    Default What decemberists song...

    ...you hope they play so you can sing-a-long with?

    I want to hear "angel won't you call me" and "sunshine".

    I saw The Decemberists in Glasgow on Sunday night. Best gig i've been to so far this year. They are brilliant live. Here's what they played in no particular order...

    The Crane Wife

    Crane Wife 3
    The Island
    O Valencia
    Yankee Bayonet
    Summersong
    Shankill Butchers
    Crane Wife 1 (no 2 which was strange)
    Sons and Daughters, where they were joined on stage by the actual band.

    Picaresque

    We Both Go Down Together
    Eli, the Barrow Boy (encore)
    16 Military Wives

    Her Majesty, The Decemberists

    Billy Liar
    Chimbley Sweep (encore)

    Castaways and Cutouts

    Odalisque

    I've seen the Decemberists a many of times. I reallllly hope they will just do a long kick ass version of The Tain (doubtful). Mariner's Revenge Song is also insanely good... they played it at the end of their Fall 2005 tour in Portland, most energetic performance I've ever seen.

    the mariner's revenge song of course... they closed w/ that the last (and only) time i saw 'em. it worked b/c we had have plenty of space for everyone to crouch down on the ground and wave their hands and arms like a bunch of maniacs ... not sure how that would work at coachella. hmm.

    i'd also like to see a cautionary song, los angeles i'm yours, crane wife 1 + 3 and o valencia.

    A couple songs I've yet to hear live that I would love to hear at Coachella

    Shiny
    Summersong
    Yankee Bayonet
    The Tain would be pretty awesome as well.

    But pretty much anything by them will be great.

    this is easily the worst example of the decemberists... awfully repetitive lyrics and musically boring.

    It was a perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect, the perfect crime.

    What the fuck was Colin thinking... and the rest of the band for not standing in.

    I actually hadn't heard of them prior to Coachella -- now they're one of the bands I'm most looking forward to.

    Definently not the best example of Colin's lyrical apt, but I still like the song nonetheless. It's probably the most diverse song on the Crane Wife, so what it loses in lyrical quality it makes up in "hmm, now that's different".

    I like "Grace Cathedral Hill" - so there!

    And i like the fact that Chris Funk looks like James Belushi dressed as a pirate (if that makes any sense).
