The best songs are the ones that make you jump out of your seat.
Those are usually the ones he's never done live since the Beatle break-up - or the ones you've never heard live before.
The Flowers in the Dirt tour was the most amazing in that respect.
That was his first tour since Wings Over America and the first time he really let loose with the Beatle songs.
A particular thrill are the songs he's NEVER EVER done live. I'll never forget the crowd going wild when he did "Sgt Pepper" and the Abbey Road finale on that tour. The place went nuts.
But the same is true the first time he did 1985, Mrs. Vanderbilt, ….
"Live and Let Die" is absolutely awesome – especially if the special effects take you by surprise.
Then there are songs you don't care for so much on the studio album but somehow sound better live. For me that would inlcude "Band on the Run" and "Jet." The ulitmate winner in that category is "My Love" - a song that slightly nauseates me. But in concert (Back in the U.S. tour?) his voice was fantastic – reminiscent of the Hey Jude fade out; definitely worth a listen.
