    Songs Before the Show?

    I didn't see this anywhere, so apologies if it's a repeat.  (Mods: if it is a repeat, can you please either delete this thread or merge it with the proper one?  Thanks!)

    I'm trying to put together a list of songs that were played before the live shows this tour.

    Off the top of my head, I remember:
    "When Doves Cry" - Prince
    "Why (12" Mix)" - Carly Simon
    "Hang Me Up to Dry" - Cold War Kids
    "That's Not My Name" - Ting Tings

    ETA: "Modern Love" by David Bowie
    "Handle Me" by Robyn
    "Once in a Lifetime" by Talking Heads
    "Paper Planes" by M.I.A.

    I think I also heard "Kids" by MGMT, but I could be wrong.  - CONFIRMED.

    Can anyone help?

    ETA again: I blame Tom for buying a Robyn CD.  Half of it was palatable Eurodance, the rest was awful. 

    Thanks in advance!

    Robyn, Handle Me...that and the Ting Tings are all I'm remembering at the moment.  I was slightly over-excited at the time Smile

    I can't believe I forgot "Once in a Lifetime."  I was even doing the hand gesture thingie along to the song.  Embarrassed

    Wasn't it "Electric Feel"? I'm not sure. 

    Paper Plane by MIA should be on the list.

    Oooh Thanks so much! They played "Golden Skans" back in June at the Cologne gig where I was too. But I didn't know the title or artist of this song. Now I do!! Thanks Left coast! I've been looking for this!

    Oh yeah. And I wonder wether Tim sang along unconsciously when hearing it playing before the show. XD

    Ahhh, I like this topic. Who remember the songs before the shows on Strangeland Tour? I remember The Smiths and Bruce Springsteen, and I think...La Roux so well. Can you help me to do the list?

    During the N. America part of the tour I remember them playing 'Jesus Walks' by Kanye West in both Denver and Salt Lake City...
    Was it all in real time, or was it just in my mind?...Forget the ghosts that make you old before your time...

    Re: Songs Before the Show?

    One was definitely "Baby Missiles" by The War on Drugs.  I know Tim's said that's a recent favorite of his.

    Re: Songs Before the Show?

    But 'Baby Missiles' plays when they're up on the stage. Before, when we're waiting for Keane, many songs are played and it's always the same sequence.
