Hey, I don't know if this thread has been already created or not. I'm sorry if it was, I didn't see it anywhere, and I love this kind of threads.

As you can imagine, you just have to rank the songs from TSSK from best to worst. I'll begin. (If you wanna put the bonus track c'mon, and if you don't want to, it's ok too). Smile

One Day Like This
Grounds For Divorce
The Bones Of You
Weather To Fly
Mirrorball
Starlings
Friend Of Ours
We're Away
The Loneliness Of A Tower Crane Driver
An Audience With The Pope
Some Riot
The Fix

All the songs are very good, but The Fix... I don't know, I have never really listened to it, but I don't really want to...

Weather To Fly
Mirrorball
One Day Like This
Grounds For Divorce
Some Riot
We're Away
Friend Of Ours
The Bones Of You
Starlings
An Audience with the Pope

It'll probably change though.

for me, Bones Of You is the stand out track of the album...

i've heard it that often since that i've bored myself of the rest and couldnt decide between any of them... although id put one day like this at the bottom as it suffers badly from over exposure for me... i'm really *not* looking forward to the newcastle arena date when they play it and all the plastic fans go mental... :-/

If they play it as last song, you could leave the room as it starts up, if you just can't bare that again...thats what I ended up doing the last few gigs of TSSK tour.
I'd personally prefer 'Grace...' brought back, if the forthcoming album hasn't got that formula song for the tour, or to go to arena town on the likes of, maybe? 'Weather to Fly' instead.

just melancholic today... :-) would never leave early, only ever done that at an ian brown gig because he lost the plot vocally, was like an x-factor audition in the end. will grin & bear it! :-)

cracking idea that to finish on grace ("cast of" is my current album of choice)... should get local forum members on stage in fancy dress ala glasto... bounce

Mmm, well, as most people on here already know, Weather to Fly is my absolute favourite, but anyway, here goes:

Weather to Fly
Tower Crane Driver
Friend of Ours
Bones of You
Starlings
Mirrorball
We're Away
Grounds for Divorce
Some Riot
The Fix
One Day Like This
Audience with the Pope

I'd love to see 'Grace' back as the gig-closer as well but I have a feeling that with stadium gigs it's going to be One Day Like This every time.
I did enjoy Scattered Black and Whites though!

Regarding set closers from the material already released, I'm gonna go against the majority and say, if it came between 'Grace' and 'ODLT' it's always gonna be the latter - 'Grace' is great, love it, but it's no 'ODLT'.

However, my IDEAL choice would be 'Forget Myself'.

My preferences are thus:

Friends Of Ours
Some Riot
The Loneliness Of A Tower Crane Driver
Grounds For Divorce
Starlings
Weather To Fly
One Day Like This
Bones Of You
Mirrorball
The Fix
Were Away
Audience With The Pope

And as for the forthcoming shows, I'll put money on the big finish not being "Audience With The Pope"!

I loved Scattered Black and Whites at the end, they did that last tour, 2009?? I thought it was a perfect end to a gig.

How do you guys feel about the gigs when the band play their back catalogue in it's entirty, one night, one album, one venue consecutively?

Suede did it, Lips are doing the Soft Bulletin this year....

I haven't worked out a rank yet, but I'm astonished that AAWTP consistently finishes so poorly. Probably in top 3 for me.

Best to worst:

1. Friend of Ours
2. Weather to Fly
3. The Loneliness of a Tower Crane Driver
4. Mirrorball
5. The Bones of You
6. Some Riot
7. One Day Like This
8. Grounds for Divorce
9. Starlings
10. The Fix
11. An Audience With the Pope

Adore the album, but the last two songs are the only sign that even suggests "filler" - OK, but not as good as Elbow can be.

Starlings would be way up there if it were not for those horn blasts. I get what they mean in a thematic sense, but they ruin the song for me. Beautiful song, lyrically, and musically, otherwise, though.
