I reckon they'll get three songs. My picks would be:

Lonesome Street
New World Towers
Mirrorball

Jools Holland usually has a limit on the length of song you can play - can't go over 5 minutes - so that'll rule a couple out (Pyongyang and Spaceman?).
Tender and Black Book are over 5 minutes, and yet they played them. But that was a long time ago. I'm sure they can squeeze Pyongyang in there.
Aye, like I said usually. They may make an exception for Blur what with them being so awesome :D

Pyongyang would be great - if they can play it I'd go

Lonesome Street
New World Towers

Ah, yeah. I Broadcast would be wicked. Would be nice to show the constrast of sounds on this album to have something punky and short if they did play Pyongyang too for example.

Yes exactly. I'll say this though, based on the live stream versions, the only song I'm still not feeling is Pyongyang. It's just not doing anything for me yet. :oops:

They'll probably get two songs on the live Tuesday show and then an additional two for the recorded Friday show.

Go Out
Ice Cream Man
Lonesome Steet
Spaceman

I hope someone can record this. BOTH shows. Remember that the band will most likely play two songs in the live Tuesday show but then play them again for the recorded Friday show. So multiple performances of two songs with the addition of one or two more on Friday.

I think Spaceman would go down very very well. A stand out track for sure. I don't see them playing any old songs as Jools is a show mostly for new material, but if they fancy playing Black Book, Ambulance or Blues Jeans...I won't complain. ;)

For the main show I can see the final song being an old crowd pleaser. The main act often does that to close the programme don't they. Would prefer all new though personally.

Yeah I'd prefer all new myself. We have plenty of performances to watch of any crowd pleasers they might decide to play.

Bugman on Jools was one of my fave live performances...

Trouble In The Message Center would go down a treat as the final song...

That would be the most prudent thing to do, considering the technical difficulties they had at Mode. The world is still waiting to hear those songs properly.
