From There To Here; From Here To There


#1

I’m pretty obsessed with this Cure setlist:

https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/the-cure/2018/royal-festival-hall-london-england-63ea2a1f.html

A chronological run through their back catalogue, then back again, with two songs ultimately played from each album.

Of course I’ve been doing the same with some other favourites. Imagining how boss it would be if other bands did retrospective live deep dives.

And of course, I started with Radiohead.

Here’s what I’d like to see from a Radiohead From Here To There show. The Cure played a couple of unreleased songs in the middle, which I wasn’t able to replicate, so instead I put in a couple of their unattached songs. It would be a VERY nice show:

You
Black Star
Subterranean Homesick Alien
Kid A
Dollars & Cents
Sail To The Moon
Nude
Give Up The Ghost
True Love Waits
These Are My Twisted Words
Supercollider
The Numbers
Little By Little
Reckoner
Backdrifts
I Might Be Wrong
How To Disappear Completely
The Tourist
Planet Telex
Blow Out

Thanks for reading!

I really hope this thread takes off, apologies in advance since I know I’m going to end up abusing it (and losing my mind trying to figure out the Corgan show).

I’ll start off with Greg Dulli of The Afghan Whigs and The Twilight Singers. Not necessarily always my favorite songs but the ones I’d be most excited to hear live:

Hey Cuz
Turn on the Water
Be Sweet
My Enemy
Uptown Again
The Twilite Kid
Teenage Wristband
Real Love
There’s Been An Accident
Waves
Royal Cream / I Am Fire **
Arabian Heights
Copernicus
Matamoros
The Beginning of the End
Forty Dollars
Please Stay (Once You Go Away)
Feathers
Into the Street
Neglekted
Bulletproof
Debonair
Miles Iz Ded
White Trash Party

**These should count as one song

Excellent. After that you pretty much lost me, I’m afraid.

It’s an interesting idea. There’s probably really good mileage from a Manics fan’s choices for this.

Oh I did a Manics one! I thought that, given they pretty much play all of their big singles at every single show they do, a really interesting approach would be to avoid singles almost entirely.

This is what I came up with - it features two singles that I know of, one of which they seldom play anymore, the other just happens to be the best song on the album:

Nat West-Barclays-Midlands-Lloyds
Sleepflower
Yes
Enola/Alone
Ready For Drowning
Intravenous Agnostic
I Live To Fall Asleep
Rendition
Jackie Collins Existential Question Time
The Future Has Been Here Forever
Manorbier
Futurology
People Give In
Liverpool Revisited
Walk Me To The Bridge
(I Miss The) Tokyo Skyline
A Billion Balconies Facing The Sun
Virginia State Epileptic Colony
Underdogs
1985
Dead Martyrs
The Everlasting
Elvis Impersonator: Blackpool Promenade
Die In The Summertime
Gold Against The Soul
Condemned to Rock’n’Roll

I like it because it ends with three comparatively intense songs, whereas their shows usually end with big positive singalongs.
