Make your own Retrospectives III

Post by 1001001 » Mon Feb 23, 2004 3:07 pm

Using the same theory that Neil Peart used on the first two, I went through
the remaining albums and picked out all the songs that was played in concert.

I nixed out some of the one-time played songs from the past tours
("Virtuality", etc.). After getting it down to three songs per album (as
with RETRO.. I & II), I then charted each songs position in the set list, on
every tour since it's debut.

From there, it was just placing the songs in the order of song position.
There was a few more little things that went into this (like what if two
songs had the same position), but it all came out. "Scars" and "Ceiling
Unlimited" both were played as the 16th song on their respective tours.
Since "Scars" came out first, it came before "Ceiling Unlimited". These were the only two songs that were like that. Everything else fell into place.

Dreamline
Stick It Out
Driven
Roll The Bones
Earthshine
Animate
Bravado
Superconductor
Show Don't Tell
One Little Victory
Test For Echo
Scars
Ceiling Unlimited
Resist
Leave That Thing Alone

Here is my working chart. The numbers after the titles are the song
positions, as taken from the Power Windows website. Yes, there are some
songs not listed, but I didn't have any intention of putting them on this
compilation.

PRESTO
Superconductor 8 / 17
Show Don't Tell 9 / 15
The Pass 10 / 12 / 7
Scars 16

ROLL THE BONES
Dreamline 6 / 1 / 18
Bravado 7 / 12 / 8
Roll The Bones 8 / 7 / 18 / 4

COUNTERPARTS
Cold Fire 4
Nobody's Hero 6 / 12
Animate 8 / 6
Stick It Out 9 / 2
Leave That Thing Alone 16 / 20

TEST FOR ECHO
Driven 3 / 15
Half The World 4
Test For Echo 15
Resist 19 / 21

VAPOR TRAILS
Earthshine 5
One Little Victory 14
Ceiling Unlimited 16


-------------------

So, if you were to make your own Retospectives III, which songs would you pick, and what would be the set list?

But Binary! That means we would have to THINK! :shock: There are drummers here. Thinking is something they aren't allowed to do (well, okay KealMWithABrain and Neil Peart are allowed to, but no others! :wink:)

Hey 1001001!
Firstly, welcome aboard. Second, give me a chance to lift the lid on the top of my head and let some of the smoke clear away and I'll get right back to you with a reply. Groovy system, btw. Good to see another Ohioan with more on his mind than "Burger King"! :lol: :? :wink:

(Man, Burger King sounds pretty good, now that I mention it :D )

Burger King? Never liked the stuff after living in Gresham, Oregon for a time. The BK there always smelt of old, stale, dirty washwater, and that smell is now permanently associated with all BKs.

I could go for an In-n-Out, though!
