What's your favorite song (released or unreleased) that was soundchecked/performed live?

For me it'd be either A Whisper (WAIT! Don't hate on me just yet), DLIBYH, or Daylight.

A Whisper has only been performed twice since being released, once in 2002 in Seattle and the other in 2014 at the Royal Albert Hall (I think). I personally despise the song, seems a bit too repetitive and would've done better as a b-side, but it sounds pretty good live, especially Jonny's guitar. Here's two videos of it, the first being the 2014 performance and the other being a soundcheck from 2002. [video=youtube;ofzKiWaKRQ8]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofzKiWaKRQ8[/video] [video=youtube;SaBs3PbckPU]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SaBs3PbckPU[/video].

DLIBYH's guitar and bass is amazing live, nuff said.

Need I say more about Daylight?

the whole Glastonbury 2005 show was amazing, not least because they played lots of X&Y songs they would rarely or never play again

The live version of Violet Hill is extremely raw and visceral. Love it.

On a side note, I also can't wait to hear Ghost Story performed live.

God put a smile, live on jools Holland, check it out

The Glastonbury 2011 is one of the best. Especially yellow and violet hill, shiver

Trouble pinkpop 2011

Midnight is pretty cool live I thought.

Out of curiosity, what songs from ghost stories do you reckon will stay in the set list for future tours??
I'd say magic anyway..
