OK! So, I haven’t done a serious post in a long time…it’s not because I don’t want to, it’s more because my thoughts are not organized enough with all that has happened. I am currently working on a post entitled thoughts on authenticity but until that time I have this one. Today at lunch we were discussing great live performances so below you will find some of my favorites. I chose on originality, creativity, and sheer enjoyment. You don’t have to agree with me…but I bet you will. Feel free to add your own.
In no particular order here are my favorites…
Michael Jackson – Billy Jean – It’s not the original but still, no description needed!
U2 and Green Day – The Saints are Coming – Sentimental for me, but also incredible.
NYSYNC – BYE BYE BYE – Don’t mock me! I apologize for the beginning of the video but if you wade through it and watch the BYE BYE BYE portion you will understand why I think it is one of the best…I hope. It’s just the middle part.
Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Castello, Dave Grohl, and Steve Van Zandt – The Clash Tribute – If you don’t know who The Clash are…then know that I am sad for you.
Guns N Roses and Elton John – November Rain – When of the best/odd combinations in a live performance…ever.
Beyonce – Ring the Alarm – Say what you want, this performance is sick…specifically beginning at 2:29
Coldplay – The Scientist – Granted this is one of my favorite songs, but the simplicity of this performance is beautiful.
U2 – Super Bowl – Sure U2 is on here twice…there’s a reason…they rock! And this performance is not only frickin awesome but it’s also moving…in fact if you don’t get chills…check your pulse.
