> 1. I Can't Explain - This really lights my Who fuse - STILL!
I like it, too, but as an opener, it's old. Put it somewhere else in
> 2. Substitute - There will never be a substitute for this song.
I say drop it. Or play it faster. It lacks energy on my 2004 Forum
CD. The only thing keeping it interesting to me is Roger's fresh
phrasing on certain parts.
> 3. A Legal Matter - I Always Liked this.
Ha! They ain't gonna play this! I know, I know.....this is your
> 4. Happy Jack - Appropriate for kids of the Hummer generation
I agree. But it's actually a difficult song. I could see them botching
> 5. A Quick One - Yeah, This would be GREAT!
Too long. Most of the audience would get bored.
> 6. Boris The Spider - The best JAE tribute I can think of
I think the New Who still isn't ready for "John songs." Still angry
at him, I suppose.
> 7. Our Love Was - This is my current fav.
> 8. Top Gear - Another sonic bulldozer of a song.
Double ha! How about "Coke After Coke?" ;-)
> 9. Tattoo
Maybe. But that'd be a tough one for Roger to hit the high notes on.
> 10. I'm One - Pete and Rabbit alone on this one.
Maybe. I don't know. Pete & Rabbit?
> 11. Sea And Sand - More Easy Vocals High-impact Quadrophenia
Drop it. Insert an abbreviated "Dr. Jimmy."
> 12. Sparks/Amazing Journey/Pinball Wizard - Signature Tommy -
> Gotta have it!
OK! It's your dream!
> 13. We're Not Gonna Take It - We will take this. At least I will!
Plus "See Me, Feel Me?" Too long!
> 14. Baba O'Riley - Gotta Baba, Period, End!
I'm afraid so. But, to be truthful, I'm not bored with this song live.
> 15. Going Mobile - More Pete Vocals - give Roger a BREAK!
Ha! No way! Yuck!
> 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 works.
Yes! It works! It lives!
> 18. Dreaming From The Waist - I can dream, can't I? They can
> pull this off, can't they?
Too Ox-ish, I fear.
> 19. Squeeze Box - Back to the pure fun of the who.
I'll take it! As long as Daltrey doesn't do that speech beforehand
about how the audience has to sing along. That's corny.
> 20. The Kids Are Alright - A nice ending.
Yawn. Drop it.
Christ, how long is this concert? ;-)
> 21. Long Live Rock - Again Pete on vocals.. Quick tempo too.
Yes! A breath of fresh air! A celebratory song!
> 22. Sister Disco - An important milestone statement song
I'll be in danger of soiling my pants if they play "Sister Disco."
> 22. Won't Get Fooled Again - The only acceptable closer IMO.
> 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.
Leaving out that song was a mistake on your part. Even in its abbrev-
iated form, it's a real kick live. Those "Let it breathes" by Daltrey send
shivers down my spine.
