In anticipation of the up-coming shows on the East coast,
I am pining away at my dream set list.
Here it goes.
1. I Can't Explain - This really lights my Who fuse - STILL!
2. Substitute - There will never be a substitute for this
3. A Legal Matter - I Always Liked this.
4. Happy Jack - Appropriate for kids of the Hummer generation
5. A Quick One - Yeah, This would be GREAT!
6. Boris The Spider - The best JAE tribute I can think of
Also a chance for Pino cut loose.
7. Our Love Was - This is my current fav. Zak could go nuts
on the ride cymbal (Is that right Jon?)
8. Top Gear - Another sonic bulldozer of a song.
9. Tattoo - Like Our Love Was, Pete can showcase his
vocals here. It's also appropriate for the
Tattoo generation - not that there's
10. I'm One - Pete and Rabbit alone on this one.
11. Sea And Sand - More Easy Vocals High-impact Quadrophenia
12. Sparks/Amazing Journey/Pinball Wizard - Signature Tommy - Gotta
13. We're Not Gonna Take It - We will take this. At least I will!
14. Baba O'Riley - Gotta Baba, Period, End!
15. Going Mobile - More Pete Vocals - give Roger a BREAK!
16. Naked Eye - Imagine It in your mind's eye. I know you can.
17. Real Good Looking Boy - After hearing this recorded and live - It
18. Dreaming From The Waist - I can dream, can't I? They can pull this off,
19. Squeeze Box - Back to the pure fun of the who. No heavy
subject matter here.
20. The Kids Are Alright - A nice ending. An affirmation of sorts.
21. Long Live Rock - Again Pete on vocals.. Quick tempo too.
22. Sister Disco - An important milestone statement song - sort
of an "We've survived this rubbish too!"
22. Won't Get Fooled Again - The only acceptable closer IMO.
There you have it. Notice that many standards have been kept off.
I also kept Old Red Wine off because I'm still not used to this song, and it
brings me down in an uncomfortable way. Don't get me wrong, I often
embrace the melancholy, but this one's not working for me yet.
