Sooooo .... in other words, none of them?

As much as Pop is my favorite album and I defend it as being an incredibly underrated album, I don't see what the fuss is over MoFo. I always skip that track. So live it didn't change anything for me.

Yes, Miami did come to life live, but I love it as a studio track too. A VERY underrated song.

I'd say Gone and Please. Though I wish they'd do full version of Velvet Dress and Wake Up Dead Man. I think that could really work.

Gone and Please, for sure. Mofo is awesome, yea, but it's more of a "Hey look at us!" song than anything else.

And while it's really only a snippet, I've always LOVED the slow-burn Velvet Dress live.

I agree with this post, especially the part about Mofo. I only disagree about Miami, because I still find the song annoying, live and on album.


Besides the song mentioned, I also liked the accoustic version of Staring At The Sun.

Yes I agree with this a bit... I know it's blasphemy, but I never saw a show, I don't think it's quite that good.

For me it's Miami hands down.

These were the three best live songs from POP. Our friend PhillyFan seems to have hit the proverbial nail on the head.

MoooOOOOOOOOFOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...was the best. Please was very good live, but I have a certain attachment to the album version. Gone was just alright on the Popmart tour (much improved for Elevation and Best Of 1990-2000), while Last Night On Earth were excellent. For the Popmart tour alone, I would have to say the top 3 most improved are:

1. Mofo
2. Last Night On Earth
3. Miami
