I made big whiskey a little fatter...

So, I combined the b-sides from stand up and and Big whiskey together with the album to create what I would consider a freaking awesome album. Anyone else do this? Here's my track placement:

Grux
Shake Me Like A Monkey
Funny The Way It Is
Beach Ball
Lying In the Hands Of God
Why I Am
Joy Ride
Dive In
Write A Song
Spaceman
Cornbread
Squirm
Alligator Pie
Seven
#27
Time Bomb
Baby Blue
Little Red Bird
You and Me
Trouble With You

    i like your track list (other then trouble with you) thats kinda a waste of space in my book, that song belongs with the rest of SU in the verrry back of my cd case

    Love it! Minus Trouble with You... not because I don't like the song but because You & Me is the best way to end the album.

    EDIT: For some reason it makes me feel like we got something extra...a longer album that flows very nicely.

    Yeah, I agree, I just figured it would save the hassle of skipping over the track

    why would you want to repeat the albums worst song that many times?

    Re: I made big whiskey a little fatter...

    the only complaint i have from the album is that Write a Song did not make the final cut....at least we got it on a B-side so that's cool...but I really wish it was on the main disc.

    I wish Little Red Bird and Alligator Pie were saved for a Dave Studio effort. So I'd actually make BWGK a little thinner.

    Did anyone else buy the UK version to get the two extra tracks? I know Write a song came with the super deluxe.

    Trouble with You sucks. It's as bad as any given song on Stand Up...

    I don't know why a lot of people think this one is so great.

    Seven, however, is one of the best songs on the album. The only one better is Squirm.

    I like Trouble With You. It suffers from the same problem that every other SU track does.. it takes a repetitive riff and does little to build on it. So whether or not you like the track largely depends on whether you like the riff. I like it in this song, so I can ignore its repetitive nature and drum machine percussion. Wouldn't want to hear it live though.
