Default Love me back to Life

Is the reason they aren't playing this live because THEY think it sounds too much like The Distance? If not that, why would you leave it out? I wonder how many fans would rather hear it than Right Side of Wrong. I think Love me back to Life is slightly better than The Distance, and I don't think of them as similar (did for the first week). Love me... is more like a These Days track, in the style of If That's What It Takes, another song I believe they have never done live. Maybe Europe will get lucky and get Love me .. live, from Crush the only songs they never did were Save the World and She's a Mystery. From Bounce, they have yet to do You Had Me.., Open All Night, All about Lovin You (I think....these dont include the accoustic gig). So we have just 1 rocker, the best real rocker on the album maybe, to be played.

Yes - I was just about to say the same thing!

I think Love me back to life is maybe the worst song on Bounce.

i can think of worse to be honest... open all night...

at least love me back to life has a good guitar riff - i keep saying this but i'm finding more and more that the band are actually writing some very good verses (musically anyway)... but i think they are taking this chorus "hook" idea a little too far

I definately prefer Right Side of Wrong over Love Me Back To Life. I don't think it's the worst song either....I like it on it's own. But Right Side tends to be dimissed a bit too much here. To me it seems its the track with the most potential to rule live. As long as the people don't shut it out just because they didn't like the album version. I give the people who dismiss Right Side, this........when he sings "we got four kids all hungry and one on the way" I'm thinking the real issue here in the song is lack of birth control. So immediately you got the visual of some white trailer trash from Deliverance. I'll leave further analysis of the song for another thread.

Anyway....I actually agree with you..Letitrock..regarding some of the choruses. I personally like the song, Bounce EXCEPT I have a hard time with the title. I mean.....the song is supposed to have a bad ass attitude....but the word "bounce" and "bad ass" don't go together. Mostly pornographic visions appear in my head when I hear the chorus. At any rate...it don't work. You're not sure if you are supposed to laugh or scoff. But I gotta admit I like the song otherwise.....except maybe the "counted out 6,7,8,9" line. I half expect him to next sing "then I recited my A, B, C's"

Oh and uhm...I don't think Love Me Back To Life sounds like the Distance..where did this become some kind of fact that is it regularly thought of sounding similar?

I didn't dismiss anything, all I said was Love me back to life, would probably be preferred by more fans than Right side of wrong. I think thats a given, most people want the harder tracks done all concert long, especially male fans like myself. A concert should mostly be for your rock tracks if thats what type of band you are. Right side isnt a bad song, but its far from a favourite. As for all that stuff on what songs bring up in your mind, Im not into that. A song is a song, the words mean nothing to me pretty much as long as it sounds good. You dont have to worry about words with BJ, they dont write stupid tunes.

Right Side Of Wrong Stinks...

At least in my book anyway.

Joey is worse though.
