(really, i think i was merely asking an innocent question. i was just trying to seek a conversation there, discussion about those different lists - nothing more.
i'm sorry, i don't know what your problem is. :?)

Okay - so here's something I've thought might be cool (it might suck too)...

At the end of A Forest, as Simon is playing out the final notes, have him go into the intro for Crazy Train by Ozzy Osbourne.  The band wouldn't necessarily need to cover the whole song, but at least the grinding guitar riff at the beginning of Crazy Train would be fun to hear, especially with Porl tearing it out.

Again, it might suck, but I think it might be cool too...

Any thoughts?

...
and that's why i think playing albums in full should be used only on special occasions, when the artists is really trying to point out something to the listener.
I think the same and The Cure adapted successfully this idea to transport
a specific mood over the whole evening.That's why I've been focused mainly
on Wish/WMS/The Cure/4:13 Dream to create my list,though The Top is my favorite one.
I hope the encores will not fall under a random sort of thing,possibly destroying the atmosphere.

Looking at some of these setlists, it's nice to imagine that some of these would be real.

But hey, what about this?  Here's a nightmare setlist.

In Between Days
Just Like Heaven
The Walk
Let's Go To Bed
The End Of The World
alt.end
From The Edge Of The Deep Green Sea

Encore:

Why Can't I Be You?
Boys Don't Cry


Pretty cool, huh? :oops:

Not that I really dislike any of these songs, but I'm sure some of you will see my point...
Not bad,but I can't agree with alt.end and The Walk,although most of them
have a proper 'Time to go' potential,if badly placed. :?

Not for me, I would never leave a show during "inbetween days" (first Cure song I ever heard) or "Just like heaven" (one of the most perfect pop songs EVER)!
but memory's not life... and it's not love.

OK.My list is deliberately shortened to have more space for the
announced rarities,'new songs' and even Greatest Hits.I know we had
some discussions about the encore section,but this thread is somewhat unique,
to form a good cross section.However,I won't give any guarantee for the time after
180 min,mainly because of my condition and health.That's it.

I see. Of course a 3 hour+ show can be exhausting! I don't think I would leave, maybe watch/hear the rest from a "quieter" place at the back or so (I think I might've done that in Munich years ago on the Dream tour... it wasn't sold out, thus I was able to walk around a bit during the show and try different "points of view").

No Porl?  Wow.  He's a member of The Cure even when he ISN'T a member of The Cure.  Glad you included A Strange Day though.

Without thinking about it too much, I'll take the first night in London 11-26-92 with The Big Hand.  Gotta throw Underneath The Stars in at the beginning.  Only one other opening number is its equivalent, Plainsong.  Open is good, but only with the three guitars in 1992.  Something missing after that.  2005 versions are good too, if only for the novelty.  That's doing it a bit of a disservice but...oh well.
