Oh Boy, bump this up.
Anyway they finally came to Finland past week (yay!), but I was out of the country (boo!) so I'm still waiting for an opportune time to go and see them.
I'm on exchange studies in Poland, and guess which country they didn't go to in Europe....
And they only went to Germany in Hannover which is a bitch to get to from here, and they were in Prague the same day as I had an exam in the evening. Great timing
Anyways during the sobbing I had here on the 15th, I made my own compilation album of my favorites. First I'll say I haven't yet listened to all of their songs, both the compilation albums (Remains+Self-Titled) are still waiting home in Finland, as I just didn't have time to listen to them before I came here.
The main goal was to make it 60 minutes + what is left of the last song. This list is a little short to allow for some more songs to arrive from the two albums I've yet to listen to.
So this is the list that I came up with. I tried to mix and match the songs so that they work well with both the preceding and succeeding songs:
1. Time to Waste
2. This Could be Love
3. Madam Me
4. Hell Yes
6. She Lied to the FBI
7. All on Black
8. I Found Away
10. We've Had Enough
11. Mr. Chainsaw
12. Mercy Me
13. Fatally Yours
15. Private Eye
16. As You Were
17. Lead Poisoning
18. Blue in the Face
Total time: 58:11
All in all:
6/18 Good Mourning
3/18 From Here to Infirmary
2/18 Maybe I'll Catch Fire, Crimson
1/18 Goddamnit, Agony & Irony, This Addiction, My Shame is True, Remains (I have Hell Yes as a b-side on my FHTI album)
What I found interesting when compiling this list was the lack of Dan's songs. I knew I was more a Skiba-man, but this kind of separation was something I didn't imagine. Only Emma and parts of Mercy Me are sung by Dan. These 18 were cut down from 29 songs I first put on the list and one by one I had to drop songs. The last two (Clavicle and Blue Carolina) were agonizing to drop.
Hopefully this can spark some conversation here. This thread has been very quiet lately.
