7. Frozen In My Tracks(40) - Didn't show up in the set list until 4/29/2009 making Frozen the last song to be played live on this tour from WATS. 5 first sets, 16 second sets, 19 encores.
8. Honey, Please(22) - Only played in 6 of the last 26 shows. 5 of those were in the 2nd set.
9. Queen of the Furrows(21) - "This song is picking up momentum". That was my quote from the last Stat Pack 2. I recanted in Stat Pack 3, but now I'm recanting the recant. 7 of 18, which is High Times for the Queen. A good song that along with Honey Please and Country Day, deserves more concert play.
10. The Exact Feeling(18) - 6 of the last 26. Hey, at least it's getting dusted off. That's more than I can say for the 2 songs below. I didn't even need to change my comments from last time.
11. Speed River (11) - Speed River has froze over. 0 for the last 41.
12. Country Day (7) - I guess it was swimming in the Speed River when it froze over. Already a rarity. Too bad.

Depression Suite, The - 31
Love Is A First - 13
New Orleans Is Sinking - 13
Honey Please - 4
Last Recluse, The - 4
Now the Struggle has a Name - 1

Notes: NOIS has opened the last 13/26 shows. Not an ideal bathroom break spot, but feel free to linger outside a bit longer or to take some extra time for your indulgences. I can't believe how much they play this song. I mean if you have to why not flop positions with Blow at High Dough every once in a while. Walk out on stage and open with Blow. Why not? No one will see that coming. Then you can get off to NOIS in a one song EPIC encore. Old school style. I'm not even going to bring up Courage...

***********************************************************************************
First Set Closers

14 different songs have sent you off for a piss and some beer. Smoke 'em if ya got 'em!

Love Is A First - 36
Depression Suite, The - 10
Blow at High Dough -4
Now the Struggle has a Name - 3
Country Day - 2
Springtime In Vienna - 2
Escape Is at Hand for the Travelin' Man - 1
Fifty Mission Cap - 1
Frozen In My Tracks - 1
Last Recluse, The - 1
My Music at Work - 1
New Orleans Is Sinking - 1
Tiger the Lion - 1
Three Pistols - 1

If you can get 3:1 odds that Love won't open the show, you gotta take it. You will lose this bet over 1/2 the time, but when you win it will be worth it. Just sayin'...you're there, might as well place a bet or two to pass the time.

Little Bones - 6
Poets - 2
Fully Completely - 1
