Feb. 20 in EP Music History Trivia

Postby KarenZ » Wed Feb 20, 2008 10:54 am

Folks,

Well, since yesterday's trivia was so much fun - let's do it again! :) Fast forward 5 years (from yesterday's trivia setlist) to Feb. 20, 2004. I'm now at The Village Meeting House in Williamsville, NY at show #120.

Here's the setlist from that night:

1. Jukebox on My Grave
2. Maria’s Beautiful Mess
3. Clarity
4. I've Got 9 Months To Fix The World
5. 3000 Miles
[break]
6. Words
7. The Only Way
8. New Orleans
9. Speed Of Trees
10. God’s Promise
11. If you break down
12. eighteen
13. The World Ain't Slowing Down
[encore]
14. she was
15. art of distance

Two encore numbers. And wow.....it was one of only a handful of times that I've ever heard "the art of distance".

Although I didn't hear any song for the 1st time that night, I did hear a song for what was the 2nd time that night.

Any guesses? :)

I've never been very good with math. Was trying to think how old Ella was, using the date you gave. No big surprise I got it wrong! :lol:

Karen

Is this another trick question? :P Okay...I'll answer in the form of a riddle.

Was 'she was' worth 'the art of distance' :?:

I just had childhood flashbacks with Oscar the Grouch. Thanks for the laugh, Karen.

Was it Clarity???? We could all use a dose of that right about know, eh?

Okay...have only had 1 cup of coffee this morning. So, I need come clarity.

I'm thinking it's a fairly new song for Ellis. Has yet to play it out much. He likely does 2 things with this song that night. He sound checks it. He plays it early. Not first....not second....third slot seems right for it. Get it out of the way so he doesn't have to sweat it all night.

Clarity

If I'm wrong again, it's okay. My coffee maker just ding dinged that the 2nd cup of coffee is ready and clarity is soon to follow. :D

I love Oscar too. For whatever reason I still remember every word to the song "I Love Trash!"

And, I love Clarity. It is one of my most favorite EP songs and I never fail to get the chills when I hear that song.
