    Just realized this site doesn't have a Traveling Wilburys thread :wa:

    So I decided to fix that deficiency :grinthumb

    [​IMG]


    Some of my favourites include:

    Handle With Care
    End of the Line
    Tweeter and the Monkey Man
    Last Night
    Wilbury Twist
    She's My Baby
    Congratulations

    I also can't help but chuckle at the way they take the piss outta certain stereotyped songs in their 2nd album, "Vol. 3"

    - Cool Dry Place (parodying the country-rock style of complaining about trivial things, in this case the singer's guitars going out of tune)
    - You Took My Breath Away (parodying boy band songs - "You took my breath away, I want it back again")
    - Wilbury Twist (parodying the style of dance song that tell you what to do - "You put your hand on your head. Foot in the air. Then you hop around the room. In your underwear.")

    :heheh:

    My trademark whenever I actually play live (rare these days, the rest of live caught up, but mean to do more of it in the future :) ) is I'll open with "Handle With Care", and I'll always play "Last Night" somewhere in the middle :)

    Have also been known to throw in a bit of Tweeter, End of the Line and Inside Out on occasion.

    I love "Tweeter & The Monkey Man" .. I can only find "covers" of this tune on YouTube.

    Re: Traveling Wilburys

    Yeah, Warner Music went incredibly anal over Wilburys videos on YouTube prior to the box set release, and haven't let up since... 5 songs (Handle With Care, End of the Line, She's My Baby, Inside Out and Wilbury Twist) are on an official channel, but other than that it's very hard to find anything on the tube :wa:
