The perfect Paramore setlist for me would be the new album all the way through. After those songs, I would still like to hear the singles from the other albums. The perfect closer, however, would be Born For This. That song singlehandedly got me into Paramore because of the incredibly catchy chorus.

Also, I've never seen Paramore so that would be really awesome to get these tickets.

I want to go to the Atlanta date

Orlando, FL, please.

I've been a fan since '07 and have consistently missed their Florida tour stops for one reason or another (weddings, etc.), so I'd want a combination of all four of their albums to allow me to see certain songs live that they may not be playing any more along with an encore of My Heart (with screams) and All I Wanted (closing song).

Rough Setlist:

1) For A Pessimist, I'm Pretty Optimistic
2) Emergency
3) All We Know
4) Born For This
5) Anklebiters
6) Ain't It Fun
7) Hallelujah
8) Turn It Off
9) Feeling Sorry
10) Looking Up
11) Let the Flames Begin
12) Part II
13) Fences
14) Renegade
15) Hello Cold World
16) In the Mourning
17) Daydreaming
18) Be Alone
19) Brick by Boring Brick
20) Careful
21) Brighter
22) Pressure
23) Misery Business

------------------------------
Encore:
24) My Heart w/ screams
25) Closing Song: All I Wanted - Hearing this song live once would be incredible. It's always been one of my favorites from the band for multiple reasons and Hayley's vocal performance is just ridiculous. Especially since they have never done it before, seeing them perform it just once would be a treat.

Would love to be able to go to the Detroit show. As for my setlist:

Careful
Grow Up
Now
For A Pessimist..
Here We Go Again
Born For This
Proof
Last Hope
Playing God
Feeling Sorry
Franklin
Part II
Anklebiters
Fences
Emergency
Still Into You
I Caught Myself
Misery Business
Brick By Boring Brick

My Heart (acoustic)
Let the Flames Begin


Let the Flames Begin just translates so well live, and is easily the most intense part of Paramore's live show. You can just feel the excitement of this song live, and it's always the song that many people look forward to. Closing on it would showcase this even more, and allow for an even more extended outro to close the set on. To end on such a huge rally cry would easily have the crowd in an uproar, and end on the highest note they possibly could.

The best setlist for me would be a good mix of all four records. I got into them during the Riot! cycle, and the band evolved as I grew older. The self-titled is easily their best work in my opinion, due to the diversity of the songs. No two songs on that record sound the same.

If given the chance, I would love to go to the Boston date.

I think playing AWKIF the whole way through for a 10th anniversary tour would be sweet, because it shows the progression of the bands sound from when that album came out to now. After that, I think 3 songs from each of the other albums would be ideal, in no particular order whatsoever. Misery Business has always been my favorite closer by them, because it is such a high energy song and really closes any of their shows quite well.

I would like to go to the Camden, NJ show.

Clearly start it off with Misery Business..Monster.. Decode..crushcrushcrush.. CONSPIRACY.. Playing God.. That's What You Get.. Only Exception.. close it off with Ain't It Fun.. basically starting off with the "Old" and closing out with the New. I love pretty much anything they've put out so sprinkle random songs in there as well.

I want to go to the NY show please.

my perfect setlist

interlude: moving on
fast in my car
brick by boring brick
still into you
looking up
hallelujah
here we go
that's what you get
franklin
all i wanted
anklebiters
playing god
misery business
all we know
ain't it fun
emergency


closer/encore:
misguided ghosts
pressure

I chose is Pressure because if i did get chosen for this, it would be my first time seeing them ever. And Pressure was the first song I've ever heard from Paramore, and I think it would be fitting to end an amazing set with one of the first songs that got me into them. CHEESY, but it is what it is.

I want to go to the Seattle, WA date! Thanks for this, guys.

My perfect Paramore setlist would have to include the first half of Brand New Eyes and the middle of the new album. Those are easily my favorite sequences of all of their albums, especially BNE since that was the album that really got me into them. Everything else would be a bonus. As far as the closer, I think I'd go with "Let the Flames Begin/Part II." The end of Part II is pretty wild/huge; would be a perfect end to the show.

The Sunrise, FL date would be ideal for me.

Boston, MA!!
The funny thing is I had this setlist created months before I even knew about the contest. I chose "Still into You" as the closer (before the encore) because it's the most well known song from their new self-titled record. Everyone would know the words and get hyped up for an encore. I chose "The Only Exception" as the actual closer because the song is arguably their most popular and the lyrics mean a lot to many people. I also love when a band closes with a slower song because it sort of brings you back to reality after a perfect night. The song would really wrap up the set and I think the audience would love it.

I actually put a little bit of time into thinking about this. My setlist would look something like...

Moving On
Ankle Biters
Brick by Boring Brick
For A Pessimist
Here We Go Again
Day Dreaming
Ain't It Fun
Ignorance
crushcrushcrush
Holiday
Proof
Be Alone
Decode
I'm Not Angry Anymore
Fences
Now
Misery Business

Encore:
In The Mourning
Still Into You
Born For This

I really love the 3 interludes on the new album and think it'd be great to hear them spread out in the setlist much like the album. For the most part, the setlist I put together includes alot more upbeat tracks and less of the ballads to keep the energy up. I like the idea of closing the pre-encore with their biggest hit (wasn't it?) and then coming back with a ballad, into their latest single, and ending with Born For This which I think is easily their best closing track for an album and would be an excellent way to end a show. Threw in one All We Know track for good measure, and overall heavier on the new album because it really is pretty excellent.

The San Diego date would be my choice!

I actually won tickets to the warped tour a long time ago (2006, maybe?) but couldn't go - I ended up giving the ticket to my brother, and he brought me back a Paramore t-shirt as a thank you... wonder what happened to that thing...

ANYWAY

Set list: (order is up for grabs, but these would be cool to see)
Careful
Ignorance
Playing God
Brick by Boring Brick
Turn It Off
Feeling Sorry
Looking up
Where the Lines Overlap
Now
Grow Up
Still Into You
Anklebiters
Proof
Crazy Girls
Be Alone
Escape Route (LOVE THIS)
Pessimist
That's What You Get
Hallelujah
Misery Business
Miracles
Born For This
Pressure
Brighter
Whoa

And the EPIC CLOSER:
All I Wanted
Because, duh, it's an EPIC CLOSER. End of story.

Anaheim on 10/19 sounds pretty rad. It's really a great lineup, I don't know why we didn't get tickets yet but now I guess I should wait and cross my fingers....
