i agree the Chaka song was great live, i was looking forward to hearing it on the CD, along with Cloudbusting. emo is gonna be maaaaaad! as far as i know they did record the songs so they will probably turn up as B-sides at some point, hopefully.

Real Love...
Personally, I'm interested in hearing the Dulli take on that song. Mainly due to the fact that Mike Doughty (former frontman for Soul Coughing) has had it as part of his "small rock" solo act for a few years. If you know Doughty's style, the contrast should be intruiging.

I think the Coltrane and Gaye tracks should be pretty killer. I think Dulli has been channeling those guys for a while himself. :)

All in all, looks like a pretty solid selection. The ones they played during this tour certainly had enough of a Twilight stamp on them to not stick out as covers during the set. Well, save Hyperballad...but, ya know, Bjork I think exists in her own layer of mighty music, and it's hard to alter that.

Cloudbusting, dove cuesto?
I was really digging it on the last tour, and it seemed so Twilight-ish too that it would have been great. Why not guys? Hope that will be a b-side sometime.
