Pick one song from each album to hear live (30 Year Tour dreaming!)
#1
Hey all!  Anyone still here??  I'm looking to flush out as many of you as I can with a (hopefully) fun question for you to ponder...  If you read this you have to respond with your list Wink

As we know, T? are touring this year for their 30th anniversary.  Whilst I don't believe they've given any clue as to what these shows entail, I'm sure most of us are hoping for a set spanning their entire career with some surprises thrown in.  That got me thinking about a Cure gig I went to years ago, when they played one song off each album.  If T? did similar, what would you want to hear?  Some suggested rules first of all, though this is for fun so if you wish to ignore do so...

1. Albums are defined by the Wiki page disography (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Therapy%3F), so does not include live, compilations, EPs, the PD / Nurse merger.  Hopefully none of you are sneaky enough to alter the page to get more songs in!
2. You can pick one song from each album
3. You can pick one song from all compilations, but this should not be a song that is on a full album.  For example, you can pick Fat Camp from SMFTTYP but not Screamager as that is already on Troublegum
4. You are allowed four wild card picks, for those songs that you really love but just came up short on the other categories

That's it!  Once complete you'll have 20 songs for your list.  How you choose is up to you.  It could be your favourites, or songs you'd love to hear live.  Hope you enjoy, and with a bit of luck T? may get a few ideas!

Here's my list:

Babyteeth                                    Innocent X
Pleasure Death                             Potato Junkie
Nurse                                          Accelerator

I'm off to London.  Dragging my wife along to her first t? gig!  I was hoping to go to Belfast but that hasn’t been announced yet, so we may do another when that is finally out there!

How about yourself?

Manchester or London, depending on how flush I'm feeling!  If I can afford it I'd love to do an Irish date too but I'm looking to move house this year so may be mortgaged out of any travelling Sad 

Is your wife a fan of the band or is she attending just for your sake? Wink

Hopefully she'll be a fan by the time we go.  I've got her in training Big Grin  I think she'll love the Troublegum era stuff, but then again who wouldn't.  She also really wants to see Giants Causeway so that's the Belfast excuse (that and getting away from the kids for a few days!)

Good luck with the move!

@gb199 I went to the Giants Causeway a few months ago, it was absolutely incredible! Definitely a good reason to visit Big Grin

20 songs are too few, they usually play more songs when they do a headline set. Anyways:

Babyteeth - Meat Abstract
Pleasure Death - Skinning Pit
Nurse - Disgracelands
Troublegum - Brainsaw
Infernal Love - Epilepsy
Semi Detached - Black Eye Purple Sky
Suicide Pact - Little Tongues First
Shameless - Dance
High Anxiety - If It Kills Me
NANE - Rise Up
OCFA - Private Nobody
Crooked Timber - Crooked Timber
ABCOL - Before You...
Disquiet - Vulgar Display Of Powder
Cleave - I Stand Alone
B-Side - Suing God
WC1 - Fat Camp
WC2 - Dark Naughty Steps
WC3 - Totally Random Man
WC4 - Speedball

Of course I don't have any hope that they will play a setlist like that, they said it'll be all the usual live staples, the hits, plus a couple of deep cuts. Since they're not touring a new album, they have plenty of space in their setlist to include less played songs.

p.s. I'll go to the Brussels gig, will any other womble attend?

Getting a nice little mix of suggestions here. Keep 'em coming all!

Biggest surprise for me is 3 votes for Fat Camp - I thought I'd be the only one who would want to here that! Lots of love for Sprung & Clowns Galore as well
