    Default Me Wise Magic / Can't Get This Stuff No More

    I know several fans are DYING to hear these songs live, especially MWM. Anyone think these will be added into the set? I'm not sure if there was really a clear answer at the PC.

    Personally, I don't think you can do MWM without Mike, no matter how good Wolf's backing vocals are. CGTSNM seems like it could work live, then again it doesn't really fit the theme of the show/

    What do you all think?

    I think there are much better songs that they could fill those two slots with...

    2 simple reasons why not...

    mwm has too many overdubs. why try to make all that work when u have a catalog everyone knows?

    second- cgtsnm has a talk box, ed hates that shit. think bruck ran the talk box on that song.

    I think it was clear enough...Ed saying that they did not learn the songs is pretty good indicator.

    Dave can't sing MWM live. No possible way, and Mike's not there to help him with the high part he sounded like he was gargling on, anyway.
    I hated when Dave used that gargling voice and tried to pass it off as "having a high note"
    He sounded fine on the rest of the lyrics, though.

    I don't care...I never thought either of those songs were that great. Skip them and do some deep cuts of the GOOD older stuff. Give me some Sinner's Swing before MWM any day.
    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

    I hope they play some of the "amazing" demos from the failed 2000 reunion.

    It's highly doubtful that these two songs will ever be played live, although I'd love it if they did.

    As much as I love "Me Wise Magic", without an effects rack as big as a Winnebago for the vocals (along with a chorus of back-up singers) and perhaps a second (or third) guitarist, I don't see this one leaving the starting gates.

    And if "Can't Get This Stuff No More" bumps anything out of the set to make way for it, well...that would be simply unjustifiable.

    dave said during the press conference that they haven't practiced any of those songs from bov1. So if they decide to play one of them its not going to sound that great.

    I'm not too sure about Wolf tackling the 9/8 measures at the end of the song.

    What kind of BS are you trying to hand us Chef? Edward is more than capable of playing the guitar on everything he writes including MWM. He doesn't anyone else. He can just shred over the bass during the fade solos and nobody will miss the multi-tracked layers going on.
    DAVE cannot sing it live. It took Dave 3 weeks to do the vocal track in a studio, one line at a time.

    I'm not handing you any BS. I like hearing the multi-layered parts of the song, particularly the manner in which they are woven in and out of each other. I'm not really interested in hearing Ed crank up the sustainer and "shred" all over the bass parts, simply to hide the fact that they are not being performed.

    I agree Chef. If I hear that sustainer live I swear to God!!!!! I pray every night that he won't use it!
