Fantasy Set List
« on: June 07, 2016, 04:50:05 PM »
OK,  with the gigs around the corner, though it might be fun (and maybe get the gaffer thinking ;)) to pick your ideal, and realistic setlist.

"Rules" as follows : set duration 90 minutes (ish) - our imaginary venue has a strict curfew, so you can't to be 2 minutes into 'Milliontown' as you hit the 90 and expect they let you play on.
You can take the song timings from either the album versions or any live recordings, but specify the source of your timing so everyone knows what you're on about.
You should factor in some time for in between song banter (a la Frost, Monkey, A*%$, Trumpet) as no doubt even in a dream set, you'll have some tomfoolery (wouldn't be the same else).
If you want to break the set into a 'main set' and cheeky encore you can.

Alas I'm currently working long hours in Paris, so won't have much chance to submit my own entry until the weekend at the earliest  >:(

Nice idea!  :)

Now, as an old timer ;), I'm in the lucky position of having seen Frost* live 8 times before so my wish list is probably going to be different from those who have never seen them previously. 

Main set:-
The Dividing Line
Falling Satellites (the whole lot!  8))

Black Light Machine

That comes in at 1:40 according to iTunes. 
(Plus the statutory arsing about = 2 hours!  ;D)
Come on, you\'re a lion!

And what if he reads this?

And what if he responds by changing the set?

Mrs G will not be happy

"Frost* @Here_Be_Frost
Bank Holiday weekend - 2 days mixing a Losers track and today programming keyboards. Wife not that impressed."

Be it on your own head.

That said, I'm really not bothered anyway. I'm just getting quite excited

PS anyone reviewing the gigs, can they put spoiler alert on the title so I can avoid it

My dream Frost* setlist: (I would maybe cut off a pinky toe to see this)

Intro (the one they used for PDX)
Black Light Machine (this track actually works as an amazing opener)
No Me No You
Pocket Sun
Towerblock (if humans can actually play this live)
Closer to the Sun
Raging Against
Nice Day for it
Dividing Line
Falling Down
Dear Dead Days

That should be just under 90. Then again I'd be happy to see them play ANYTHING. Even if it was an hour and a half of just Snowman on the Tenori-On I'd be more than happy.
I've seen paupers as kings,
puppets on strings
dance for the children who stare
you must have seen them everywhere

This is impossible

I've come up with

First Day
Falling Down
Lights Out
Nice Day For It...
Last Day.

Encore: The Dividing Line

But that brings me 2 mins over budget, and excludes such classics as: Pocket Sun (new version), The Other Me, Saline and Jem's favourite Dear Dead Days. And woe betide them if they actually want to speak during this hypothetical gig.

It's a good job they're deciding the setlist for us!
