Of course, how could I forget about that one :P . I do have a copy somewhere of Dave and Dan TRYING to play that live on the radio. I think they managed about 20 seconds and gave up (they couldn't find the right key or something). It was from a live studio radio interview for Candy From A Stranger and some audience members requested it.

Judging by the setlists I've seen, it never seemd to be a concert mainstay even when it was on the radio a lot. I'm in the Freak Accident/Directions fan club as well. All the King's Friends, Be On Your Way, Easy Street, yeah I'd love to hear those too.
Oooooooh, yes. Be On Your Way would be indescribably awesome.

I have to admit, Can't Even Tell wouldn't even make my top 50. Just goes to show how subjective everything is.

Even writing "Easy Street" on a piece of paper and sticking that on the stage in front of Dave's mic six years ago didn't work, did it Tim? :)

In addition to their regular set list, it sure would be fun to hear them do an entire album live, esp. And the Horse they Rode In On, Hang Time or While You Were Out.

As for individual songs: Be On Your Way and Freaks would definitely be on my list, along with Twiddly Dee, Easy Street, Tied to the Tracks, Lone Rider, Heavy Rotation, Masquerade, All the King's Friends, Whoa!, Ain't That Tough, Marionette, Stranger, Passing Sad Daydream, and the list goes on...

A few of these I've seen them play way back in the day, but to see them play any of these songs now would be incredible.

Speaking of, I saw them play in Minneapolis on New Years Eve in 1990 - totally amazing show. The best part to me was when they played All the King's Friends: in the middle (I believe it was right after they break it down with "Remarkably incredible, incredibly forgettable...") they switch to Whoa! and then picked it right up again with "Out of luck, out of space, out of time, out of place..." Oh my god, it truly was one of the best live shows i've ever seen to this day. I will never forget it. Was anyone else reading this at that show?

Lovin' these posts and this site in general - thanks to all involved for getting this up and happenin'! :D

i suck at this game.

all of these "which one" questions and i keep thinking "well here's a list.."

songs i've never heard them do live, that i love.....because of course i can't pick one....

p-9
twiddly dee
easy street
nice guys dont get paid
crashing down
no mans land

y'know, all this talking about music keeps making me want to go haul it all out. i really havent listened to soul asylum since i saw them last may.
someone sent me 14 bootlegs while i was gone, they got to me a few days after i got back, and i've only listened to one or two of them and then only to skip through and see what was on them.
and since i've been in new orleans i havent listened to them on my own. sometimes someone will put 'em in in the car, but that's what's up with that. i'm kind of feeling a little deprived seeing all these song lists :)

Did you catch the Grand Champeen SA covers show in MPLS a year or two ago where they played that? It was so cool seeing them play all the classic SA songs, but when they busted into James at 16, and even got the song ordering right I was quite impressed.

yeah I was at that one, at the Hyatt downtown (except it was in 1991 though, not '90). That was an awesome show! Even have a bootleg recording of that too! Kind of a crappy venue though (IMO, too much cement around you), but that's besides the point. That midnight medley was really cool too!

All the Kings Friends is one they can pull back out of the closet any time their ready..... :)
