Was actually gonna play the Candide one but figured this might go over better
Okay, okay, yeah, this is an obvious pick. Truthfully, this is probably about my 5th choice. Played one, some have been taken, or nothing live exists (looking at you, Ocean & Cave).
It's a favorite of many here anyway, so figured I'd give it a spin. Here's a nice manic cut to lanch you into 2017. Good luck, you guys.

Fun little tribute buried in the middle.
4 July 1986
Pretty sure that's The Heartbreakers. Anyone care to refute me?
Yeah, I could cotton to this.
Here is my Wilco story: I was working in the NW suburbs of Chicago in 1997. Being There was my favorite album at the time. I listened to a little indie radio station called WCBR - The Bear. They announced that Wilco would be playing Harper College in Palatine, Illinois. I think this is the only place that advertised the show. My wife and I got tickets. We get to the college and the venue is basically a big lecture hall. I was sitting in the 4th row right next to Tweedy's wife who was holding their then 2-year old son wearing big ear protection. Tweedy walks out and the first thing he does is says, "We're playing a f'n classroom?!"
The show was great. It felt like we were sitting in the band's living room. They took requests from the crowd and, at one point in the show, Tweedy came and grabbed his fussy son and sat him on his lap.
This is the song that I thought would make them stars.
This seems like an odd song to play at Farm Aid.
This is Dylan at his worst. Look at thar earring. Ugh.
