Pretty pointless argument I would say . Showbiz is a great song, one of their best, and seeing it live would be beyond awesome.

Yeah, but this place is full of people who think I Belong to You is a good song, their judgement is not to be trusted.

Because it's like an orgasm in a song. Slow build up and screamful delight at the end

You're assuming everyone knows what an orgasm is like

Sober is one of my top favorite songs ever.

A bit reminiscent of late 60's - 70's German bands, which makes the song awesome by default.
This. And the sheer emotional impact. BAM! IN THE FACE. No mercy.

Not much more needs to be said by me.

people like it cos its off the 1st album. It is ok, especially live with ashamed outro but its nothing amazing and still is there most repetitive song to date with only one riff which is repeated constantly on the guitar and for vocals

Something doesn't have to be complicated to be good.

I personally don't think Showbiz at Reading comes close to Zenith 01 or Eurockeennes 00... there have been tons better performances, but I think it's so loved because it's their most recent performance and was such a random one to choose to play at a big festival.

I was certain they'd bust it out for Wembley the year after, but they didn't . But they made up for it with Micro Cuts

So there, we're back on the point, WHY do they prefer Reading? I can't see a single thing that would make it better. The climax is less epic, the voice has less emotion and....well, yeah...
I've seen several versions of Showbiz and I still think Reading is the best. Comparing Reading to MCM per example, I find the vocals way more solid and the guitar way more powerful in 2006. Yes, some of the 'raw' feeling in the early versions got lost in the process, but in 2006 it just sounds more mature but still has the anger that the song asks for.

But that's just my opinion.
