Default playlist of New/Old songs

hi all, we made a Youtube playlist with all the New/Old songs that Damien has been playing around live or in the studio and could be part of the G project (environmental album), some album with the Berlin people, the old 10 Days to Barcelona project or his 4th studio album (to be released in 2028).
Youtube playlist:

1) 100 Miles Across the Room
Or song #8 from the 10 Days to Barcelona trip. Uploaded to Youtube quite out of the blue before the summer tour started in 2018. So far he has only play it live a couple times. He doesn’t seem very enthusiastic about the song and fans are not requesting it either.
2) Solitary/Black and Blue
Another track from the Barcelona trip (day 5). A part of the song was played in Reykjavik in 2010 on piano but this time he played the whole song at the 2018 Budapest gig on guitar.
3) Astronaut
A new track, fully finished, and played at almost every show since summer 2018, played for the first time at Zafferana Etnea. He’s mostly played it on piano but also on guitar and acapella. In the show at Cap Roig he explained the song to be about unconditional friendship. In the recent gig in Cork he played it on the harmonium.
4) Behind Those Eyes
Played for the first time at the charity gig in Paris in December 2017 as an unfinished/work in progress song. He's played a few times this year and remains unfinished.
5) For Better Days
Played just once at the Lubjana gig in summer 2018. Unfinished. On guitar.
6) Why Do I Hold Onto
This was improvised the day before the show in Lubjana and a part of it upped to Instagram, then played in full at the Lubjana show. He also played it again in the American tour.
7) This Keeps on Happening
Played for the first time at the show in Bucharest 2018 and then again in Mexico. Always with someone holding a piece of paper with the lyrics.
8) Going Nowhere
Played once at the Bucharest show, again with someone holding the lyrics. Unfinished track.
9) What you Feel
Piano track, played a few times during the American tour.
10) Mustard Seeds
Recorded during the last album sessions, was on the list of songs for MFFF but didn't make it. Seems to have been re-recorded recently so could eventually make it to some future album.
11) No Moon
Uploaded at the end of 2018 on Instagram (one minute). From ther studio pictures, it should be part of the G project, which is this Environment album.
12) Holy Water
Played before the summer on Instagram on a piano in Ireland. This is quite an old song that started life as an instrumental included in the 2014 Amy Berg movie Every Secret Thing. He played the song a few times during the last US/AU dates.

13) Nothing Had a Hold on Me
Also played before the summer on Instagram, and tagged as part of the G project. The song was performed once 10 years ago at a gig at Trinity College, where he actually presented the then-forthcoming environment album.

14) Stone
Again an old song, performed once at the end of the 9 tour in Cardiff in 2007. Then this winter he performed it again in New York as a request and mentioned it’s gonna be on the Environment album and that it’s been recorded with a choir.
15) Keep it to Myself
Uploaded to Instagram (partially) before the recent gig in Cork, it is a duet with Icelandic singer JFDR. The song was then played in full for the first time at the Cork gig. He explained the song was written together with Amy Kuney back in 2009 and recorded. Damien was not happy with the recording and did it again this time with JFDR.
16) Cough Cough
Another song uploaded to Instagram this summer. But doesn’t seem like album material.
17) No One Need Know
Also a bit of new-oldish song. Played for the first time in 2012 but was not included in MFFF. Seemed abandoned but he started playing again last summer and been plying quite often since then. The lyrics seem to refer to Lisa’s songs, Teeth in particular.
18) The Truth is not Enough
This song seems to have been written around the MFFF era but didn’t make the cut. Played for the first time live in London in November 2014. He’s played it a few times since last summer. The lyrics fit the main topics in MFFF.
19) Back to Her Man
Another track recorded and intended for MFFF, written as an homage to Leonard Cohen. Played for the first time in Paris at the aftershow following the salle Pleyel gig in 2012. A version of the song unmixed was upped to YT after Cohen died. He’s played it quite a bit in recent years, in particular with the Berlin people so might end up in a collaboration album with them.
20) Stoic
And last but not least, one of Damo’s best songs ever. First played at the Grado aftershow a few years back, he’s been playing it quite a bit in recent years, mainly cos people request it a lot. It is one of the songs of the 10 Days to Barcelona trip, so written all songs and lyrics in one day. When asked about it, he sadly said he plans to never release it, as the song “points fingers” but there’s hope he changes his mind, he has to realise somehow how amazing the song is. At Cap Roig last summer he explained the song being about the ending of a relationship.
I made you laugh, I made you cry, I made you open up your eyes, didn't I?
