My Bucket List

These are the songs I most want to hear live someday. Some are songs I really love. Some are songs I want to hear to complete a long held goal of hearing all of the songs on the Dial-A-Song collection live. Some I still hope are likely if I wait long enough. Some I fully admit are highly unlikely. I only included songs that have already been played at least once, to maintain some element of reasonableness. Wish me luck!

For the record, there actually aren't that many songs that TMBG have played live that I haven't yet heard. Not counting the venue songs, various intros, Stump the Band and Spin the Dial covers, and a few other pieces of miscellany, this is the remaining list of what's been played that I haven't heard. Basically, I need a John Henry show and a Mink Car show (EDIT: I've now seen at least a partial Mink Car show), with a few things from The Spine and Long Tall Weekend thrown in.

And finally, a bonus note for these two songs, which I probably saw at my first show but I will never know because there is no recorded setlist for it and I don't remember!
