Default I am a river

Totally underrated song that I’d love to hear live. This would close a show perfectly. Just musing on it and wondering why it wasn’t played in a live set.

Fucking love this song. Live with the orchestra was awesome (wherever that was shown, Sonic Highways doc?)

Yeah I think they only ever played it at a gig at the NYC sonic highways show. Would love to hear it live.

Yup, only once at an actual gig, the secret NYC show. They also did it on Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, with an orchestra.

Urgh! This one is on the same list as Wheels for me and I would be cringing for the rest of the week if they ever closed a show with it. ��

It sounds like Christian rock music

/opinion

edit: Just went back to listen again, to make sure. Yeah this is 'Burn Away' bad! 5 mins too long as well!

Sonic Highways is bad from the beginning to the end.

But I don’t get the Burn Away hate, I mean I know even dave hates it, but IMO it’s great! Better than most they’ve come up since. I mean the melody, the build into the ’breathe for me from now on’ part and the part itself.. With better production it would have been really good.

En route to a client meeting today I have stopped in an obscure cafe in the city of London for coffee. I am a river is playing in here! How weird.

I love it, such a great song w/ great instrumental build up w/ orchestra in the last 2 mins or so! I know I've seen it on Fallon but got to watch that again!
