boyyourself wrote:my theory why Cooley doesnt play Daddys Cup is because he is perhaps not really a fan of the characters he created for that song. he also not only dislikes car racing, but also potentially has a sore spot for race fans in general and doesnt want to make it seem like he himself is a bud light drinking flag waving church going child spanking MAGA sorta fella. DBT do not represent those things and ya know image is everything.
its just a rambling muse. I could be full of it as usual.

Hmmm. I doubt that is the reason. He still plays Cottonseed at his solo shows but he's not a Southern mob boss or somebody who thinks murder is cool.

Patterson isn't a murderous preacher. I'm sure he's not cool with what the State Line Mafia did to the Pusser family and he has never served in the military. Yet he has written and performs multiple songs from each of those points of view.

Driveby Truckers are right up front with what they believe in. But if they only performed songs that featured characters they liked and agreed with the wouldn't be nearly as interesting or nearly as good at what they do.

Only Cooley.knows why he never plays Daddy's Cup but not liking the characters doesn't square with anything else about this band and what makes them great.
Yeah, what Cole said.

One of my favorite books. And the rare instance where the movie did the book justice.It was different, but still fantastic.

And back on topic, I list "Goodbye" every time this kind of thread comes up. And I'd be content to get "Plastic Flowers" and "Road Cases" on the rest of the shows I ever see. I'm pretty certain I'd never get tired of either and would like to put that theory to the test. For Cooley songs, it's "Daddy's Cup" and bringing back "Carl Perkins Cadillac." And "Sounds Better in the Song." I've heard that one several times here and there, but I think it's one of Cooley's best. And I love the live arrangement. I think that was the best performance off the live album.

Going for something more realistic than "Goodbye" and "Daddy's Cup", I wanna see Cooley break out "Lido." They played it some right after the three-night run in Birmingham, but didn't play it here. Cooley doesn't play a lot of covers, and that's one I want to see.

Because I know he'd knock it out of the fucking park.

Lido Shuffle for sure. They were just working on it at soundcheck in Birmingham in the fall and then they broke it out in Texas just after. I've also got a pretty strong hankering for Southern Thing which they rarely play outside of Homecoming. Southern Thing at the beginning fo a set and its ideological bookend Ever South later in the same set would be fantastic.

True. But it's always nice to get something you haven't heard in awhile or one you've never heard.

Road Cases and Greenville to Baton Rouge are at the top of my list that I haven't personally heard. Also any Dirty South deep cuts.

Sands of Iwo Jima. With the story.

What a fantastic tribute. I think this is one of Patterson Hood's best songs. I may have 30 songs I'd say are in Patterson's top five songs, but this one would consistently be there no matter how I shook out the rest.

This is one I wished got played more often. Reminds me a lot of my granddad, who's been gone about 15 years now.

My theory on this one is that seems to fall in a rather awkward (high) vocal register for Patterson.

Might be time to add "Self Destructive Zones" to the list of rarities...

Might as well add any Cooley song that wasn’t played at Homecoming... He’s got about 15 songs in rotation , 2-3 that are “semi-rarities “ (One Of These Days, Love Like This) and that’s about all you’re getting from The Stroker Ace.

Yeah those and When The Pin Hits The Shell. He breaks it out every so often about like the ones that you mentioned. I was psyched that he played it at HC this year because I really love that song even if it does kind of big things down at a show to some extent.

Cooley has been like that for a while. He tends to play the same batch of songs with a minor amount of the shuffling that Patterson does. I mean he has some really good songs that just sit on the shelf. A lot of them.

Pretty sure the last few have been the slowed down, lower-voiced versions, and they've sounded mighty fine. Isn't one on the Richmond 3DD DVD a few years back? (I could be making that up)
