Oops, I accidently voted from my favourite, ie Electric Co, rather than the song I like the least ie Ocean.

Excuse me while I stop making sense. I'm a tad excited about the Australian tour.

There are no bad songs on boy, but the ocean stands out as being the most uninteresting

Exactly. But I love the Ocean. Oh well, it's gotta go.


Axver, great that you started this but can I make a suggestion to include this in the first post of every round...

PLEASE VOTE FOR YOUR LEAST FAVORITE SONG!!!

something like that.

Agreed.

The Ocean is the least interesting here but is still gorgeous! Definitely not yuck-worthy!

I voted for The Ocean even though I started appreciating it more during this tour. The best non-single song on the Boy album for me is defenitly The Electric Co.

I like the Ocean. A Lot. Shadows and Tall Trees is SNOREVILLE CITY.

To the Nth Degree!!!

Mrs. Brown's washing is always the same???

i don't care about Mrs. Brown's washing.

I'm messing around a bit of course, as Boy is one of my favorite albums of all time, but I find this song to be much less interesting than The Ocean. The middle eight guitar breakdown in SATT is sublime, however.

as for the underrepresentation of POP... i agree forever and ever. What the hell?

That Discotheque was the song of the tour, folks, and you all know I am a herald of the Electric Co and Wild Horses.

The fact that they dropped it after 2 performances shows that they have still not gotten over their distaste for that material. Which bugs me to no end. Because I too feel that Achtung and Pop are their two best records (or at least my 2 favorites)...

When I go to a concert I expect to hear recent music represented. One of the greatest things about going to see a band live is to see how they mix their current music with that of their previous effort. Also interesting is how they reinvent the older stuff.

Example: Vertigo/Elevation really works for me. And the new incarnation of Stuck In A moment is a thousand times better than that of the Elevation Tour.

But I expected more, especially since this is the first tour to follow their second greatest hits album. (Which sort of explains the appearance of The First Time)

Given that Pop is the most recent album besides ATYCLB, and that HTDAAB songs like Love And Peace and Vertigo rock harder than anything on ATYCLB, I was really excited to hear them mix it up with the rockers from POP.

Discotheque
Gone
Staring At The Sun ... all on the best of

Last Night On Earth... shares lyrical themes with COBL...

but they only play D? and only 2 times? WTF.

ISHFWILF needs to go.

GARR!
