Best live performances

For pure ‘hauntingly’ great live performances I have to nominate these six...


Sara Bareilles - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (possibly my favourite live cover ever)
https://youtu.be/eAti8JNmJi8


Radiohead - Creep (Not their best song but damn, he goes for it here)
https://youtu.be/k3_RU30tEIE


Fleetwood Mac - Rhiannon (Stevie Nicks possessed)
https://youtu.be/W_O4Ygcgh8w


Lindsey Buckingham - Go Insane (Love this guy, best in the business at playing guitar without using a pick)
https://youtu.be/2o_YI_PgK0o


Prince, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, Steve Winwood, Dhani Harrison - While my guitar gently weeps (Prince absolutely smashes it here)
https://youtu.be/6SFNW5F8K9Y


Heart - Magic Man (One of the most underrated bands that ever was)

Think I remember seeing Muse on a tv performance, maybe TOTP and they weren’t able to actually ‘play’ their instruments so just took the p**s. All switched places too just to add to the p**stake and made no attempt to look like they were actually playing.

Not a massive U2 fan but this version of Where The Streets Have No Name is pretty stirring.

There used to be a video on YouTube of Dodgy performing “If you’re thinking of me” live at the Phoenix festival back in the 90’s, it was excellent but has been take down

Love Jeff Buckley but his version of the song is awful. Stripped of all the bitterness of the original that makes it so grate.
