energy in him as five War Tour Bonos. He's insane. He plays the start of First Breath After Coma with a pen, and there was another part where he taped his guitar to the stage. And all the songs segue together live, it was just 90 minutes of glorious, epic music.

TESLAAA!

If I ever make a movie and Bowie is still alive, mark my words, he will have a part. The only thing he will have to do is show up and fuck up the main character's shit.

Pretty good segue into Electioneering. It was a little abrupt, but the greatness of the song makes up for it instantly.

And I was surprised by your reaction to my last one, so that's good.

I'm pleased with this one. Especially glad that I got it up much closer to the limit, and none of it being filler.

PFan, nice to see one of only two Radiohead songs I like in your list. Electioneering is a cool song.

It's got the jangly guitars though, almost sounded like a breather, then right back to rocking the fuck out.

Segue into "Teenage Wildlife" sounded good - one of my 10 favorite Bowie tracks. Probably the closest he's gotten to recreating the epic awesome of "Heroes."

I would pay to just see that.

My girl friend who's going to college next year makes fun of my Bowie affection on a regular basis. Not that I care.
