Request Lines are Now Open
I make no guarantees, but I do think it's worth asking all of you guys, since you're clearly the ones who have been waiting around the longest.

Now that we're doing what little touring we can do, I'm wondering, what is the ONE SONG that you would be most chagrined if we didn't play when you came all the way out to see us play live?

Better said: You can request one song (and ONLY ONE). What song do you choose?

Again, no guarantees, but don't say I never asked you which song you want us to play.

Love,
Sean

PS
Disclaimer: You would have to show us incontrovertible evidence that a life could be saved before we'd even consider playing "Private Helicopter." All else is fair game.

Why do you hate that song so? It's awesome.

Seeing as I'll never see you unless you tour the UK my opinion is invalid BUT... Hmm

Whilst I could die happy if I heard My Human Interactions live I'd guess you only play released stuff . Problems and Bigger Ones, Pike St, Same as Being In Love.. Eeeh, so many brilliant songs. But the one I would probably be MOST annoyed at not hearing live -

Terminal Annex

Good gravy...

ok if I was to just pick ONE I would say Defrocked because I don't think I've ever heard it live

but other songs I would highly approve but aren't as common:

Cold Snap, Loyalty Bldg., Woolly Muffler, Why I'm Lonely, and Ignore Me

but seriously, I would stay for every song you guys ever wrote, even Private Helicopter - you guys should at least play the song ONCE! who knows when you'll play it again...

all it does is rain, but it never rains enough to cool my fever.

I'll say "War Buddies" because I assume someone else will say "Why I'm Lonely."

Glad Georgia and Florida are on the schedule, on the off chance I'm down there instead of up here.

You make a statement like this, and you're going to get pelted with "Flagpole" and "Save it for Later" requests.
I wanna hear "Mainline" brought back! And "Old Hat", "The Stroke", and "Ballad of the Tragic Hero". Essentially, some obscure stuff. I imagine "Little Round Mirrors" would be a lock considering it's on LbL, but I still want to hear that.

Oh, and if I fall at the venue and get hurt, I'll request PH.

My first thought was Radio Silence, but I think I'm going to have to say Defrocked instead.

I ain't afraid of no rolly-coaster.

can i ask why hd refuses to play private helicopter? i mean, it broke billboard top 500, had a video and everything. and personally, it made me listen to the rest of merrymakers. i love that song

but ill vote for 'why im lonely' since i know a lot of people will vote for pike st/park etc.

dude, its like that and has been like that with every request, poll, or question. one time on the old boards i asked a question specifically asking for ONE SONG ONLY and some girl named every song from every album at the time, no lie.

its like, 'what the fuck?'

I'll be that guy. "Why I'm Lonely".

I took this to be more of a "What one song would you request for your hometown" thread than a "You guys get to choose HD's whole setlist for the entire tour" sort of thing. Maye I'm wrong, though.

At any rate:
