Tragically Hip Tour Stat Pack Vol. 5

Pin It Now!

v.5 Stats are from 04/24/2009 - 11/07/2009 (78 shows)

Hey All!

The Stat Pack is broken down into a few different categories. I have all We Are the Same songs at the top followed by the rest. It's pretty self explanatory. Enjoy.

We Are the Same

Total Plays:

1. The Depression Suite (76) - Only 2 shows not played: 4/29/2009 & 11/06/2009
2. Morning Moon (74) - 65 of 74 have come in the first set. Has shown up in the acoustic portion 3 times.
3. Love Is A First (72) - 60/72 have either been as a 1st set opener or closer.
4. The Last Recluse (66) - 28 first sets, 37 second sets (including 7 acoustic), 1 encore. Who are you? Drop me a line if you've got something to say. mrjackstraw@gmail.com or add a comment anywhere you like.
5. Coffee Girl (63) - Played in 11 of the past 12 shows with only 2 appearances in the acoustic portion during that time after a pretty extensive run there.
6. Now the Struggle has a Name(53) - 4 appearances in the last 12 shows represents a significant drop off for this song.
7. Frozen In My Tracks (46) - 25 of 46 playings have come in the encore.
8. Honey, Please (24) - Only played in 8 of the last 38 shows. Not sure why.
9. Queen of the Furrows (23) - Hey, at least they play it sometimes.
10. The Exact Feeling (18) - 6 of the last 38. C'ya.
11. Speed River (11) - Speed River is still froze over. 0 for the last 53.
12. Country Day (7) - No comment.

Notes: The top 3 songs are getting the NOIS treatment. The last Recluse and especially Struggle have dropped off some. Frozen is an encore machine. Honey & Queen could have used some of the air time that went to Coffee Girl, Morning Moon, Last Recluse, Struggle. The gap is just to big. Exact Feeling & Speed River are fine songs, but within this collection they are nothing more than filler. With regards to Country Day, I think a great opportunity was wasted with The Hip having the addition of a keyboard player and more time to play more songs. This is a beautiful, soaring number that the band could have had a lot of fun with. I don't think it's necessarily a set closer, but there are many set list placements that would have been quite effective. What might have been...

I can understand why they leaned so heavily on certain songs. This is a very, very solid album front to back and the weak links are only perceived as weak due to their immediate company. I think Love Is A First will have more of an effect when we don't hear it every show. The Depression Suite is something else though. This is the song I have been wanting The Hip to write forever. I'm having a hard time coming up with any Hip song I like better. It's fucking brilliant.
