Your "bathroom break" concert tunes

I'm a huge Springsteen fan but knowing that each show should have a performance of "Waiting on a Sunny Day" (complete with a kid from the audience singing a portion), is my cue to hit the bathroom and concessions.

What are your "bathroom" break tunes?

Ugh... I hate when he does that. And I usually go to multiple shows in the area, so it's just night after night of Sunny Day cringe. I'm usually in GA though, so I don't go to the bathroom.

Not counting two Broadway shows and some other appearances... I can't believe its going to be 6 (and more likely 7) years since I've seen him live.

Taken directly from the Guns N Roses new song thread:

So far it's consistently right after Let Me Be Your Dog and right before Civil War

Also serves as a reminder that I have seen the Stones like six times over the years and have made a bathroom stop during the Keith Richards song (usually “Happy” or “Slipping Away” in the last five of them. If it’s good enough for Mick, it’s good enough for me.

Yeah, not to hijack the thread topic, but I'm totally with you. I'd take TWO Sunny Days to be on E Street again.

I always think it's funny going to see the Rolling Stones. There is always a point in the show where Mick goes backstage & Keith takes the lead on a couple of his songs. You can see a tide of people flowing to the bathrooms.

Re : the sidetrack :
Six years, not counting Broadway? Boo fuckin Hoo. I last saw Springsteen (my second Springsteen show after LA Sports Arena, 1988) in 1999 at the first concert ever held at Indianapolis' then just-opened Conseco Fieldhouse. And they didn't know how to set up the sound system, so it sounded so muddy and terrible that Billy Joel would make a joke about it a few months later ("I've heard even basketball sounds bad in this arena"). Had tickets to another show in 2002 but it got rescheduled due to Clemons eye surgery and moved to a date that I couldn't make because it was my mom's 60th birthday party in LA. Moved to Vegas the next year and he has NEVER come here in those ensuing 19 years. Not once. Maybe now that we have an NFL stadium...

He just said in a recent interview that a new tour is coming pretty soon so here's hoping you get some Boss Time this year.

He doesn't play it often live, but "God's Own Drunk" by Jimmy Buffett is definitely that song for me. It is such a boring song live.

Well... at least you now have a reason to come to the east coast and can schedule a visit around tour dates.

Piggy by Nine Inch Nails

Aside from the kinda jazzy ending, I've never liked that song. It's generally played in the middle of the setlist, and a ton of people like it, so I can jet to the bathroom and back in time to catch the last minute or so.

Not a song, but when Bono starts talking in his serious voice about the environment or global poverty....

I have never once left a show to go to the bathroom. I take care of that during intermission.

Any rock band playing a ballad. I wanna rock not listen to that sappy shit.

Last time I saw Nickelback I could have pissed for half the concert...spent a lot of time getting beers.

Re: Your "bathroom break" concert tunes

Not a bathroom break song, but my favorite band is guaranteed to play their biggest #1 hit as the last song of the night...I hit the parking lot faster than you can say "Chicken Fried" by the Zac Brown Band.
