Motion City Soundtrack

The Ultimate Motion City Soundtrack Setlist

Last week I brought you the first installment in the “Ultimate Setlist” playlist. This week, I’m doing it again. This time it’s for one of my all-time favorite acts, Motion City Soundtrack. I’m not ready to pour one out, but the band recently embarked on their farewell tour, and I figured now would be as good a time as any to try and curate a career-spanning setlist. No pressure, right? Same rules as last time: 22 songs including a two song encore. The full track listing is below and you can find the playlists on Apple Music and Spotify.

I received great feedback on last week’s setlist and I loved the discussion of Jimmy Eat World’s discography and all of the posts sharing ultimate setlists. I even liked all of the people (rightfully or wrongfully) telling me I was wrong for not including a certain song. One quick reminder though is that this is not intended as a best of playlist, but rather a dream setlist. So some songs I can’t imagine the band playing, or that don’t quite fit right in the sequence, may not make the cut. With that said, definitely click that quote bubble to join us in the forums and let me know what you think, create your own setlist, and throw out ideas for other bands you think would work perfectly with this kind of playlist.
