Default Stranger Things Have Happened

The song has grown on me over the years. But why, when I listen to it, do I always expect the rest of the band to come in at the end and just thrash out the last verse and chorus?

Did they do this live once and I'm transferring a memory?

I don't think they have ever played it live. Solo nor full band.

One of their top 10 songs. I wish there was a live version to enjoy.
Maybe their 25th anniverary will be celebrated with a live album of 25 fan-favorites never/rarely played.

According to Simon's website they haven't ever played it live.

This is the number 1 song I would love to see played live. I wish they had released it as a single too.

A great song it is! It is puzzling they haven't played it. One must wonder if its one of the tracks that they just don't like that much. If so, then the Foos have bad taste!

Amazing song. Wish they would play it. I don't know if they do the "Dave comes out for a solo acoustic set in the middle of their show" thing anymore, but I'd love to see Dave and Chris pull this one out. Could lead into a full electric set, Tired, or even Skin & Bones.

I think this is a pretty hard song to play and sing to live (I've tried it) which is maybe why Dave doesn't.

Reminds me though of when Eddie Vedder did an acoustic version of Porch before any of the support acts came on. Went down a storm with the crowd.

Wish Dave would do the same

Oh man, that's some big wishing you're doing there.
