The obvious choice is Fins for the visual crowd interaction.

Margaritaville is also the obvious choice, as it is the National Anthem.

The live version of One Particular Harbor on the Feeding Frenzy album absolutely ROCKS during the instrumental break! The Coral Reefers were magical on that one!

The fan interaction on Pecil Thin Mustache is also fun, and John Lovell and his "jazz trumpet" playing has really added alot to it in the last few years!

For whatever reason, Southern Cross and Brown Eyed Girl are just fun live every time!

I was on the lawn in Cincinnati in '06 and I can say that We are the People/Twist & Shout and Desperation Samba were crazy fun! I've never had so much fun drunk dancing with complete strangers. 8) Those songs were just special that night!

I love Come Monday on its own, and it's a great change of pace song during a high-energy concert.

CILCIA always gets me, even if just for the parking lot videos
"I need to start growing up," I thought to myself the other day, as I sat in my pillow fort.

I'm partial to Changes in Latitudes w/ the tailgating picture/video montage... Probably because we end up on the screen every year and it just feels great.

This is like asking to pick a favorite child... They're all great and I'm just looking forward to the Chicago show @ the end of the month!

I have wanted to and never been on the big screen.
I did shoot the coconut into the basket pre show in Vegas last year and got a big round of applause.

Apparently it helps to have a giant cheeseburger. I've got a 2nd if you'd like to buy yourself a ticket into the CILCIA video at your next show.
