    assuming all the band members have unlimited stamina and play all of those continuously

    • Might as well have just listed their whole discography judging by that setlist.

    • With minimal stage banter this would be a 210-minute show. Mew’s previous record in Helsinki was 123-minutes, so this would be considerably longer. But hey, if Bruce Springsteen can do 3,5hrs, why not? Bruce’s career longest show also was in the Finland capital (a whopping 4,5hrs). Helsinki has some weird magical power to keep artists on stage, it seems.

    • We should put a limit! I say 18 songs, and here’s mine:
      1. Circuitry of the Wolf
      2. Chinaberry Tree
      3. Introducing Palace Players
      4. Why Are You Looking Grave?
      5. Am I Wry? No
      6. 156
      7. An Envoy to the Open Fields
      8. Satellites
      9. My Complications
      10. Special
      11. The Zookeeper’s Boy
      12. The Changes medley
      13. Wherever (the Frengers version)
      14. My Complications
      15. Do You Love It?
      16.Rows (I don’t even know it, but… you know you’d do the same)
      17. Louise Louisa
      18. Comforting Sounds

    • 1. Circuity of the Wolf
      2. Chinaberry Tree.
      3. Why Are You Looking Grave?

      17. Reprise
      —2nd ENCORE

    • Honestly, I’d love to see them play ATGHK from start to finish.

      As for dream setlist. Gonna have to dwell on that for a bit.

      • I tried to do a (kind of) realistic one for the tour to come…I know I cheated a bit to bring it down to 18 😉

        I think I’d be pretty pleased with this, though I’d die for Louise Louisa & An Envoy to the Open Fields…

    • For me it’s songs I haven’t heard live..
      That Time On The Ledge
      In Time do You Forget
      Swimmer’s Chant
      Plus favorites like
      Chinaberry Tree
      White Lips Kissed
      Comforting Sounds
      Louise Louisa
      She Came Home For Christmas
      Cartoons and Macrame Wounds
      New Songs:
      Night Believer
      Water Slides
      Songs I’ve heard live but are on my boyfriend’s wishlist:
      She Spider
      Snow Brigade
      Apocalypso with the Special interlude

      • I may actually give up on Special for the Apocalypso + Special version. The rhythm is amazing and Jonas kills it.

        • Same here so I’ll substitute the new version of New Terrain in it’s place. My setlist was in no particular order.. I should rearrange it 🙂
