Default PROJECT: The Top 25 Live SP Songs

LiveNirvana did a project where their forum compiled a ranking of the top 30 Nirvana live songs, where #1 is song X on date N1, with arguments presented for date N2


Quote:
Where Did You Sleep Last Night? (Paris, France 02/14/94)

The best NIRVANA live cut of all time. Roar Aasheim, Matt Reeder, Chris Hickman, and Felipe Souza all have this rendition as #1 on their lists. This performance was the last time the band would ever perform the song. Rolf Fassbind sets the scene, "Kurt's vocals, the cello - everything sounds very emotional."

Felipe Souza elaborates, "Better than unplugged, in my opinion. The deep feeling of pain in Kurt's voice mixed with the perfect way the band played their instruments make of this moment one of the most beautiful ones in Nirvana's career."

Chris Hickman opines, "No performance of any song at any time comes as close to expressing Kurt's raw emotion and pain as this song... he almost seems to be in tears in the first verse, and the feedback at the end of the song sounds like whales crying."

Alex Vance continues, "It was very, very hard to pick between this and the 02/07/92 version, but in the end this one wins because the cello line is so beautiful."

Ambarish Maharaj: "The perfect ending."

Also wildly popular with LN voters was the MTV Unplugged rendition. Indeed, if it had been a different song, it would have been ranked #2 in this list in its own right. Kevin Stillwell mentions, "I like how he screams the last verse."

Chris Hickman is also a fan of this version, "While not as good as 02/14/94, this would be the last hurrah for a television audience in the USA Kurt would make. [Live and Loud] is just an afterthought, in my opinion. Kurt's decision to use lillies and candles throughout the set - like a funeral - is a grim reminder for all as to what was to come in less than 5 months."

Erik Sieckman, however, considers this rendition superior, "The Unplugged concert was perhaps the crowning achievement of the In Utero era, and was capped off by this song, Nirvana's best performance of any song EVER. After many years of owning Unplugged, I still get chills each and every time I hear this. When Kurt says, 'Shiver for me', I shiver."

A few dissenters prefer the electric version of this song, which the band performed on a mere handful of occasions. Christopher Allen is one of them. "The majority here think that 02/14/94 is the performance of all performances of the song. I disagree although 02/14/94 is great, I like the "hard rock" version. The bands last show is Australia ever. A great all around show. I just love the distortion solo of the song. No cello on this performance just sweat and angst."
Thought it'd be fun with the pumpkins.

I'm thinking the best way to structure this is to vote on the 25 best songs, then do 25 votes on the best performances of those: IE Ruby wins the #1 vote of 25, so we then have a thread voting between 5/15/96, 7/10/96, etc

if there's a better way, call me a dumbass ASAP. I can't find the exact methodology LN used

The live version of Geek from Mashed Potatoes where he says go fuck yourself at the end is the best.

If we ever got a decent recording of Porcelina from the real last show it would be my choice.
