Hummingbird (always will be my #1 favorite)

Pieholden Suite (always a close #2, especially solo acoustic :))

Say You Miss Me

Impossible Germany

Ashes of American Flags

Pot Kettle Black

When You Wake Up Feeling Old

Wishful Thinking

You Are My Face

Poor Places > Reservations (there is no other choice but to naturally follow Poor Places with Reservations, effectively making them one song)


Almost made the cut:

Radio Cure


Sunken Treasure (moreover the solo version)

On and On and On

The Colon Song [circa 2000] (I had to :ninja this one in)

My Darling (only the Sessions on 54th Street version, though)

Via Chicago

More Like The Moon

What Good Am I

Jesus, etc.

Less Than You Think
